Shark Week Kicks Off With Andy Samberg as ‘Chief Shark Officer’ [VIDEO]
Begun in 1987, Discovery's weeklong tribute to sharks is nearly 25 years old and now a full-fledged cultural phenomenon. Seven new shark-centric programs will premiere on Discovery this week including Samberg's August 4th special 'Shark City,' in which he swims with a school of Caribbean reef sharks.
"They were biting chum right next to me, then one of them took a nip at the surfboard, right where I was hanging out. That was when I decided to call it a day,” he said to EW.com.
