Deadliest Catch plans Capt. Harris tribute

Posted by Jason Triplett Sunday, February 14, 2010


Discovery announced that they do in fact plan to have a tribute to Captain Harris of the Cornelia Marie. It's no surprise to me really, because it just seemed like that would happen no matter what. The bigger news though is that Harris will be a part of the coming season of "The Deadliest Catch" this April. They had just finished shooting the season when the tragedy happened.

Variety spoke with executive producer Thom Beers, who said "He'll be a big part of the season and the series, but this is a huge loss to the series. The fate and the future of the Cornelia Marie and crew (are) up in the air. I'm flying up to meet with his sons and figure out what to do going forward."

While the future of the boat and the show may be uncertain t this point, I feel everything will pull together. It is a fantastic show, and I am sure that Harris will still be a part of everyone's lives in spirit.

    Dear Mr. Beers: Please, please do everything you can to continue to feature the Cornelia Marie on the show. Not knowing who will be on board and how everyone is coping would leave us bereft. Nina.
