Airing Of Alaska Cadborosaurus Footage Back On?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 14th, 2010

Several weeks back, I mentioned here on Cryptomundo that the airing of the much discussed “15 cadborosauruses video” was possibly in jeopardy because of a lawsuit involving the Hillstrands and Discovery.

I have now been tipped off by yet another Cryptomundian that an agreement had been reached with all parties and filming on the Deadliest Catch would begin this week and that the Hillstranded spin-off would be completed.

Just weeks after announcing their exit, Deadliest Catch stars Capts. Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand and Capt. Sig Hansen are back aboard the hit Discovery Channel series, a network rep confirms.

The Hillstrands announced their exit on Sept. 28th, saying they were unable to continue filming the show due to ongoing litigation with the network. Discovery sued the brothers a week prior for $3 million, claiming the stars refused to finish work on a planned Deadliest Catch spin-off, entitled Hillstranded.

Hansen was not involved in the lawsuit, but left the series in support of the Hillstrands.

“We’re happy we worked everything out with Discovery,” the trio said in a statement. “A deal’s a deal. We’re heading up to Dutch Harbor to start filming the new season of Deadliest Catch and hopefully it will be the best one yet.”

As part of the settlement, Discovery’s lawsuit will be dropped and the Hillstrands will complete work on their spin-off, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which first broke the news.

“Everyone worked really hard on putting together Hillstranded and we’re looking forward to wrapping that up,” the brothers added in a statement. “It’s something new that we hope people will enjoy.”

Season 7 of Deadliest Catch is set to begin filming next week.omg! from Yahoo!

Now that the lawsuits have been resolved and production resumes, will the footage be aired soon?

Inquiring minds want to know…

    According to this article, the new series is set to start in April 2011 and mentions investigating a “Loch Ness” type legend.

    I don’t understand, if Discovery has great images of a possible pod of Cadborosaurus why choose a program like Deadliest Catch to broad cast the images. Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to air the footage on History Channel’s Monster Quest or Animal Planet’s Lost Tapes where the theme is Cryptozoology? It kinda sounds to me like they don’t have much footage of the animals to give the topic its own show worthy of airing, not just a spin off I mean if you have images of a possible new creature to science it should receive its own documentary.

    Check out this Entertainment Weekly article about the whole mess here:

    Pay close attention to the very last paragraph! Now it makes more sense why the Caddy footage is going to the Deadliest Catch Captains!
