ShopHQ Reels In ‘Deadliest Catch’ Seafood Products

ShopHQ, making use of its ties to reality TV guru Thom Beers and continuing its bid to appeal to men, is launching a line of products inspired by “Deadliest Catch.”

Captain Sig Hansen will be a special guest Friday for the premiere of the food-based show, which will feature seafood and other items inspired by the Original Productions series, which airs on Discovery Channel.


The segment is the first of several new proprietary brands the home shopping network will present as it repositions ShopHQ as EVINE Live, with the complete rebranding planned to take place in the first half of next year.

“Deadliest Catch,” the creation of former ShopHQ board member Beers, is about the dangerous lives of crab fisherman out on the Bering Sea.

Inspired by the reality series, ShopHQ will feature seafood and other kitchen and cookware items as part of the network’s “Deadliest Catch” collection.

Hansen, captain of the Northwestern, will share his own personal stories and close calls during filming of “Deadliest Catch.” Fans of “Deadliest Catch” will also have the opportunity to interact and connect live with Hansen during a social chat hosted on ShopHQ’s Facebook page at 9 pm ET.

“Being on a crab boat in the middle of the Bering Sea, you face all kinds of challenges — 20 degree weather and an icy deck on a rolling ship. It’s a brutal place,” Hansen said in a canned statement. “But braving the elements is worth it, since the best fresh caught crab in the world comes from there. I can’t wait to bring it to homes across America through the new ‘Deadliest Catch’ seafood line at ShopHQ.”

“It’s exciting for us to bring the thrill of Discovery Channel’s ‘Deadliest Catch’ to our ShopHQ viewers,” ShopHQ CEO Mark Bozek said. “As the first ‘EVINE Live Presents’ brand to debut since we announced the repositioning of ShopHQ, ‘Deadliest Catch’ and captain Sig Hansen will no doubt entertain our customers. Viewers will not only get a glimpse of what it’s like to risk it all on a crab ship on the Bering Sea, but will discover exclusive show-inspired items not available anywhere else.”

FremantleMedia North America serves as the licensing agent for “Deadliest Catch.” The show recently completed its 10th season and won a 2014 Emmy Award for Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program.

    Not trying to be “crabby” but the Deadliest Catch maneuver doesn’t surprise me.

    You see ShopHq (whom still doesn’t broadcast in HD) is such a low budget, low talent driven network full of 90% Invicta Chinese mass produced watches with a dash or two of jewelry and other products…etc. Awful!

    If it weren’t for Daniel Green (barely) they would have -0 integrity as their hosts are so transparent and cheesy to say the least.

    I truly hope Allison (I’m a trained chef and I oversell and try to act hip on air) Waggoner doesn’t host the DC presentations. My god I’d rather eat a pound of feces covered rusty nails than listen to her bullcrap!

    This network is tainted, they smell too!! Can you smell their stench?

    Sadly the Deadliest Catch will now be tainted and embarrassed too.

    This network needs a complete overhaul, I mean just look how utterly stupid Daniel Green looks peddling 60mm Invicta watches on his tiny 6″ wrist while looking right at the camera (and lying through his little teeth) that he could easily wear the mammoth watches.

    Tim Temple, well by day he resembles a sea turtle with glasses and by night he resembles a sea turtle with glasses selling crappy watches from a crappy unscrupulous company! (Timmie boy loves to use the word fervor) He’s so intelligent must be a wiz at Scrabble. Tim, do us ALL a favor and don’t do anymore voices on air cause Mel Blanc your certainly not.

    Let’s also not forget this is the same network that is selling you Waterford Crystal, look at how FAKE these people are in order to separate you from your hard earned $$. Melissa Miner and her BFF Jorge (I am such a smart and sexy sweetie pie) basically having an orgasm over (not the real Mcoy) Waterford Crystal, and the dummies buy them!!

    The Deadliest Catch might make your tv smell like rotten fish with ShopHq in tow, get your moist napkins ready cause your gonna need them to wipe all that ShopHq excrement off your faces!

    Ahoy mates, finally witnessed a DC presentation.


    Right now somewhere the Gorton’s fisherman is laughing his wrinkly oysters off!!!

    The way ShopHq does food demos is the worst, they have on-air orgasms as they taste the food, sometimes just as the food just touches their lips.

    There’s no filler here folks, just all 100% FULL OF SHITNESS!!
