Default Captain Sig Backs The Hillstrands

Didn't think he wouldn't, but still cool to see it in print.

Capt. Sig Hansen backs 'Deadliest Catch' duo
EXCLUSIVE: Breaks silence amid Discovery legal drama
By Matthew Belloni

Sept 24, 2010, 10:36 AM ET
Capt. Sig Hansen, star of Discovery's hit reality series "Deadliest Catch," is breaking his silence on the network's lawsuit against two of his co-stars. Not surprisingly, he's backing fellow captains Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand.

Capt. Sig Hansen
"I am very surprised that after all we have been through this past year, Discovery would attack Capt. John and Andy like this," Hansen tells The Hollywood Reporter in a written statement, referring to the death in February of co-star Capt. Phil Harris. "I want people to know the captains stand together and me and my brothers support them 100%."

As THR previously reported, the Hillstrands were sued for $3 million by Discovery for failing to finish work on a spinoff special called "Hillstranded," which was to air this fall. The Hillstrands' lawyer Jeff Cohen then fired back with a statement decrying Discovery's attempt to "extort" his clients.

It's unclear whether the Hillstrand brothers, who have participated in five seasons of the Emmy-winning series, will return to the show. King crab season begins in October, and the plan is for Discovery and producer Original Prods. to resume production as usual.

A Discovery spokesperson declined to comment.

Might I add too, if the other boats take the same stance, and the Discovery Channel tries to push TB off the show (although from what YD says, it's Beers who has the say), the Discovery Channel could find themselves even more fucked then losing revenue off one special.
