Fishing For Trouble w/t (1 x 30′ broadcast pilot) – Documentary presented by TIME magazine’s Africa Bureau Chief Alex Perry, a veteran correspondent who has covered more than 20 wars, including Iraq and Afghanistan, across Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The film follows Perry as he casts a line into waters in one of the world’s most challenging and treacherous locations and gets under the skin of the people in a remote and conflicted area, through a shared love of fishing. The team is currently filming in The Sudd, in South Sudan, one of the world’s largest wetlands and one of the last uncharted places on the planet. Perry is trying to catch his first Nile Perch, a species that can grow up to six feet long.
