More Than One Narrator
Okay, we know the biggest Deadliest Catch fans have seen every episode and heard Mike Rowe’s voice. While Mike from Dirty Jobs does narrate Deadliest Catch in the US, overseas viewers know someone else. In the UK, Bill Petrie is the narrator, whereas in Malaysia, Nasar Bilal Khan does all the voiceover work.
The narrator’s voice is different from the rest of the show’s cast members’ voices. The showrunners felt that giving the stories a more familiar accent or speech would help viewers connect with the show. We think they might have been right about that since Deadliest Catch has gone global.
