Show Summary

Stuck in a dead-end job? Daydreaming about a new career? Combed through the classifieds lately looking for your next calling?
If so, take a look at what Discovery Channel is offering:
Road Kill Collector: Must be able to work long hours braving oncoming traffic while picking up all manner of smelly dead creatures. Benefits include working outdoors.
Zoo Cage Cleaner: Performs necessary health-giving service for animals inhabiting the city zoo. Requires ability to tolerate large volumes of animal excrement while avoiding the occasional grumpy gorilla.
This summer, Discovery Channel goes to work with the unsung American laborers who make their living doing the most unthinkable, yet vital vocations in DIRTY JOBS. This world premiere original series begins Tuesday, July 26, 2005 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).
Each week, our brave host and apprentice Mike Rowe introduces viewers to a hardworking group of men and women who overcome fear, danger and sometimes stench to accomplish their daily tasks. With his hands-on approach, Rowe assumes the duties of the jobs in question working alongside rattlesnake catchers, fish processors, bee removers and other professionals performing the vital yet outlandish occupations that simply must get done. A tremendously good sport, Rowe knows that whether it�s serving greasy slop to pigs in Iowa, or picking up five-day-old road kill and transporting it to a crematorium, it�s all part of an honest day�s work.
At the end of each enlightening, horrifying and hilarious episode, viewers are left with an appreciation for hardworking people, and they�ll know it takes to tackle tough jobs.
DIRTY JOBS is produced by Pilgrim Film & Television; Craig Piligian is the executive producer. For the Discovery Channel, Gena McCarthy is the executive producer.
