Plot Synopsis

FISH MY CITY WITH MIKE IACONELLI is a one-hour docuseries that follows award-winning professional bass fisherman and TV personality Mike Iaconelli on his global search for the world's most iconic fish living alongside some of the world's busiest concrete jungles. From Austin, Miami, New York and New Orleans to Taipei and London, Iaconelli traverses the globe's most exotic cities, encountering fish of all shapes and sizes in the most unexpected metropolitan locations. During each 60-minute episode, Iaconelli guides viewers on an unpredictable journey through a different major city around the world, uncovering the often-untold stories of strange and amazing fish lurking in ponds, canals, sewer systems and rivers. His mission: to catch three specific species of fish called his "bucket-list fish." Along the way he encounters old friends and knowledgeable locals with invaluable intel, hunts down mysterious habitats and chases urban legends, all in a bid to come face-to-face with the most legendary fish species of each city. As he winds through waterways, Iaconelli showcases the magnificent fish, unearthing their history and connection to each city and exposing their behavior, biology and unique nuances. Episodes include:

"Across the Pond" (Friday, Oct. 12 at 10pm): Mike Iaconelli travels to London in search of three of the great city's most iconic fish species. One is a fearsome predator that will even devour birds, another is piscine royalty that is often known as "The Prince of the River" and last is a sentimental favorite that recovered from a devastating disease outbreak. To find them he must explore London's many urban waterways and uncover this ancient city's long fishing history.

"Fastest Fish in Miami" (Friday, Oct. 19 at 10pm): Miami is known as the Magic City, Florida is known as the fishing capital of the world and Mike Iaconelli is known for loving a great challenge. Doubling down, Iaconelli challenges himself to catch six different species of fish: three exotic species that have all traveled a long way to make themselves at home in Miami's freshwater canals and three saltwater classics, including the fastest and one of the oldest fish living today.

"Giants of Taipei" (Friday, Oct. 26 at 10pm): Mike Iaconelli is in Taiwan in search of three species of city-dwelling fish that personify this fascinating island: a drain-dwelling monster that originally escaped from fish farms, a mysterious visitor from the open seas that makes fleeting visits to the city via a watery highway, and a true monster with shark-like teeth and a reputation for biting its prey clean in half.

"New York" (Friday, Nov. 2 at 10pm): Mike Iaconelli heads to New York City for the ultimate urban fishing experience in one of the greatest cities on Earth. Between the Hudson River, East River and Jamaica Bay, fishermen can find amazing fishing opportunities right in the city. On this adventure Iaconelli's bucket-list fish include the striped bass - the most iconic fish in New York; the fluke - a master of disguise; and the bluefish - a prized gamefish famous for its fight. Will he complete his bucket list as he fishes through the Big Apple?

"New Orleans" (Friday, Nov. 9 at 10pm): Mike Iaconelli travels to New Orleans in search of three of the city's most iconic fish species. It won't be easy, as he must deal with a fearsome prehistoric predator that can grow to 10 feet long, challenging weather conditions and unusual events happening in the city's flood control system. To complete his bucket list he'll need to explore New Orleans' many urban waterways and revisit the scene of his most important tournament win.

"Austin's City Limits" (Friday, Nov. 16 at 10pm): Mike Iaconelli ventures to Austin in search of three of Texas' most amazing fish: a fish so intelligent it can outsmart the average fisherman and sneakily escape, another that is so rare it's found nowhere else on the planet, and an enormous and incredibly secretive fish that requires days of fishing to catch. Along the way we will witness Austin's finest lakes and rivers and discover that fishing is the perfect window into a city's history, nature and lifeblood.
