Discovery Channel Planning Tribute To Captain Phil Harris

The Discovery Channel is in the middle of planning a tribute to Captain Phil Harris. Harris, of Discovery’s hit docu-series Deadliest Catch, died Feb. 9 of complications from a stroke he suffered late last month. He was 53. The cranky but proud captain of the Cornelia Marie was a veteran commercial fisherman.

Harris will be featured prominently in the upcoming sixth season of Deadliest Catch, set to debut on Discovery in April, the network also confirmed.
