Looking to capitalize on the success of both the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week and the network’s own Twitter sensation Sharknado, SyFy has announced that the inagural installment of Sharknado Week will take place from July 26 to August 2, 2014.
In addition to Sharknado 2: The Second One, SyFy will also premiere Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark and Roger Corman’s Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda.
The network also plans to honor the best in shark movie history with programs such as Sharkmania: The Top 15 Biggest Baddest Bloodiest Bites, an original documentary featuring various personalities discussing the best bite scenes from iconic shark films.
SyFy hopes to recreate last year’s massive social media success when Sharknado 2: The Second One premieres Wednesday, July 30 at 9 p.m.
