'Charlie Moore: No Offense' premieres Friday on Versus
Versus will be debuting another original series on Friday. "Charlie Moore: No Offense" will follow the avid angler, also known as "the Mad Fisherman," as he travels throughout the country on numerous outdoor adventures with celebrity and non-celebrity guests.
The 10-episode series, airing Fridays at 5:30 p.m., features the loud, brash Bostonian immersing himself in the local flavors of various cities and towns across America.
This season will feature celebrity guests from sports and entertainment, including Boston Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek, Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, former New England Patriots offensive lineman Todd Rucci and NHL Hall of Famer Ray Bourque. Rickey Medlocke, guitarist for rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd, and DMC, of legendary rap group Run/DMC, will also appear.
Viewers are being invited to try to appear in an episode by completing an application detailing why they would like to be part of the show and why "the Mad Fisherman" should come to their area to fish.
"Charlie Moore: No Offense" episode descriptions through February are after the jump (the rest of the descriptions are still pending):
The flowing river, the log cabin bank, the tumbleweeds rolling through the potato fields; all are representative of Island Park, Idaho. There is a peaceful tranquility to the area ... that is until the Mad Fisherman and his crew descend on the town.
Feb. 11: "Lancaster, Pa. with Todd Rucci"
Charlie travels to Pennsylvania to film an episode with former New England Patriot Todd Rucci. Charlie and Todd head to Todd's private golf club, where the plan is not to play nine holes but to fish for bass.
Feb. 18: "Hawaii Bone Fishing"
Charlie fishes for bonefish and joins his local guest for an authentic Hawaiian-style home-cooked meal. However, even Hawaii is not far enough from the mainland to keep the Mad Fisherman from bringing his unique Boston attitude and style to the island.
Feb. 25: "Charlie’s Backyard, Enfield, Conn."
The cast and crew travel all over the world to exotic locations to bring the viewers the best in fishing, fine dining, and fun. But there's all that -- and more -- right in Charlie's home region of New England as they embark on an adventure filled with steak, cigars and fishing.
