NEW YORK – Makers of the popular Discovery series “Deadliest Catch” are heading south for a spinoff.

The network said Friday it will make a new series focusing on the fishing community of Newport, Oregon, called “Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove.” It’s set to premiere next fall.

“Deadliest Catch,” about fishing boats in Alaska’s Bering Sea, is one of Discovery’s signature series and it is headed into its 12th season.

The new series will focus on boats that navigate massive waves, sandbars and currents along the Oregon coast.
