Frozen Chosen, The 1x53

Emmy Award Winner for “Outstanding Achievement for Documentary Programs – Cultural”

For sixteen days each winter a vast frozen lake in North America becomes the epicenter of an ancient ritual. Brave hunters venture out on the windswept ice armed with seven foot spears. Their quarry is a prehistoric fish, the Giant Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens). These living fossils are virtually unchanged from their ancestors that lived 100 million years ago in the age of the dinosaurs. Lake Sturgeon can live for over 100 years and grow to 300 pounds. The Frozen Chosen brings you face to face with these giant fish and shoulder to shoulder with the hunters obsessed with hunting them.
