Apparently a dirty job is never done.
Discovery Channel has announced that Mike Rowe will host Dirty Jobs: Rowe’d Trip, premiering Tuesday, July 7 at 9/8c. Described as “part reunion, part road-trip, part look-back-special, and part ‘Where are they now?,'” the four-episode series “highlights everything that made Dirty Jobs an ‘essential’ franchise in the first place, as the original crew travel together in a mini-RV and reminisce about past adventures.”
“Dirty Jobs Forrest Gumped its way on the air in 2004 and changed my life forever,” Rowe said in a statement. “I know that fans of the show will have as much fun watching, as we did filming.”
