It’s been the subject of countless books, movies, and pirate lore for centuries. Now for the first time, Discovery uses new, cutting-edge technology and sophisticated equipment to reveal the “wickedest city on Earth” in the original Canadian documentary DRAIN PIRATE CITY, premiering Sunday, May 28 at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT. The latest edition of Discovery’s popular “Drain” series, the special uses a unique, virtual CGI draining process to recreate what happened one fateful day when the ocean swallowed up the city of Port Royal, Jamaica, sealing a moment in time for the infamous port and its real-life pirates who roamed the Caribbean. Commissioned and developed by Discovery, DRAIN PIRATE CITY follows Henderson on his search to uncover how the disaster unfolded at the catastrophic site, creating the Pompeii of the New World. Remarkably, the investigation reveals that Port Royal was no shanty town, but a thriving mercantile hub of the central Caribbean that surpassed London and Boston in wealth, architecture, and sophistication.
