The scariest crime is the one you never see coming. Someone You Thought You Knew tells the stories of murders that were orchestrated by a master manipulator, scheming right under everyone's noses. The victims are killed by people they loved, trusted and thought they knew... but really didn't know them at all.

Shaquille O'Neal accidentally signed himself up to be thrust into the teeth of the 30th Anniversary of Shark Week, but there's one catch, Shaq doesn't do sharks. To overcome his fear, he trains with Ex-Marine comedian Rob Riggle for the big plunge.

Shark experts Jimi Partington and Brandon McMillan embark on the first manned expedition to the darkest depths of the sea floor off Guadalupe Island, in search of the notorious 20-foot-long great white shark, Deep Blue.

Phelps Vs Shark: Great Gold vs Great White. The Great White Shark meets the Greatest of All Time. Who will win the battle for ocean supremacy?

What is Anomaly?

Anomaly Entertainment was founded in 2017 by Matthew Kelly and Michael Sorensen. Kelly and Sorensen joined forces at Discovery Communications, where they served as Vice Presidents of Development and Production.

Notably, they have developed and/or executive produced several shows that have set company-wide records, including Gold Rush (highest-rated series in network history), SkyWire Live (most-watched event in network history), Amish Mafia (highest-rated freshman premiere in network history), and the three highest rated Shark Weeks in network history.

At Science they rebranded the network with shows such as Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman (highest-rated series premiere in network history), Punkin Chunkin (highest rated special in network history), and Oddities (longest running original series in network history).
