Lisa Rollins will star in the Weather Channel’s new reality series, “Catching Hell."

The series follows the crew of three commercial vessels fishing for a profit. Even though Rollins and her cast members often come face to face with sharks, the North Carolina native wasn’t fazed.

“Working with the spear keeps that little bit of edge and keeps me on my toes,” Rollins said.

The Siesta Key resident is the only woman featured on the series and has been spearfishing since 2005. 

Rollins, who considers herself a diver first, started spearfishing for the competition.

“The competive nature in me put the spear gun in my hand,” Rollins said.

Rollins said the experience was unique and rewarding. She is looking forward to the premiere party, which is being held June 1 at Daiquri Deck .

“I know what I’m doing and having people learn about spearfishing makes it more exciting for me," Rollins said.

"Catching Hell” premieres at 9 p.m Sunday, June 1, on the Weather Channel. 

Daiquiri Deck Siesta Key will host a red carpet premiere party with Rollins from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday, June 1.
