By Christopher Rocchio, 01/12/2007
The Sci Fi Channel has announced that it has greenlit the production of Destination Truth, a new six-episode Sci Fi Investigates-like reality series that will allow viewers to follow one man's attempt to get to the truth about unexplained mysteries around the world. The one-hour show is scheduled to premiere sometime in Spring 2007.
Hosted by world adventurer and eager truth-seeker Josh Gates, each Destination Truthepisode will follow Gates and his small production crew as they visit a different destination around the world where some of the most notorious, supernatural and mysterious stories originate.
The investigations will include the Fire Worm of Mongolia; the Chilean Chupacabre; the flying dinosaur-like creatures over Papau, New Guinea; a haunted village in Thailand; and the wolfman of Argentina. In addition to searching for evidence and talking to witnesses and experts, Gates and his crew will immerse themselves in the local culture as they try to debunk or prove the unexplained stories.
Destination Truth is executive produced by Neil and Michael Mandt for their Mandt Brothers Productions.
