TRAVEL CHANNEL GREENLIGHTS NEW ADVENTURE QUEST SERIES 'HUNTING EVIDENCE'
NEW YORK (Jan. 23, 2018) -Travel Channel is expanding its slate of successful adventure programming with the pick-up of "Hunting Evidence," featuring explorer and biologist Pat Spain. When Spain is not in the lab, he journeys far and wide to uncover answers to fascinating unsolved riddles, historic conundrums and mythic events. Six one-hour episodes will begin airing in June 2018.
The great nephew of acclaimed writer Charles Fort, Spain has always admired his great uncle, who spent a lifetime exploring bizarre phenomena that did not make sense scientifically. With "Hunting Evidence," Spain will use his science background to solve the world's greatest enigmas. Upcoming episodes will explore the existence of vampires in New England and new evidence about London's infamous Jack the Ripper.
"Like so many iconic stories in this series, the notorious tale of Jack the Ripper has captured the world's attention for generations," said Courtney White, senior vice president, programming, Travel Channel, Food Network and Cooking Channel.
