SCI FI Channel’s Mark Stern, EVP, Original Programming, recently announced a new alternative reality series for the Channel. From Neil and Michael Mandt, ‘Destination Truth’ takes us on one man’s search for the truth in a reality show that investigates stories of the unexplained across the globe. The show, hosted by Josh Gates, is a credible investigation of these stories with a first-person style that often alternates between moments of dramatic tension and humor.
Every week, Josh visits a different destination around the world that is home to notorious supernatural and mysterious stories, such as the Fire Worm of Mongolia or the Chupacabra of Chile. He attempts to get to the truth by talking to witnesses and experts while immersing himself in situations that, while bizarre, are real and relatable. No information has been announced yet on when the new show will air.
