Former Navy SEAL, Wrestler and Minnesota Governor Hits the Road With Investigative Team; CONSPIRACY THEORY to Premiere Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

New York, NY, November 18, 2009 — He was part of dangerous missions as a Navy SEAL. He body-slammed giants in the ring as a WWE superstar. He conquered politics as governor of Minnesota. Now, Jesse Ventura is about to face his greatest challenges yet in truTV’s new series CONSPIRACY THEORY WITH JESSE VENTURA. With the help of an investigative team, Ventura will examine nefarious plots, schemes and claims. CONSPIRACY THEORY is set to premiere on truTV Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

Ventura has a reputation as a rebel and free-thinker. He’s passionate about the world of conspiracy theories, holds many non-mainstream opinions and has no qualms about questioning authority. He’ll plunge viewers into a world of secret meetings, midnight surveillance, shifty characters and dark forces.

CONSPIRACY THEORY puts Ventura on the road with investigative producers June Sarpong and Alex Piper and executive producer Michael Braverman. They’re on a mission to examine possible conspiracies surrounding secret societies, global warming, alleged 9/11 cover-ups, a research center in Alaska that could be a secret government weapon and apocalyptic prophecies, to name a few. They talk to experts, eyewitnesses and examine available evidence.

“This is my personal journey to prove that there is more to these stories than you know about,” Ventura said. “We have credible sources stating their beliefs, and we look into those theories, but ultimately, you will have to be the judge.”

CONSPIRACY THEORY is executive-produced by Ventura, A. Smith & Co.'s Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Frank Sinton, and B2 Entertainment's Michael Braverman and Barry Bloom. For truTV, Robyn Hutt is the executive in charge of production, while Jon Crowley serves as executive producer.
