Dean Cain is set to lead the most ambitious and extensive hunt for the ever-elusive Sasquatch in SPIKE's "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty
." Cain will host the unique competition series that features nine teams comprised of lifelong Bigfoot hunters and big game hunters as they use groundbreaking scientific technology to comb the Pacific Northwest for undisputable proof of Bigfoot's existence in hopes of taking home one of the largest cash prizes in television history. The $10 million in cash is underwritten by Lloyd's of London. Currently in production, the new one-hour reality series is set to premiere January, 2014.
An avid outdoorsman and hunter, Cain will serve as the expedition leader helping the teams of "squatchers" as they use their skills to compete for a $10 million dollar prize. Each episode will follow the different teams as they search some of the most famous Bigfoot "hotzones" in America. Utilizing a state-of-the-art mobile DNA lab, teams will ply their extensive research and presumed knowledge of the legendary creature to collect scientific samples, often battling nature's inhospitable conditions.
"10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" is produced by Charlie Corwin's Original Media ("Swamp People," "Ink Master") with Corwin, Mike Riley and Emmy® Award-winner Jon Kroll ("The Amazing Race," "Big Brother") as Executive Producers. SPIKE has ordered 8 one-hour episodes.
