Crazy myth or crazy monster? For hundreds of years, people across North America have claimed they've spotted the mysterious and unexplainable creature known as Bigfoot, or Sasquatch. Cut to 2011 and the new six-part series FINDING BIGFOOT, where cameras are set to follow a team of Bigfoot researchers in a cross-continent expedition to dissolve the myth and locate the elusive beast. The team tries to prove that this pedaled creature actually exists. And as the myth grows, so does the passion for validating its existence once and for all!
On FINDING BIGFOOT, a four-person team from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) -- the leading scientific research organization exploring the Bigfoot/Sasquatch mystery -- investigates supposed Sasquatch sightings by interviewing locals, examining evidence and infiltrating the woodlands and forests in places where Bigfoot has been reported. The team listens to harrowing tales of run-ins with Bigf
oot before generating reconstructions of the encounters to judge their plausibility or dismiss them as hoaxes. Then, outfitted with the latest technology, including night-vision and infrared cameras, the team sets out on exhilarating and eerie investigations where any broken branch or peculiar noise could mean a Sasquatch is lurking nearby. The BFRO team is comprised of a crab fisherman (James 'Bobo' Fay), a science educator (Cliff Barackman), the BFRO president (Matt Moneymaker) and a skeptical scientist (Ranae Holland). Each teammate has varying experiences with Bigfoot and differing beliefs about the existence of this enigma.
