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 Bigfoot 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.
