Old legend will meet new modern-day technology as an elite team of skilled searchers us an advanced data algorithm and groundbreaking science and tools to analyze five decades of Bigfoot sightings and to pinpoint when and where to encounter this elusive beast. Travel Channel’s new eight-part investigative-adventure series “EXPEDITION BIGFOOT” tracks the expert team throughout their harrowing experience and pioneering endeavor.

With a unique blend of expertise, the team–including Bryce Johnson (Expedition Operations); Dr. Mireya Mayor (Primatologist); Russell Acord (Ex-Military/Survivalist); Ronny LeBlanc (Bigfoot Researcher); and Ryan “RPG” Golembeske (Bigfoot Investigator)–take a three-week sojourn to an undisclosed, remote location in a 90,000-acre swath of land in central Oregon, using the latest advanced technologies to narrow their search within the target zone. Possible nesting sites, footprints and vocalizations lead the team to a hot spot where inexplicable events occur and one of the greatest pieces of video evidence in Bigfoot history is recorded.

“Expedition Bigfoot” will premiere on the Travel Channel on Wednesday, December 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
