London-based Atlantic has been commissioned to produce the hour-long film which follows adventurer Gerry Moffatt as he searches for the truth behind the monster myth.

Moffatt journeys from the frozen valleys of the high Himalayas to the rugged wilderness of North America to find never-before-seen evidence, talk to eyewitnesses, and discover what the Sherpa say are the Yeti’s hunting ground.

The film will premiere on April 4 during National Geographic’s Expedition Week, which runs from April 3 to 9.

Anthony Geffen, CEO and executive producer, Atlantic Productions said: “This film is indicative of Atlantic being at the vanguard of high-quality, science-based factual programming, which is both engaging and informative for international audiences.”

Hunt for the Abominable Snowman was commissioned by Steve Burns and Shannon Malone at National Geographic Channel. The film is directed by Dan Oliver, and executive produced by Geffen and by Madeleine Carter for National Geographic Channel.
