Looking to end the 100-year old search for the mythical creature, Animal Planet is joining forces with Bigfoot researchers on a new series Finding Bigfoot.

As highlighted in Animal Planet’s upfront presentation and airing on June 5 at 10 pm (ET/PT), the Ping Pong Productions six-part series follows a team of Bigfoot researchers in their cross-country expedition to locate the beast.

The four-person team from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) goes to locations of alleged Sasquatch sightings to investigate with reconstructions and the latest technology to determine whether they were real or not.

The BFRO team is made up of a former roadie, a science teacher, the BFRO president and a skeptical scientist.

Keith Hoffman is the executive producer for Animal Planet, Brad Kuhlman and Casey Brumels are the executive producers for Ping Pong Productions and Marc Etkind is VP of development for Animal Planet.
