Adventure cameraman Mungo will lead audiences on a journey to explore myth and legends in Animal Planet’s new series Expedition Mungo.

Throughout his years of travels, Mungo has heard stories of mythical creatures from the locals he has encountered. These stories have been passed down for generations, and now he and a team  will journey to some of the most remote areas of the globe to separate fact from fiction.

On each expedition, Mungo meets with eye witnesses while searching for clues and evidence in hopes of capturing these myths and legends on camera, including an unidentified dragon-like reptile terrorizing a village in Borneo; a shape-shifting creature that locals in the savanna in Namibia believe to be linked to witchcraft; and a massive lizard in Liberia that resembles an extinct dinosaur.

Expedition Mungo is produced by Blast! Film for Animal Planet. For Blast! Films, Edmund Coulthard and Jon Stephens are executive producers, and Craig Blackhurst is series producer. For Animal Planet, Keith Hoffman is executive producer and Sarah Russell serves as producer. The series was developed by Kurt Tondorf, senior vice president and head of development for Animal Planet and Science Channel.

Expedition Mungo airs May 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
