TruTV Books Trio of A. Smith & CO. Series
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Public health inspectors in Rhode Island, the world's largest biker bar in South Dakota and former wrestler/politician Jesse Ventura are all set to be the focus of new series on truTV in the coming weeks.

All three shows come from A. Smith & Co. with the company's Arthur Smith and Kent Weed among the executive producers.

First up is "Surprise Inspection," a two-part special airing this Saturday at 10:00/9:00c. The project, which will air as back-to-back half-hour episodes, follows a team of Providence inspectors as they "shine their flashlights into the darkest corners of some of the city's dirtiest places, including restaurants, hotels, convenience stores, gas stations, stadium concession stands, public swimming pools and health clubs."

Then on Tuesday, November 10 at 10:00/9:00c look for "Full Throttle Saloon." The four-part series gives an inside look at Michael Ballard's biker bar which is only open two weeks each year during the infamous Sturgis Biker Rally. The indoor/outdoor bar has "two large stages, its own campground and cabins, a burn-out area, a tattoo parlor and a sprawling dance floor."

Also on tap is "Conspiracy Theory With Jesse Ventura," due on Wednesday, December 2 at 10:00/9:00c. The seven-episode series features Ventura as he "sets out to uncover the truth behind the most compelling modern day conspiracy theories."

And finally, truTV will also roll out new seasons of "Most Daring" and "Operation Repo" on Wednesday, November 4 at 9:00/8:00c and Monday, November 9 at 10:00/9:00c, respectively.
