IS YOUR HOUSE HIDING A HORROR STORY?
ANIMAL PLANET LAUNCHES A NEW SEASON OF "INFESTED!" ON DECEMBER 30, AT 9 PM ET/PT
-- If You Think Your Four Walls Protect You From the Creepy-Crawly World Outside, Think Again...
Roaches! Rats! And bats! Oh my! Is your skin crawling? It will when the new season of INFESTED!
premieres Friday, December 30, at 9 PM ET/PT with seven hour-long episodes and two "best-of" episodes.
INFESTED! unearths the real-life horror stories of ordinary people plagued by extraordinary infestations inside
We're not talking about the occasional bug slipping through a crack in your wall - it's a full-on war for
the victims whose nightmares are relived this season. Every one of these victims has suffered either physical
harm or psychological trauma. Some of them may never feel safe and sound again. This season, get up close and
personal with nature's nastiest squatters, including spiders, opossums, bedbugs, scorpions, bats and rats - all of
which can spill out from the tiniest orifices and create a living terror.
In the premiere episode of INFESTED!, a young family moves into a new home in Kentucky only to
discover a protected species of bat that cannot be disturbed. Then, a Pennsylvania household combats a deluge
of cockroaches and learns that these bugs crawled their way from the neighbor's house. Across the country in
California, a single mom battles the growing number of filthy rodents raging a riot through her home. Future
episodes become deadly when a Tennessee father fights for his life after he's bitten by brown recluse spiders.
Each spine-tingling story is enhanced by macro-lens photography and stunning CGI recreations, which
reveal how these critters strip humans of the four walls that protect them from the outside world. INFESTED! is
more than enough to make everyone shiver and check twice under the bed.
