SPIKE TV TEAMS WITH LLOYD'S OF LONDON TO OFFER A TEN MILLION DOLLAR PRIZE TO PROVE BIGFOOT EXISTS

New Competitive Reality Show Features Various Teams of Explorers on a Quest to Answer the Question of Whether Bigfoot Truly Lives

New York, NY - October 25, 2012 - Spike TV is raising the stakes in the endless quest to discover the truth about the legendary creature known as Bigfoot, the seemingly mythical being that roams forests of the world, avoiding mankind. The network is announcing a new one-hour reality show, "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty," featuring ambitious teams of explorers on a brazen exhibition to unearth real evidence of Bigfoot's existence. The $10 million in cash, underwritten by Lloyd's of London, would be the largest cash prize in television history.

"10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" is produced by Charlie Corwin's Original Media ("Swamp People," "Ink Master") with Corwin, Michael Riley and Emmy(R) Award-winner Jon Kroll ("The Amazing Race," "Big Brother") as Executive Producers. Spike TV has ordered 10 one-hour episodes.

The network has already begun casting contestants for "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty," which will feature scientists, zoologists, seasoned trackers, and actual Bigfoot hunters who all believe in the infamous creature's existence. The teams will be faced with the daunting task of proving to a group of experts that Bigfoot, the hairy ape-like sasquatch, exists with the irrefutable evidence. The winner will be the first team to secure proof - and win the unprecedented $10 million bounty.

Each episode will follow the different teams as they ply their extensive research and presumed knowledge of the legendary creature, often battling nature's inhospitable conditions.

The series will be shot in various locations throughout the country.

Sharon Levy is Spike TV's Executive Vice President, Original Series, Tim Duffy is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike TV, and Chris Rantamaki and Justin Lacob serve as the network's Executives in Charge of Production.

Show updates will become available at bigfoot.spike.com.
