Jesse Ventura is Back on the Case in truTV’s Hit Series Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura
NEW YORK, Sept. 27 /– Last year, Jesse Ventura hit the road to uncover plots and schemes of the powerful. Now he’s back for a new set of in-depth, edgy investigations in the second season of truTV’s hit series CONSPIRACY THEORY WITH JESSE VENTURA, premiering Friday, Oct. 15, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
Ventura has taken on some of the most dangerous missions in the world as a Navy Seal. He’s body-slammed human giants in the ring as a WWE superstar. He even conquered the political machine as governor of Minnesota. Ventura, who has a reputation as a rebel and free-thinker, is passionate about discovering the truth. Following up on CONSPIRACY THEORY’s dynamic first season, Ventura will once again plunge viewers into a world of secret meetings, midnight surveillance, shifty characters and dark forces.
This season, CONSPIRACY THEORY WITH JESSE VENTURA will set out to examine such topics as the Kennedy assassination, the Plum Island Research Center off Long Island, a secret billionaire’s club with the power to manipulate markets, government internment camps and the granddaddy secret of them all, Area 51. Throughout his investigations, Ventura makes it his mission to ask questions and discover the truth, no matter where it leads. He is not about to take answers at face value without solid evidence, especially if those responses come from the very people he’s investigating.
CONSPIRACY THEORY WITH JESSE VENTURA premiered in December 2009 with more than 1.6 million viewers, breaking the record for truTV’s largest audience for a new series launch at the time. The series is executive-produced by Ventura; A. Smith & Co.’s Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Frank Sinton; B2 Entertainment’s Michael Braverman and Barry Bloom; and Burt Kearns. For truTV, Robyn Hutt is the executive in charge of production, and Jon Crowley serves as executive producer.
