Travel Channel has greenlit production on the new series “Finding Beasts,” starring wildlife expert and filmmaker, Casey Anderson. Anderson’s mission is to track down and document evidence of animals so large, or unusual, that they are thought to exist only in folklore or to be extinct. Employing the latest technologies and his lifetime of wildlife experience, Anderson will travel to remote corners of the earth to find the elusive creatures. During his journeys, he will hear firsthand accounts, and gather information from sightings, that could lead to face-to-face encounters with these animals. Production on the eight hour-long episodes begins this month, with the series slated to premiere in August. Anderson first gained acclaim with Travel Channel viewers when he served as Josh Gates’ tracker in “Expedition Unknown: Hunt for the Yeti” in 2016.
“‘Finding Beasts’ is the kind of series that will either awaken or renew the spirit of adventure and discovery in all us,” said Courtney White, senior vice president, programming, Travel Channel, Food Network and Cooking Channel. “Casey’s pursuit of extraordinary animals in untamed and untouched locations is exactly what many of us have dreamed of doing our entire lives.”
