Ventura to be host of TruTV mystery show
- September 29, 2008 - 9:40 PM
Jesse Ventura may or may not have a "judge" show in his future, but one thing's for sure: He's definitely going to be searching for justice.
The former governor will host a new program for TruTV (formerly Court TV) in which he'll travel the country, exploring modern-day conspiracies and getting input from believers and skeptics.
"I've been a mayor; I've been a governor. Now I get to be a detective and seek the truth," he said in a news release.
Filming starts in October and is being produced by A. Smith & Co., which is also responsible for "Hell's Kitchen" and "Trading Spaces." A premiere date has not been announced.
Ventura is also reportedly in talks to do a syndicated "Judge Judy"-type program.
