truTV Picks Up A New Show Featuring Jesse Ventura!

truTV issued a press release announcing that former Minnesota Governor and
WWE Hall of Famer Jesse Ventura will be hosting the series "Conspiracy
Theory with Jesse Ventura" which is scheduled to debut in late 2009. Seven
episodes were ordered for now to see how successful the series will be. "We
received a very positive response when we showed a preview of ‘Conspiracy
Theory with Jesse Ventura’ at this year’s advertising upfront presentation,
so it’s very exciting to be able to greenlight it for a full series," said
Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager of truTV/IN
SESSION. The preview of the show reads, "He’s undertaken some of the most
dangerous missions in the world as a Navy SEAL. He’s body-slammed giants in
the wrestling ring as a WWE superstar. He’s even conquered politics as the
governor of Minnesota. Now, Jesse Ventura is about to face his greatest
challenge yet: uncovering the most compelling plots and schemes."
