Jesse Ventura to host reality show

truTV series investigates conspiracy theories

Jack of all trades Jesse Ventura is about to add another specialty to his resume — reality-show host.

The former Navy SEAL, professional wrestler, small-town mayor, actor and governor of Minnesota has struck a deal with truTV to topline a skein that will find him investigating the validity of various conspiracy theories.

The pilot, from A. Smith & Co. Productions (“Hell’s Kitchen”), begins shooting in October. It will feature Ventura — who also will take a producing credit — traveling to various locales to hear out the claims of skeptics and adherents to a particular conspiracy theory, after which he’ll render a verdict on the alleged phenomenon’s veracity.
