Animal Planet features a Bigfoot documentary-drama series titled "Finding Bigfoot," which began airing in 2011. The show follows a team of investigators from the Bigfoot Field Research Organization as they search mainly throughout North America for evidence of the cryptid ape-like creature.
The "Finding Bigfoot" team consists of Ranae Holland, the team's skeptic; James Fay, the field caller; Cliff Barackman, the team's analyst; and Matt Monkeymaker, the founder and president of the Bigfoot Field Research Organization. They have also explored other countries such as Australia, Brazil, Vietnam and China in search of other Bigfoot-type creatures. The popularity of "Finding Bigfoot" caused it to spawn multiple spin-off programs.
