TRAVEL CHANNEL ANNOUNCES "GREATEST MYSTERIES" FRANCHISE - A SERIES OF ONE-HOUR SPECIALS HOSTED BY DON WILDMAN

"Greatest Mysteries: Smithsonian" Special to Premiere Sunday, November 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, Followed by the Premiere of New Original Series "America Declassified" at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT

CHEVY CHASE, MD (September 24, 2013) - Travel Channel announces today a series of one-hour specials under the "Greatest Mysteries"umbrella hosted by veteran Travel Channel host Don Wildman ("Mysteries of the Museum," "Monumental Mysteries"). This series of eight one-hour specials builds on the popularity of "Mysteries at the Museum" and "Monumental Mysteries," and examines an iconic location through a unique lens of mystery and intrigue. The first special under the "Greatest Mysteries" collection is "Greatest Mysteries: Smithsonian," premiering Sunday, November 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, where history explorer and museum enthusiast Wildman investigates some of the most surprising stories behind artifacts in the national collection. The special leads into the new nine episode one-hour weekly original series, "America Declassified," premiering Sunday, November 3 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. "America Declassified" investigates the hidden side of the United States, where nothing is what it seems - including conspiracy theories, secrets, mysteries and the forbidden.

"From new theories about Dallas' grassy-knoll to stories behind the gates of Buckingham Palace and legendary tales within the Kremlin, we're taking our viewers to some of the world's most iconic destinations where mystery and intrigue abound," said Andy Singer, General Manager, Travel Channel. "This genre of programming provides a unique lens for our viewers to experience travel entertainment."

In each of the "Greatest Mysteries" specials, host Don Wildman travels the globe to some of the most iconic and carefully-guarded places in the world where he will share many of their fascinating stories. In "Greatest Mysteries: Smithsonian," Wildman explores some of the lesser-known Smithsonian museums including the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, where he spotlights the feud behind the inventors of the jetpack. Also, at the National Postal Museum, he reveals the curious story behind one of the museum's most popular exhibits - a beloved scruffy Scotch-Irish terrier mix proudly standing inside a glass case wearing a vest with over 300 medals and tags. And, at the National Museum of American History, Wildman takes a closer look at the "Bubble Boy" suit that promised its young user the incredible hope of boldly exploring where he had never gone before. Future "Greatest Mysteries" specials will visit the American Museum of Natural History, Buckingham Palace, the Holy Land, the Kremlin, the Louvre, the Vatican and the White House.

Immediately following the special, Travel Channel will premiere the new original series, "America Declassified." In each episode, investigators go on location and take a fresh look at stories and events with new evidence, unprecedented access and never-before-heard-from witnesses. The series examines sites and events using scientific methods, forensics and state-of-the-art surveillance technology to pry the lid off these explosive stories. Heading some of the investigations are: Mike Baker, Former CIA Officer and Intelligence, Security and Counterterrorism Expert; Ben McGee, Geoscientist and radiological engineering consultant; and investigative reporter Michele McPhee. Additionally, leading experts and conspiracy theorists weigh in with true insight into what may (or may not) be going on behind the barbed wire and blacked-out windows. Locals and eyewitnesses also will share their accounts of strange sightings, weird goings-on and unexplained phenomena.

Stories that have recently been in the headlines and are explored in the series include the National Security Agency's (NSA) super spy center in Utah as well as the California beach town where most-wanted mobster Whitey Bulger spent 15 sunny years hiding in plain sight. The show also performs unprecedented ballistics tests in Dallas' Dealey Plaza for the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, and searches for a rumored doomsday bunker under a major U.S. airport.

The "Greatest Mysteries" specials are produced by Optomen Productions, LLC. for Travel Channel. For Optomen, executive producers are Nicola Moody and Dominic Stobart. Co-executive producer is Tim McConville and series producer is Ginny Somma. For Travel Channel, executive producer is David E. Gerber.
