DESCRIPTION: (from Destination America's press release, July 2014) Across the American wilderness, millions of acres of uncharted swamplands and underground lairs are rumored to be inhabited by unidentified monsters. Generations of speculation have piqued the curiosity of nearby communities and monster enthusiasts alike, but none have come close to solving the mystery of what these elusive creatures are... until now. Destination America hunts for the truth in the new three-part series SWAMP MONSTERS, premiering Friday, August 22 at 9/8c, followed by back-to-back premiere episodes of the new six-part series MONSTERS UNDERGROUND at 10/9c and 10:30/9:30c. First, deep in the heart of Louisiana's bayou, upwards of 100 people go missing each year and, if you ask locals, many will say SWAMP MONSTERS got 'em. Elliot Guidry and his Cajun crew have made it their mission to track down, identify, and eliminate the threat posed by legendary, deadly monsters like the Cajun werewolf. Then in MONSTERS UNDERGROUND, Bill Brock and his team are hell-bent on proving the existence of monsters living beneath the earth's surface. During their underground investigations, one wrong move could turn the cave into their tomb. But the most dangerous threat of all is the pitch-black darkness and the risk of coming face to face with a cave creature - such as the shape-shifting Aswang or the bat-like Olitiau - and not seeing it until it's too late.
