“"We're excited to have Dodge join Jesse's weekly hunt for the truth,” said Dan Riess, senior vice president, Turner Entertainment Marketing and Promotions. “This is a great example of how truTV can deliver large-scale, effective marketing platforms for our partners.”
This season,WITH JESSE VENTURA will set out to examine such topics as the Kennedy assassination, the Plum Island Research Center off Long Island, an alleged secret billionaire’s club with the power to manipulate markets, theories about government internment camps and the granddaddy secret of them all, Area 51. Throughout his investigations, Ventura makes it his mission to ask questions and discover the truth, no matter where it leads. He is not about to take answers at face value without solid evidence, especially if those responses come from the very people he’s investigating.

The series is executive-produced by Ventura; A. Smith & Co.’s Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Frank Sinton; B2 Entertainment’s Michael Braverman and Barry Bloom; and Burt Kearns.
