Ventura conspiracy-theory show to premiere in fall
St. Paul, Minn. (AP) — Jesse Ventura is returning to television this fall with a new cable show built around conspiracy theories.
Minnesota's seldom seen former governor will host "Conspiracy Theories with Jesse Ventura" on cable's truTV, a Turner Broadcasting System channel.
A truTV news release issued Monday says the channel has ordered seven episodes. The first is due to air in late fall.
The ex-wrestler left office after a single term. He splits his time between Minnesota and Mexico, and he flirted with a run for U.S. Senate last year.
Ventura hosted an MSNBC show in 2003 that was canceled after a two-month run.
The new show suits his penchant for expressing alternative theories, including on the John F. Kennedy assassination and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
