I just had a long talk with Doug Segal, the executive producer of a new Animal Planet series beginning in January 2009. It is a program about cryptids, and of footage of them, entitled “Lost Tapes.” The first two episodes are having a sneak preview on Halloween 2008.
Here is the PR that has slipped out:
Thursday, October 30, from 4pm – 10pm ET/PT
There’s nothing cuddly about this Animal Planet marathon! Tune in for the creepiest Howl-O-Ween yet, including a sneak peek of an all-new Animal Planet series, “Lost Tapes,” from 9-10 PM (ET/PT). Even in the modern age, reports of human encounters with mysterious and often dangerous beasts continue to surface. “Lost Tapes” is a first person, immersive experience of encounters with bizarre animals that science is reluctant to recognize – in our waters, in our woods, and in our skies – they live among us – you will believe.

Segal told me the first two episodes shown are on Bigfoot and Chupacabras.
