Actor, comedian and retired Marine, Rob Riggle is taking on a new mission – travelling the globe to unearth some of the greatest legends and mysteries of all time. The funnyman is embarking on a thrilling adventure to see everything the world has to offer, one mystery at a time, in Discovery’s new series Rob Riggle: Global Investigator launching next month.
Rob Riggle (Saturday Night Live, Step Brothers, The Hangover) developed an explorer’s spirit at an early age, captivated by incredible myths and legends from far off places he could only imagine. Now, he’s using his self-proclaimed “extensive knowledge of everything” to explore a mystifying legend that takes him on an epic adventure around the world each week. In his quest for answers to humanity’s biggest questions, Rob teams up with experts and scholars who help him use history, archaeology, science and more to uncover the truth. He also invites people who don’t think he’s up to the challenge to accompany him, eventually proving them wrong. Relying on his mental toughness and self-taught high-performance karate, Rob takes on some of the biggest challenges and most daring adventures he’s ever faced.
In Rob Riggle: Global Investigator, the actor’s adventures take him near and far – from travelling to Scotland in search of The Holy Grail to diving in Greece for the lost city of Atlantis and jetting off to Key West, Florida to look for a pirate’s hidden treasure. Fearless in the pursuit of adventure, Rob puts new skills to the test, samples new delicacies and meets new people as he travels the globe investigating one epic mystery at a time.
Rob Riggle: Global Investigator airs during Mystery Month on Discovery Channel which starts 1 May and features titles that are dedicated to unmasking the truth behind some of the world’s most enduring mysteries.
