The Scott Helmer Show • ORIGINAL AIR DATE: Sunday, March 12, 2017

GUEST: Peter von Puttkamer - "Killing Bigfoot"    

Peter von Puttkamer, executive producer and director of Destination America's "Killing Bigfoot" joins Scott Helmer on SUNDAY, MARCH 12, 2017 to talk about the show and much more.  The first season of "Killing Bigfoot" finales March 11 at 10/9c on Destination America, following a diverse team of Bigfoot hunters – the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization (GCBRO) - as they help families that are being terrorized by the creature.

Learn More: Deep in the heart of Texas, Bobby Hamilton has been on the hunt for Bigfoot ever since encountering the monster as a child. Decades later, the world still doesn't have definitive proof of Bigfoot's existence. That's where Bobby, his friend Jim Lansdale, and their team of monster hunters, known as the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization (GCBRO), have decided to take matters into their own hands. Down south, the hunters believe a sleeker, faster and more aggressive type of Bigfoot is attacking people's homes, farm animals and pets. In the all-new series KILLING BIGFOOT, GCBRO is on a mission to help families terrorized by Bigfoot and prove once and for all that the fabled creature exists by killing one specimen - and providing a body of definitive scientific proof.

Under Bobby and Jim's leadership, the members of GCBRO come from vastly diverse backgrounds including civil engineering, IT and corporate technology, and private investigation and surveillance. The team also includes former cops, National Guard and military veterans, a medical tech, and even a coroner's "body removal specialist." GCBRO's main goal is to help those frightened by alleged recent encounters with Bigfoot, but however well-intentioned GCBRO's mission may be, their extreme objective to kill even one Bigfoot puts them at odds with many in the crypto-zoological community who do not want to see one dead.
