"With the popularity of shows like Finding Bigfoot and a continued distrust of our nation's government, banks, universities and other institutions, we feel a show like this is in step with the times," said FSN Vice President of Programming Jen Murphy. "DSC!DS! speaks to that in a way that is perfect for our viewers."
Span talked about the show's inspiration.
"Well, it all started when I was watching Jurassic Park one day, and it really made me think and wonder. What if Jurassic Park could happen? And if it could, why isn't the government doing anything about it? I don't wanna get eaten up on the can, that's for sure."
Denard Span's CONSPIRACY! with Denard Span!, which begins airing in October, follows the former Twin and current Washington National as he attempts to unravel some of the greatest mysteries of our time, along with a team of adventurers that includes former FSN reporter Robby Incmikowski, the comedian Sinbad, and Fox 9 weatherman Keith Marler. Span says that he and his team will shy away from the usual conspiracy fare.
"We don't need to go over who shot J.R. or where babies come from, because those arguments are pretty much 'agree to disagree' type things. We're going after the stuff where you sit and wonder, whoa, wait a minute, you know?"
Some of the topics covered in the inaugural season include:
- Thunder: angels bowling or something more sinister?
- Tony Fiore's 10-win season in 2002.
- Why babies always fall for that peek-a-boo bullshit but some don't
- In Monopoly, are you supposed to put money in the middle for Free Parking? How come?
- Chinese food
- Can you eat Vicks Vap-o-Rub
- Both World Wars
- That first "r" in February
- Who enforces NO PEPPER signs
