Actor Rob Riggle is on a Mission to Solve the World’s Greatest Mysteries in an All-New Discovery Series

By: Discovery

The Holy Grail, the lost city of Atlantis, hidden pirates’ treasure… Riggle is set to take on some of his biggest challenges and most daring adventures.

January 16, 2020

Actor, comedian, and retired Marine, Rob Riggle is taking on a new mission — traveling the globe to unearth some of the world’s greatest legends and mysteries. In his quest for answers to humanity’s biggest questions, Riggle teams up with experts and scholars that help him use history, archaeology, science, and more to uncover the truth. He’ll embark on thrilling adventures, seeing everything the world has to offer one mystery at a time in the all-new series, ROB RIGGLE: GLOBAL INVESTIGATOR, premiering Sunday, Mar. 8 at 10p ET on Discovery.

Inspired by his grandfather, Riggle developed an explorer’s spirit at an early age, captivated by incredible myths and legends from far off places he could only imagine. Now, Riggle will use his self-proclaimed “extensive knowledge of everything” to explore a mystifying legend that takes him on an epic adventure around the world each week. He’ll meet local guides to help him along the way and invite 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, Riggle will take on some of the biggest challenges and most daring adventures he’s ever faced.

Riggle’s adventures will take him near and far — from traveling to Scotland in search of The Holy Grail to diving in Greece for the lost city of Atlantis, and jetting off to Key West to look for a pirate’s hidden treasure. Fearless in the pursuit of adventure, Riggle will put new skills to the test, try new delicacies and meet new people as he travels the globe investigating one epic mystery at a time.

Watch the season premiere of ROB RIGGLE: GLOBAL INVESTIGATOR Sunday, Mar. 8 at 10p ET only on Discovery and Discovery Go. For updates follow along on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #GlobalInvestigator.
