"The Great American Manhunt" (TV show) is a reality series on National Geographic Channel that poses the question: Is it possible to identify living individuals simply through clues on and inside their bodies? For forensic detectives and scientists, it's the ultimate test of their skills. Each week on "The Great American Manhunt," those skills are challenged as never before. In each episode, a charismatic team of experts employs the very latest techniques and technology in forensic science — as well as a bit of intuition and some old fashioned clue busting abilities — to unravel the complex mystery put before them.

"The Great American Manhunt" throws down the gauntlet to forensic anthropologist Dr. Natalie Shirley, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Dan Shapiro and veteran police officer Bill Erfurth. Together, they are tasked with identifying a mystery target with an exceptional life and accomplishments. With no access to national databases, the team is limited to using every forensic test available to interrogate the anatomy, the minds and the clothes to positively ID their target and work out their exceptional achievement. The mystery targets come in all shapes and sizes but they all have something in common — an occupation or event that has left a unique imprint on their body.

"The Great American Manhunt" is produced by Wide-Eyed Entertainment (WEE). The series is executive produced by Kathleen Cromley for National Geographic Channel; executive vice president of programming is Michael Cascio. The show is produced by Paul O'Connor and Dan Gold, line produced by Charlotte Wheaton and exec produced by David McNab for WEE.
