News of the show was first reported in November of last year, with Spike TV teaming up with international insurance market Lloyd's of London.

Spike TV president Tim Duffy said of the show: "If this series idea had come in without that Lloyd's of London mark attached to it, I don't think we would have taken it seriously, but [$10 million is] no small chunk of change.

"What it signified to us was an opportunity to attract the best scientists, zoologists, trackers and Bigfoot hunters in the world in an attempt to prove or disprove its existence."

TV Guide reports that Cain will be "expedition leader" on the series, which will air on Spike TV.

Cain is best known for starring on Lois & Clarke, as well as hosting Ripley's Believe it or Not.

He currently stars on VH1's new drama Hit the Floor opposite Kimberly Elise.

10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty is set to premiere in January 2014 in the US.
