HISTORY recently announced the nonfiction series “The UnXplained,” hosted and executive produced by Shatner. From mysterious structures such as Florida’s Coral Castle, and “evil” places as Japan’s “Suicide Forest,” to extraterrestrial sightings and bizarre rituals, the eight-episode, one-hour series will explore subjects that have mystified mankind for centuries. “The UnXplained” is produced for HISTORY by Prometheus Entertainment.

HISTORY’s hit series “Ancient Aliens” explores the theory that extraterrestrials have been visiting the Earth for millions of years. From the age of the dinosaurs to ancient Egypt, and from visitations by gods and deities in South America to sightings of unexplained objects around the world, each episode of the series gives thought-provoking consideration to the questions, first-hand accounts and grounded theories surrounding the age-old debate: did extraterrestrial beings really help to shape human history? “Ancient Aliens” is produced by Prometheus Entertainment.

“Project Blue Book,” HISTORY’s hit drama series from Academy Award and Golden Globe®-winner Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, Contact) and A+E Studios, is based on the true, Top Secret investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952-1969. The series is inspired by the personal experiences of Dr. J. Allen Hynek, a brilliant college professor recruited by the U.S. Air Force to spearhead this clandestine operation (Project Blue Book) that researched thousands of cases, over 700 of which remain unsolved to this day.
