THE ONE HOUR SERIES EXPLORE THE WORLD’S MOST FASCINATING AND INEXPLICABLE MYSTERIES
New York, NY – June 13, 2019 – HISTORY will premiere the non-fiction series “The UnXplained”, presented and produced by Golden Globe® and Emmy Award® winning actor William Shatner (Star Trek, “Boston Legal”) Friday, July 19 at 10 p.m. ET. The eight hour-long anthology series will address topics that have mystified humanity for centuries, from mysterious structures and cursed ancient cities to extraterrestrial sightings and bizarre rituals.
“I am thrilled to host and produce The UnXplained from the new HISTORY series,” said Shatner. “It’s an intriguing show that will offer viewers credible answers to questions about mysterious phenomena, while also leaving other theories unexplained.”
From executive producer Kevin Burns, the creator and producer of HISTORY’s most popular series, including “Ancient Aliens” and the No. 1 of Cable’s “The Curse of Oak Island”, “The UnXplained” will explore the facts behind the world’s strangest and most bizarre mysteries. Hosted by Shatner, the series will also include contributions from leading scientists, historians, engineers and researchers, all of whom seek to shed light on how the seemingly impossible can happen.
“The UnXplained” joins HISTORY’s Friday night programming block that includes “Ancient Aliens,” one of the network’s longest-running non-fiction series that reached over 80 million total viewers throughout the day in 2018 and the series of limited non-fiction “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation,” Where former intelligence officials break boundaries and perceive government taboos by divulging information on efforts to change government policy on UFO phenomena; and the hit series “Project Blue Book,” by executive producer Robert Zemeckis and recently renewed for a second season, based on the real investigations into UFOs and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force in the 1950s and 1960s.
“The UnXplained” is produced for HISTORY by Prometheus Entertainment. Kevin Burns is the executive producer of Prometheus Entertainment. William Shatner is an executive producer. The executive producer of HISTORY is Susan Leventhal.
