Digging Deeper  

Executive produced by Academy Award and Golden Globe® winner Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, Contact), HISTORY’s upcoming new drama series Project Blue Book 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 to 1969.  It started in 1952, and it was the third study of its kind (the first two were projects Sign (1947) and Grudge (1949)).  A termination order was given for the study in December 1969, and all activity under its auspices ceased in January 1970.

In Project Blue Book, Dr. J. Allen Hynek (Aidan Gillen), a brilliant yet underappreciated college professor, is recruited by the U.S. Air Force to spearhead a clandestine operation called Project Blue Book.  Along with his partner, the debonair Air Force Captain Michael Quinn (Michael Malarkey), he is summoned to investigate UFO sightings around the country and use science to discover what really happened; however, when some encounters cannot be explained away and cases remain open, Hynek begins to suspect that he has been duped by the government into a larger conspiracy to cover up the truth.  Set against the backdrop of the Cold War and rising Atomic Era, each episode will draw from the actual Project Blue Book case files, blending UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history.

The series will be premiere  in the United States on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at 10/9C.  The series is rated TV14 LV.
