Pioneer Productions is back on the hunt for UFOs in its latest extra-terrestrial commission from Nat Geo.

National Geographic Channels International (NGCI) ordered 8 x 60-minute Invasion Earth from the Tinopolis Group-owned indie behind Secrets Of Britain and Britain’s Most Extreme Weather.

The specialist factual documentary series investigates some of the world’s most intriguing UFO sightings, featuring mysterious events in countries from Peru to Australia.

The commission comes on the back of UFO Europe: The Untold Stories, which Pioneer produced for Nat Geo last year, garnering audiences of more than 60,000.

Pioneer Productions managing director Kirstie McLure said: “That show hit their demo and they came back and said they wanted stories from all over the world.”

She added that to create the series, Pioneer has used its background as a science producer and skills developed on forensic films.

The series was commissioned by executive vice-president and head of international content at NGCI Hamish Mykura and commissioning editor Ed Sayer. It will be executive produced by McLure and Pioneer’s Robert Strange.

Sayer said it was important to approach the series in a serious way and ensure it didn’t feature “ludicrous” sightings. “UFOs have been around for time immemorial but what makes this different is that the stories that it’s centred on have all been subject to official investigation, which means there’s some plausibility to these sightings,” he added.

The show will launch in the autumn across 171 territories, but Sayer said the channels in each country will have some flexibility over which episodes they prioritise.
