Project Blue Book the series...

by Susan Leighton

Project Blue Book asks the question do you believe in UFOs? If not, you may start after watching this trailer from the upcoming History Channel series on the now defunct Air Force project.

Project Blue Book was created in 1952 by the Air Force to study unexplained aerial phenomenon. The program was shut down in 1969. About a decade later, Jack Webb (Dragnet creator) produced one of my favorite tv shows, Project UFO.

Also see Project Bluebook Unknowns.

This series only lasted two seasons. Each week a different case was lifted from the pages of Project Blue Book and reenacted. Of course, it was dramatizations, but at the time the effects to me were mesmerizing.

Now, the History Channel is giving us Project Blue Book the series right in time for the winter binge season. This go around instead of having the stories being told from the vantage point of the Air Force, J. Allen Hynek is our eyes and ears.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the astronomer and professor, he is known for developing the Close Encounter classification system. The most famous being the third kind or an encounter with a UFO where a humanoid is present.

Conspiracies and Contact

After viewing the trailer for this upcoming show, I canít wait to see it. Government conspiracies are alluded to, there are veiled threats, alien beings, strange symbols, crop circles and unexplained aircrafts.

This is like The X-Files of the 90s before the mythology became lost in convoluted plot points.

Aidan Gillen (The Wire, Game of Thrones) and Michael Malarkey (The Vampire Diaries) star as Hynek and his Air Force partner, Captain Michael Quinn. The pair end up exploring all of the different sightings as Hynek makes the journey from skeptic to believer.

Throw in Neal McDonough as the shadowy menacing General James Harding and you have an exciting story that combines a bit of a thriller with a paranormal element.

Here is a look at what to expect:

The show is 11 episodes long and was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia. The History Channel and A & E Studios produced the series.
