Showtime released the trailer for UFO, the docu-series directed by Mark Monroe (Icarus) and Paul Crowder (Riding Giants), from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot and Glen Zipper, premiering on Sunday, August 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The four-part series explores our fascination with unidentified flying objects, and what clandestine influence the American government, lucrative private companies and the military may have in shielding the truth behind extraterrestrial phenomena to further their own agendas. the series is a co-production by Bad Robot and Zipper Bros Films.
Ignited by the bombshell New York Times story in 2017 revealing that the Pentagon had been secretly tracking UFOs for years, the series examines the history of the phenomenon through cultural and political touchpoints, including shocking testimony from eyewitnesses across the country. As the conversation grows more bizarre and reaches the mainstream by virtue of credible investigations into alien encounters, UFO confronts the most enigmatic questions of all: Why do we believe what we believe? And what is the elusive truth beyond this decades-long mystery?
