Former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge will executive produce History’s new non-fiction limited series “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation,” which promises to reveal new evidence, footage and eyewitness interviews about a once-hidden government organization devoted to investigating UFOs.
The six-part hourlong series, premiering in May, follows a Pentagon program called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which explored what the program referred to as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP). The series features interviews with former military intelligence official and head of AATIP Luis Elizondo, who served as a primary source when the program’s existence was exposed by The New York Times in 2017.
After resigning from the program, Elizondo joined DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, which combines science, aerospace and entertainment to research and engineer scientific phenomena. Together, Elizondo and DeLonge and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and Intelligence Chris Mellon will speak out about UAP encounters and new investigations shedding light on information about which the public has long been kept in the dark.
“With this show, the real conversation can finally begin. I’m thankful to History for giving the To The Stars Academy team of world-class scientists, engineers and intelligence experts the opportunity to tell the story in a comprehensive and compelling way,” DeLonge said. “I think everyone that watches the show will walk away with questions answered and a feeling of, ‘Wow, I get it now.'”
“This is not a UFO hunting show, but a series that will hopefully provoke a cultural conversation about unexplained phenomena and allow our viewers to ultimately draw their own conclusions,” said Eli Lehrer, History’s executive vice president and head of programming. “Tom’s curiosity and passion for this subject matter, combined with his team, are the perfect partners to deliver this breakthrough series.”
Also involved in the series are Steve Justice, retired Program Director for Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martin’s Skunkworks and the Aerospace Division Director for To The Stars Academy; Hal Puthoff, CIA researcher, quantum physicist; and Vice President of Science and Technology at To The Stars Academy; and Jim Semivan, retired CIA senior intelligence service member and vice president of operations at To The Stars Academy.
Steve Ascher, Kristy Sabat and Anthony Lappé join DeLonge to executive produce on behalf of A+E Originals, with Mike Stiller serving as executive producer for History.
