HISTORY®’s highly anticipated top-secret drama series from Academy Award®-winning executive producer Robert Zemeckis (1994, Best Director, Forrest Gump; also known for the Back to the Future franchise and Contact) comes home when Project Blue Book: Season 1 arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital) and DVD April 9 from Lionsgate. This new series is based on true top-secret investigations into unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and stars Aidan Gillen and Michael Malarkey, along with Neal McDonough, Michael Harney, Laura Mennell, and Ksenia Solo. Hailed as one of “the 10 most anticipated new shows of 2019” (Dana Feldman, Forbes), the Project Blue Book: Season 1 Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.99 and $24.98, respectively.
From Academy Award® winner Robert Zemeckis, Project Blue Book is inspired by the real-life experiences of Dr. J. Allen Hynek (Aidan Gillen). A brilliant college professor, Hynek is recruited by the U.S. Air Force to spearhead a clandestine operation, code-named Project Blue Book, which investigates UFO sightings and alleged extraterrestrial encounters. Each episode draws from those actual case files, blending UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history. Throughout the season, documented occurrences will be explored, including the Gorman Dogfight of Fargo, North Dakota; the Flatwoods Monster incident of Flatwoods, West Virginia; and the Lubbock Lights of Lubbock, Texas, as well as many others. Project Blue Book ultimately investigated more than 12,000 UFO cases, over 700 of which remain unsolved to this day. By delving into the origins of fake news, espionage, and government cover-ups, Project Blue Book: Season 1 straddles the world of science and the exploration of the unknown, exposing an incredible mystery that continues to persist.
