HISTORY’s groundbreaking non-fiction series “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation™” will expose new evidence on UFOs, what they may reveal about our skies, and the potential threat they pose to U.S. National Security
Luis Elizondo is a former special agent in-charge and director of the Pentagon’s secret UFO program, the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). Now, as a part of HISTORY’s limited non-fiction series “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation™,” he is speaking out in depth for the first time alongside Tom DeLonge, (Co-founder and President of To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science) and other former high-ranking government officials to expose a series of startling encounters and embark on fascinating new investigations that are urging the public to ask questions and look for answers.
In December of 2017, The New York Times published a stunning front-page exposé about the Pentagon’s mysterious UFO program, AATIP. Featuring an interview with Elizondo, who confirmed the existence of the hidden government program, the controversial story was the focus of worldwide attention. Previously run by Elizondo, AATIP was created to research and investigate Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) including numerous videos of reported encounters, three of which were released to a shocked public in 2017. Elizondo resigned after expressing to the government that these UAPs could pose a major threat to our national security and not enough was being done to deal with them or address our potential vulnerabilities.
Through HISTORY’s groundbreaking new six-part, one-hour limited series “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation™,” Elizondo and a trustworthy, connected team of investigators including individuals such as Christopher Mellon, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and Intelligence, will break boundaries and perceived government taboo by disclosing information about efforts being made to change government policy surrounding these phenomena, as well as produce tangible evidence to build the most indisputable case for the existence and threat of UFOs ever assembled. This is not a UFO hunting show, but a series that HISTORY hopes will provoke a cultural conversation about unexplained phenomena and allow viewers to ultimately draw their own conclusions.
