Laurence Fishburne is set to host History’s Greatest Mysteries for the History Channel. Join the actor as he explores the UFO crash at Roswell, the Bermuda Triangle and other fascinating events.
Laurence Fishburne will be hosting History’s Greatest Mysteries for the History Channel. According to Deadline, the actor will also be narrating a strand utilizing present day technology to explore various odd cases ranging from Roswell, John Wilkes Booth, the Bermuda Triangle, Hitler’s U-Boats and D.B. Cooper.
What makes this a truly unique series is that the episodes will be presented like two-hour movies from producers Blumhouse Television, eOne and The Content Group. The only entry that differs is the segment on the famous UFO crash of 1947 which will be a six-part mini-series.
While all the shows sound spectacular, we are particularly interested in Roswell and The Bermuda Triangle. Roswell: The First Witness focuses on Major Jesse Marcel who was the original investigator of the crash.
Ben Smith, a retired CIA operative and the former host of the Discovery Channel’s Finding Escobar’s Millions, will delve into the conspiracy surrounding this game changing event. Marcel’s family believe that he was coerced by the government into denying that he had seen a UFO.
The show will take a look at the officer’s diary which is believed to be coded. Within its contents, there may be new evidence pointing to where potential debris from the wreckage may exist.
In Bermuda Triangle: Expedition to the Abyss, a search for the remains of the famous Flight 19 will be conducted. What makes this particular case stand out, is that not only did the torpedo bombers and the men from that mission vanish without a trace, the search plane dispatched to find survivors also disappeared.
A state-of-the-art research craft, Petrel (owned by the late co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen) will be dispatched to comb the depths of the ocean to try and locate the squadron.
History’s Greatest Mysteries hosted by Laurence Fishburne will air on the History Channel sometime this summer.
