PREMIERE: UFO Series PROJECT BLUE BOOK With Aidan Gillen & Neal McDonough Debuts on History Channel

Project Blue Book.

Between 1952 and 1969, the US Air Force investigated over 12,000 reported sightings of UFOs.

This top-secret government program was codenamed Project Blue Book.

UFOs? The U.S. Air Force investigated thousands of cases in the 1950s and 1960s through a top secret division called Project Blue Book. Each episode of the 10-episode History series from Robert Zemeckis and his creative team pulls from actual files and blends UFO theories with historical events that were researched by a team led by astrophysicist Dr. J. Allen Hynek.

The Air Force wants to keep the sightings under wraps: Neal McDonough is General James Harding and Michael Malarkey is Capt. Michael Quinn.

Project Blue Book filmed all over metro Vancouver last Winter and Spring with vintage cars on set: from Riverview’s Crease Clinic to University of British Columbia campus to Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.


Project Blue Book premieres Tuesday, January 8th, at 10 p.m. on History Channel.
