"Brad Meltzer's Decoded" Examines History Hidden in Plain Sight When Hit Series Returns for 2nd Season in 4th Quarter 2011

Los Angeles, CA, July 27, 2011 - Every now and then a researcher will discover a historical enigma, an unproven rumor, a story with a puzzling outcome. Such encounters are an irresistible challenge for Brad Meltzer, the #1 New York Times best-selling author. He unraveled many of them thread-by-thread in last year's 10-part hit series, BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED.

But there are many more secrets that remain unsolved, and Meltzer will tackle some of the most compelling ones when HISTORY brings BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED back for a 2nd season, airing in 4th Quarter 2011.

Joining Brad are - Buddy Levy, a professor and journalist who assumes there is always more than meets the eye; Christine McKinley, a mechanical engineer who believes only what can be proved; and Scott Rolle, a trial lawyer who is skeptical by nature. Together they will examine the clues, rumors and conspiracy theories behind some of society's most perplexing mysteries.

In the new season, the Decoded team will examine unanswered questions surrounding such topics as the Declaration of Independence, Ft. Knox, Billy the Kid, the Vatican, and an ancient relic from the Crucifixion. Their sleuthing will lead them across the country and, for the first time, overseas.

Season one of BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED averaged 1.6 million total viewers and improved HISTORYs Thursday 10-11 p.m. time period by 13% in Adults 25-54.

Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Inner Circle and seven other thrillers, as well as the non-fiction Heroes For My Son and the acclaimed comic book Justice League of America. Renowned for the depth and accuracy of his research, Meltzer was part of the Department of Homeland Security's Red Cell program, helping to explore new ways that terrorists may attack the U.S.

BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED is produced for HISTORY by Go Go Luckey and Berman/Braun. Executive Producers for Go Go Luckey are Gary and Julie Auerbach. Executive Producers for Berman/Braun are Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein. Russ McCarroll is Executive Producer for HISTORY.
