"AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION" RETURNS TO AMERICAN HEROES CHANNEL FOR FASCINATING FOURTH SEASON HOSTED BY JAMIE KALER

--All-New Season Premieres With Back-to-Back Episodes on Saturday, January 21 at 10/9c--

History as we generally know it is full of holes or half-truths, and a mother lode of juicy details have been lost, distorted, covered up or simply ignored along the way. American Heroes Channel's (AHC) hit series, AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION is back on a mission to set the record straight with an all-new season premiering Saturday, January 21 at 10/9c. Hosted by former Naval officer and comedian/actor Jamie Kaler, this season is a wake-up call about the surprising hidden facts behind the most familiar and beloved stories from our nation's and military's past, filling in the blanks, debunking the occasional myth, and exploring why we sometimes get our own history slightly, well, wrong. Examining the past with a fresh perspective, AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION reveals that the 'story' of America is just that - and far more remarkable than we ever thought.

Episodes of AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION premiering in January include:

World War II - premieres Saturday, January 21 at 10/9c The war waged by America's greatest generation is obscured by myth. Few remember that an American admiral played a pivotal role in showing Japan how to attack Pearl Harbor - or that the German army was not the mechanized wonder it's reputed to be.

Smoking, Drinking and Gambling - premieres Saturday, January 21 at 10:30/9:30c Myths obscure the real facts about our favorite vices: smoking, drinking and gambling. You won't believe which nation had the first anti-smoking campaign, what those three X's on a jug of moonshine mean, or where our first slot machines appeared.

Liberty, Leprechauns and Lounging - premieres Saturday, January 28 at 10/9c Myths taint our knowledge of the 4th of July, St. Patrick's Day, and our favorite mini-holiday, the weekend. We should celebrate Independence Day on July 2nd, St. Patrick wasn't Irish, and the idea of a fun weekend is a recent creation.

The Real West - premieres Saturday, January 28 at 10:30/9:30c Much of what we know about the old west is myth, not fact, drawn from movies and TV. Gunfights never started with a quick draw, cowboys weren't all white, and Native Americans feared enemies more menacing than settlers and soldiers.
