HISTORY(R) GAINS UNPRECEDENTED ACCESS TO SKINWALKER RANCH A SITE OF UNEXPLAINABLE PARANORMAL EVENTS IN NEW NONFICTION SERIES "THE SECRET OF SKINWALKER RANCH" PREMIERING MARCH 31 AT 10PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY - February 06, 2020 - For the first time ever, HISTORY is gaining full, unprecedented access to one of the most infamous and secretive hotspots of paranormal and UFO-related activities on earth, Skinwalker Ranch, in a new one-hour nonfiction series "The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch" premiering Tuesday, March 31 at 10PM ET/PT. Few have ever gained official access to Skinwalker Ranch, and none have ever been able to bring cameras onto the property for a television series, until now.
Anchored by never-before-seen footage of the ranch and what it contains, the series will feature a team of scientists and experts who will conduct a daring and thorough search of this infamous 512-acre property located in Utah's Uinta Basin in an attempt to find out the 'who?' 'what?' and 'why?' behind more than 200 years of UFO and paranormal related mysteries. Utilizing the latest in cutting edge technology from lasers and ground penetrating radars to drone thermography, rockets and more, the team will apply hard science and make shocking discoveries while going further and risking more than anyone has done on the ranch before.
Beginning in the 1950's, Skinwalker Ranch and the area around it has been referred to as 'UFO alley,' where numerous anomalous events and strange activity have received worldwide media attention. Since then, the area has been the site of decades of study, some clandestinely funded by the government. In 1996, the property was purchased by billionaire businessman and UFO enthusiast, Robert Bigelow, who used it to conduct his own experiments into the study of the ranch and its other-worldly connections. Three years ago, the property was sold to another, mysterious owner who - for reasons of his own - has, for now, chosen to remain anonymous.
The series hails from executive producer Kevin Burns, the creator and producer of HISTORY's most popular series, including "Ancient Aliens" and cable's #1 nonfiction series "The Curse of Oak Island."
