UFO drama 'Blue Book' inspired by real events

'Back to the Future' director Robert Zemeckis will be producing a new TV series about Project Blue Book.
The science-fiction series, which is set to air on 'History' (formerly 'The History Channel'), will be the latest attempt to combine a TV drama with real-life events relating to the UFO phenomenon.

The actual Project Blue Book was an in-depth study of unidentified flying objects carried out by the US Air Force in the 1950s and 1960s. Its goal was to determine whether or not UFOs were a threat to the United States while also scientifically analyzing all known data about the phenomenon.

Little is currently known about the specific plot and setting of the new series but it is believed to center around a college professor who becomes involved in the investigation of UFOs.

"Rarely have I been associated with a project that is a perfect fusion of historical fact and extraordinary entertainment," said Zemeckis.

"We are grateful for A+E Studios' and History's support for what I know will be a fabulous series."

"Project U.F.O." already did this 1978 to 1979 for 2 series. Pretty good series as I recall-must try t get it on my Android box Wiki Link:

I would enjoy seeing systematic qualitative analysis of these reportings using modern software tools. We might gain insight as to the sightings but also the behaviors of the individuals experiencing these phenomena.

I've said for years that I'm just as interested in "why" so many people believe in E.T.s as whether or not they exist. It's not a new phenomenon, historically large numbers of humans have believed in all sorts of mythical creatures (faeries, etc).

Interesting Yet when the many thousands of files on UFOs are presented to the public , manyare redacted . One wonders why ? Why these files even exist in the first place , should make you think of why they do .

I wonder if it isn't a chicken/egg thing too. When documents are released that contain redacted information, it's human nature to want to fill in the blanks with their imagination. I'm not making a case for or against E.T.s, I just find the idea that so many people believe it with little/no tangible evidence fascinating. The same with ghosts, magic, etc.
