Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Robert Zemeckis and based on the top-secret investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952-1969, PROJECT BLUE BOOK is a one-hour drama series that is inspired by the personal experiences of Dr. J. Allen Hynek. Hynek, a brilliant yet underappreciated college professor, is recruited by the U.S. Air Force to spearhead a clandestine operation called Project Blue Book. Along with his partner, the debonair Air Force Captain Michael Quinn, he is summoned to investigate UFO sightings around the country and use science to discover what really happened. However, when some encounters cannot be explained away and cases remain open, Hynek begins to suspect that he has been duped by the government into a larger conspiracy to cover up the truth. Over 700 of which remain unsolved to this day. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War and rising Atomic Era, each episode draw from the actual Project Blue Book case files, blending UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history. Each one-hour episode draws from the actual case files blending UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history. Throughout the season, true to life, documented occurrences will be explored such as the Flatwoods Monster incident that took place in West Virginia, the Gorman Dogfight of Fargo, North Dakota, the Lubbock Lights of Lubbock, Texas and the Chiles-Whitted UFO Incident of Montgomery, Alabama among many others. In the series opener, "The Fuller Dogfight," Dr. Allen Hynek and Capt. Michael Quinn investigate the case of a military pilot who survived a dogfight with an alien craft. Based on the "Gorman Dogfight" case.

PROJECT BLUE BOOK returned for its second season on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT on History Channel. The 10-episode sophomore season finds Dr. Hynek and Captain Michael Quinn on a dangerous quest for the truth and delve deeper into themes of global conspiracy, touch on how UFOs have impacted the evolution of our nation's military practices and technology and lean into the nostalgia of the 1950s. It will also kick-off with a deep dive into two of the most well-known UFO cases in US history: Roswell, New Mexico where a rancher claimed to have found mysterious wreckage on his property thought to be a UFO and Area 51, a government run location in Nevada historically rumored to be a magnet for paranormal events and UFO-related activity. Other episodes this season take Hynek and Quinn further into the secrets and conspiracies of the 1950s, with stories about the haunting Skinwalker Ranch (a 512-acre property reputed to be the site of numerous paranormal and UFO-inspired events), the mysterious Kelly-Hopkinsville encounter (where a rural Kentucky family claimed to have been visited by aliens), the CIA's infamous mind control experiments, and an episode which follows Hynek in his role as expert consultant to the film CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND.
