Plot Synopsis

BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED is a one-hour docuseries that follows former CIA operative Mike Baker, as he digs into government-funded clandestine programs that are collectively called the black budget. With unprecedented access, Mike will look at different top-secret government program steeped in cutting edge science. Conducting his own research, speaking with journalists, experts, former government and black file officials and scientists, he'll stop at nothing to delve deeper into these black files than has ever been done before. In each 60-minute episode, Mike seeks out the truth behind some of the world's most intriguing mysteries. From a space-based military program to an undefeatable army with superhuman strength and the ability to kill with their minds, Mike will pull back the curtain on the programs that sound more like science fiction than truth.

In the series opener, "Secrets of the Space Force," Mike explores a top-secret aviation program funded by a mysterious money trail that could revolutionize flight transportation by attaining Mach 5 speeds, nearly 4,000 mph. But could this hypersonic speed technology fall into the wrong hands? Mike delves into the black files and explores how a few nations are working on hypersonic missiles, capable of reaching their target in minutes and completely unstoppable. In another episode, Mike digs into another clandestine program, investigating the credible sources of alien sightings and a program dedicated to researching, tracking and identifying UFOs. Even within the government, most don't know about the program. Are they capturing hostile spy craft? Testing out latest technology? Or could it be something else? A series of recently released videos filmed by the Department of Defense show a technology that scientists and aviation experts agree is beyond our capability and very possibly, something from beyond our world.
Season 2 of BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED premiered on Wednesday, March 9, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT on Science Channel. This season, Mike will explore a top-secret aerospace program that, according to recently uncovered documents, has been involved in investigations into the paranormal such as werewolves, ghosts, cattle mutilations and more. When the US Navy recently confirmed the existence of a covert group investigating unknown aerial phenomena, AATIP, or the Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program became front page news. But there is a much more secretive and equally shadowy precursor to AATIP known as AAWSAP, or the Advanced Aerospace Weapon Systems Applications Program. Their focus was firmly on what can only be termed as "the real-life X Files." But how and why was our government investigating such phenomena? And how does it affect the safety of our nation? Also this season, Mike investigates what's been called one of America's best kept secrets -- a list of emergency powers the President has at their disposal during extreme events like nuclear war or governmental collapse. Recently, there have been calls in Congress to limit the powers coming from a Black File called PEADS, short for 'Presidential Emergency Action Documents.' These highly secretive documents confer extraordinary and unlimited Presidential powers during "Acts of Wartime" without any congressional approval or oversight. What are the scenarios that trigger PEADS and what powers do they contain?
