A conversation with creatives and experts from UFO, a new four-part docuseries from SHOWTIME® and Bad Robot that explores our fascination with unidentified flying objects, and how government and other forces operate in the shadows manipulating the truth to bend it to their own agendas. Following a premiere screening of episode 1, director Mark Monroe, executive producer Glen Zipper, and investigative journalist Leslie Kean joined ATX TV Festival to discuss the making of the series, as well as its central questions: why do we believe what we believe? And what if the truth really is out there?

#1-Interest in UFOs and Aliens Skyrocket in U.S. Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us. There were (thankfully) fewer alien enthusiasts than authorities expected. The day we had all been waiting for is finally here — but it wasn’t as exciting as expected. And that’s probably for the best.
Two million people had pledged to storm Area 51, the highly classified US Air Force facility in Nevada, on Friday to “see them, aliens.”
Instead, many of the 3,000 or so people that showed up in surrounding areas decided against storming the mystifying location, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said.
“They did threaten that they were going to storm,” Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee said. “Once officers warned them about the consequences for storming the base, they did have second thoughts.”
#2-Navy Confirms UFO Videos Are Real and Show Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. The news that the Navy considers the three videos—unofficially known as “FLIR1,” “Gimbal” and “GoFast”—as examples of UAPs first appeared on The Black Vault, a web site that specializes in declassified government documents. “FLIR1” is from November 14, 2004, and “Gimbal” and “GoFast” are from January 21, 2015. Joseph Gradisher, an official spokesperson for the deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, emphasized that these videos represent only some of the UAP sightings the Navy is investigating.
“Those three videos are just part of a larger effort by the U.S. Navy to try and investigate a series of incursions into our training ranges by phenomena that we’re calling unidentified aerial phenomena,” says Gradisher, who declined to say how many sightings there have been. “Our aviators train as they fight. So when they’re out there training, if there’s an incursion by any kind of aerial vehicle phenomena, whatever, it puts the safety of our aviators at risk as well as the security of our training operations.”
