Famed director and producer J.J. Abrams has landed his next project. In the coming months, the Lost creator will develop a documentary series about the phenomenon of UFOs. To bring this project to life, he will work with directors Mark Monroe and Paul Crowder.
“[The series will explore] unsettling theories of a subject that recently reached national headlines, and has historically been the focus of powerful politicians and CEOs, while average citizens pursuing the very same truth have been ridiculed and ostracized,” a source from Showtime told The Hollywood Reporter.
“[It will also examine] the history of the phenomenon through cultural and political touchpoints, including shocking testimony from eyewitnesses across the country.”
The series is projected to debut this August on Showtime. More information regarding the project will be shared in the coming weeks.
