“Weird weather patterns, flight schedules, and extraordinary imagination – ultimately, of the thousands of “UFO sightings” that are reported each year around the globe, most can be explained and attributed to normal, Earthly phenomena.
But those cases that can’t be solved – even decades later — puzzle police investigators, government officials, researchers, and even medical communities. Premiering on Discovery, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS explores the most intriguing and convincing UFO stories on the planet. An original Canadian production from Toronto’s Newroad Media, the 13-part series examines two stories in each episode, combining dramatic recreations, CGI, and dynamic expert interviews, to illuminate the most mystifying sightings from around the world – from Alberta to Australia, and from Texas to Tehran! “

“When a global pandemic wipes out eighty percent of the planet’s population, the crew of a lone naval destroyer must find a way to pull humanity from the brink of extinction.”
“Set in the volatile world of 17th century Massachusetts, ‘Salem’ explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth hiding behind the veil of this infamous period in American history. In Salem, witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem.”
“Imagine the perfect American town… beautiful homes, manicured lawns, children playing safely in the streets. Now imagine never being able to leave. You have no communica-tion with the outside world. You think you’re going insane. You must be in Wayward Pines.
Based on the best-selling novel “Pines” by Blake Crouch and brought to life by sus-penseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense,” “Signs”), WAYWARD PINES is the intense new mind-bending event thriller evocative of the classic cult hit “Twin Peaks.””
Based on the novel (and perhaps influenced by the movie). Stars Zoe Saldana.
Those are just some of them…are those others you are anticipating? What about the Cowled Crusader (is that going to happen as a TV series)?
