UFO explores 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. Ignited by the bombshell New York Times story in 2017 revealing that the Pentagon had been secretly tracking UFOs for years, the series examines the history of the phenomenon through cultural and political touchpoints, including shocking testimony from eyewitnesses across the country. As the conversation grows more bizarre and reaches the mainstream by virtue of credible investigations into alien encounters, UFO confronts the most enigmatic questions of all: Why do we believe what we believe? And what is the elusive truth beyond this decades long mystery?

Even as the New York Times brought credibility and a broad audience to the question of UFOs and extraterrestrial life, other figures challenged whether it might all be a great big lie. But when an acclaimed Harvard psychiatrist named John Mack began investigating the phenomenon now known as alien abductions, he proved that these bizarre experiences couldn't be so eagerly dismissed — and that the truth might be far more complicated than we imagine.

As the world reeled from the New York Times bombshell that revealed the government's interest in UFOs, a few dissenting voices suggest that what looks like sincere interest might actually be a disinformation campaign. Is the U.S. government covering up the existence of aliens — or are they using the alien narrative to cover up the existence of something else?

As evidence mounts, the government, along with alien-obsessed billionaire Robert Bigelow, grow more interested in UFOs and the paranormal — and the conversation around them moves from the fringes to the center of the Pentagon.
