UFO (2021) Official Trailer | SHOWTIME Documentary SeriesUFO is a four-part docu-series from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot and Glen Zipper exploring our fascination with unidentified flying objects, and what clandestine influence the American government, lucrative private companies and the military may have in shielding the truth behind extraterrestrial phenomena to further their own agendas. Watch new episodes on Sundays at 9/8c on…2021-07-21T17:31:09Z

Part one airs tonight. However, if you have a cable or satellite subscription that includes Showtime, you can watch all four episodes on Demand right now. Otherwise, the new episodes will air weekly on TV. Glen Zipper and Abrams’ Bad Robot have brought us the series, which is directed by Mark Monroe and Paul Crowder, Variety shared.

Showtime’s official synopsis for the episode reads: “A groundbreaking 2017 story in the New York Times reveals that the Pentagon secretly spent years studying UFOs, casting new light on decades of unexplained UFO sightings in America — like the 1997 Phoenix Lights encounters and the 2006 Chicago airport sighting. Has first contact already been made, and if so, why is the US government trying to cover it up? Series premiere.”

Episode two will air Sunday, August 15, then part three will air on Sunday, August 22. The series will conclude with the finale on Sunday, August 29. All the episodes will air at 9 p.m. Eastern.

The description for episode 2 reads: “UFO sightings don’t just come from crackpots: in 2004, a team of elite Navy pilots and radar operators had one of many military encounters with unidentified aerial phenomena. 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.”

The synopsis for episode 3 reads: “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?”

And the synopsis for the finale episode reads: “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. Series finale.”
