Project Blue Book is an American historical drama television series that premiered on History on 08 January 2019.
A tough US Air Force officer and a sceptical scientist investigate UFO and alien conspiracies as Cold War paranoia spreads.
The series is based on the real-life Project Blue Book, a series of studies on unidentified flying objects conducted by the United States Air Force.
In 1952, Dr J. Allen Hynek joins Project Blue Book, an investigation into UFOs conducted by the US Air Force, working with Captain Michael Quinn to investigate what happened after a pilot, Henry Fuller, claims to have gotten into a dogfight with an alien craft in Fargo. The two travel to Fargo to talk to Fuller and to look at Fuller’s plane. Meanwhile, Allen’s wife, Mimi, makes a new friend while out shopping, Susie Miller. The two initially conclude that Fuller saw a weather balloon, though Hynek begins to doubt the veracity of this solution. Quinn takes Hynek up to prove him wrong and to recreate Fuller’s flight, which ends in the two of them crashing in a field, where Hynek sees a mysterious figure who disappears. Hynek has a troubling conversation with Fuller in the hospital. Later, while heading home, he’s followed by a mysterious black car, which he then follows to an abandoned fairground, which appears to be hiding some sort of secret facility. Susie appears to be following the Hyneks, while Fuller is forcibly taken from the hospital. The UFO encounter is loosely based on the Gorman dogfight incident.
