It's always exciting to hear about new non-fiction paranormal TV, and Close Encounters definitely fits that bill as it explores unsolved UFO sightings. I can't wait! Good thing we don't have to wait long:
Close Encounters - Series Premiere
Friday January 10, 2014 at 10 & 10:30 pm ET/ 7 & 7:30PM PT on Discovery
Here is a series description:
"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 with back-to-back episodes on Friday, January 10 at 10 and 10:30 p.m. ET/7 and 7:30 p.m. PT, 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!"
Sounds pretty awesome to me! The show even offers for people to share their own stories on Twitter @EncountersTV (#CloseEncounters).
