Premieres Friday, July 20 at 10 PM ET/PT on HISTORY
HISTORY’s new unscripted series, “In Search Of” kicks off its ten-episode first season. Inspired by the iconic 1970s’ franchise of the same name, "In Search Of" is an investigative series that delves into all manners of mysterious phenomena throughout the world. Emmy-nominated actor, Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Snowden) executive produces and hosts the series as the lead investigator, searching for answers to some of the world’s largest mysteries.
From the mythical to the scientific, each one-hour episode follows Quinto as he investigates a different subject within a dynamic theme – such as superhumans, alien life, artificial intelligence, Atlantis, time travel, mysterious creatures and much more, in search of the truth to some of the world’s greatest mysteries.
“In Search Of” explores enigmas told through the eyes of witnesses and scholars with a personal connection to the phenomenon and includes immersive demonstrations and experiments that contextualize each episode’s theme. The original “In Search Of” series aired from 1977-1982 and was hosted by Rod Serling and later by Leonard Nimoy following Serling’s death. This new version pushes the limits and the approach used to search for these answers through new technology, new locations and a deeper analysis. Quinto’s quest for answers takes him across the U.S. from New York City to Los Angeles, and across the globe from Australia to Morocco, Italy, Greece and the UK.
