From J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot comes a four-part docuseries uncovering the (in)credible evidence and events that claim the existence of UFOs and other life forms on – or hovering above – Earth. The series will unravel America’s historic obsession with the extraterrestrial. From “Top Gun” pilots being taunted by tic-tac looking flying saucers in the sky, to Gen Z’s rave in the notorious Area 51, to government conspiracy theories, set ups and cover ups, our UFO Project will take us to the ends of the earth – and even a bit farther than that – and back as we tell the twisted tales of sightings, and deception and what this intense and haunting speculation has done to the psyche of the American public and national trust in the government.


  1. I don’t think anything will happen in our life time. They will not reveal themselves Completely and there intentions to us. Why now, what has changed apart from Nuclear activity which started decades ago. That would have been a good time. Maybe the stigma might be removed which is good. I think all we can hope for in the near future is complete transparency from world wide governments.

  2. When will this be available in Australia? I subscribed to Stan thinking this would be included but it hasn’t popped up 🤔

  3. I wonder why no one has done a documentary on the Vatican and their UFO documents. They own a telescope called Lucifer 😳- that’s right – Lucifer , that’s atop a mountain to observe this phenomenon.

  4. A word of warning. Episode one was awesome and I got really excited to see the second episode. Episode one had a couple of known and obvious fakes but not too many. The interviews were good and there were a lot of facts I hadn;t herd before about the incidents. Sadly then came episode 2. I Shut it off halfway through. It's little more than fakes and unlabeled reenactments. By the middle it had lapsed into an effects film with exciting shots of close flybys and amazing shots of the object skimming the water, all reenactments but nothing to indicate that, ever! This destroyed any credibility the show had because now I find myself sitting there trying to figure out what they had faked compared to the real shots. I'd give episode one a 10 but episode 2 I'd give a 3 and only because of the interviews. The rest came off like a big budget discovery or Lifetime show. I never watch those so why am I watching this? I'll eventually watch the rest for interviews and fast forward through the reenactments. I want to hear and see facts not watch a bloody action movie. JJ Abrahams starts off good but he just can;t seem to help himself about screwing up a good thing.

  5. If there are aliens. Then they would most likely be from an age billions of years prior to planet Earth (Universe 13 Billion years old, Earth 4-5 billion years old). Unless they are from a previous universe(Eventually all will be gone again,maybe leading to another big bang),which would make them sooooo old (useful for advanced tech),or the other possibility of time travel(Courts out on this one). Whatever you choose. Would they really want to talk to us? Would be a comparison of us wanting to talk to ants!
    Unless they want to share their tech with us? Which most sci-fi shows claim as a bad idea(all written by Humans i believe).
    Is there life out there? In my opinion,probably! Has it traveled to us? I don't believe it has! Just take a look at the HUGE numbers involved when talking about space. Nearest galaxy,2.537 million light years. Answer,travel faster than light (theorised to be doable)……Means that the gap between their knowledge and ours would be staggering. Look up the Kardashev scale.

  6. They’re not aliens. They’re demons. The elite cover for them in exchange for riches and power. This is how the world has functioned since time immemorial. It’s all so obvious and tiresome.

  7. I just watched Australia’s channel 7 with their 1 hr research documentary on UFO/UAP… Pretty well done. Sets a higher bar.

  8. It is only a matter of simple deductive reasoning: If there are hundreds of billions of galaxies with septillions of planets in the universe, the possibility for life far outweighs the opposite. Evolution will eventually spawn organic life, when the right conditions for it are there. Add to that the age of the universe, and you eventually have a recipe for highly advanced lifeforms. Now in history there have been several paradigm shifts, and the most basic understanding that Earth is spherical, was even understood by the ancient Greeks. Unfortunately I guess, we all have to wait a century or more, until the last apes have come down from the trees metaphorically speaking. That said the most important question is, whether or not they are friendly. The local "humanoid" ones we experience in all the reports, seem not to interfere and might even be considered "friendly" – but the others out there, that is another question.

  9. First few clips are littered with well known fakes. The nimitz guy is always good to listen to but showing a gluttony of after effects offerings is not encouraging

  10. The Military or the CIA will never tell us the whole truth,they've lied so much for decades they can't tell us the truth,so we're always going to get little pieces here and there,but never the whole truth,plus most people couldn't handle the whole truth.People couldn't handle the fact that Aliens are living here on Earth and the Moon and Mars,and other planets,the Universe is full with life,but we'll never see it,they've lied to much to tell us the whole truth.The only way we're going to get the whole truth is if we go get it ourselves,because CIA.i mean Hollywood/MSM will never tell us the truth,they will always mix a little truth in with a lot of lies,and the same goes for this show,JJ Abrams will mix lies with a little truth,so don't believe everything you hear in this show.

  11. We cant handle this truth. We are less than monkeys to them. Experimenting on us and playing with us. They are God's. Bow down now or we will all be vaporized.

  12. Don't know where I can comment on this but… the lights over Phoenix. I was stationed at the AF base in Gila Bend. Those are definitely night flares dropped by aircraft for night practice. I saw the same configuration many times. The atmosphere must have been just right to create the illusion they were close.

  13. The US Government and CIA has known about and studied ufos and aliens for decades now. We know exactly what they are and we even have their technology. The US navy has patented the TR-3B, a anti gravity aircraft made by Lockheed skunkworks. Many of these ufos are ours. They are top secret projects. Google the patent, you can read it yourself. So why is the news and documentaries being made about crafts that are ours? What are they up to ?

  14. GREAT within 15 seconds of the trailer starting, already showing two OBVIOUS and PROVEN CGI hoaxes. Why would I want to watch this b.s.?? Unbelievable….

  15. Nobody is going to deny that unidentified flying objects exist. The problem is how easily people go from “unidentified flying object” to “aliens are visiting us from outer space and the government is trying to cover it up”. People jump to believe all kinds of crazy conspiracy bullshit based on obscure evidence.

  16. jj abrams created Lost and cloverfield franchise, but this looks like his biggest sci fic project 😀

  17. meanwhile us military reveals ufos are real but we are stuck with mainstream media going on each day about covid

  18. Why all the fake UFO footage? I can spot 4 fake clips in this trailer straight off the bat. If there's that many bad cgi clips in the trailer i don't have high hopes for anything revealing in this documentary, most likely just a money grab on the current hype.

  19. Something is about to happen, yeah yeah heard it all before.
    I think if something does happen, it will be when war breaks out – so we’ll know by 2030

  20. Do Not Watch! I love ufo topics, i'm a fan of Luis Elizondo, I believe people on earth throughout history have been seeing really strange things in the sky. What we want is answers. This show only ask the same questions we all have been asking. Waiste of time!

  21. JJ Abrams should definitely write and direct a feature film about ETs/UFOs. He’s already done “Super 8” which is kinda like Spielberg’s “ET”. Now he should do a “Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind.”
