Zachary Quinto To Host a Revival of Leonard Nimoy's Paranormal Series IN SEARCH OF For The History Channel
Zachary Quinto is following in Leonard Nimoy's footsteps again and is set to host a new UFO series for The History Channel called In Search Of. The series is basically a revival of Rod Serling and Leonard Nimoy's 1970s series of the same name which saw the hosts examine unexplained phenomena all over the world.
The network has ordered 10-episodes of the new series, and each episode will "follow Quinto as he investigates a different subject within a dynamic theme — think: alien encounters, mysterious creatures, UFO sightings, time travel and artificial intelligence — and searches for the truth to some of the world’s greatest mysteries."
The series will also feature interviews with witnesses and scholars with "a personal connection to the phenomenon and include immersive demonstrations and experiments." Quinto had this to say in a statement:
“I am so excited to be reimagining ‘In Search Of’ and exploring new questions and phenomena with all of the advancements in science and technology from which we have benefitted in the past 40 years since the original series first aired. In the spirit of my late dear friend Leonard Nimoy, we intend to honor and perpetuate his endless curiosity about the world — and universe — in which we live. Our director Eddie Schmidt and our partners at Propagate, Universal Television Alternative Studio and FremantleMedia International have ignited the process with enthusiasm and intelligence, and History is the perfect home for this unique and compelling series.”
Eli Lehrer, Executive VP of Programming at History added:
“In the '70s and '80s, the legendary Leonard Nimoy captivated viewers by transporting them through the world of unsolved mysteries and paranormal phenomena. To this day, the investigations conducted in this series remain relevant and a source of public obsession. Now with Zachary’s passion and prevalence in the science fiction genre, the groundbreaking series is back for a new audience.”
I'm actually really excited about this. I enjoy watching these kinds of shows on the History and Discovery Channel's and the fact that Zachary Quinto is involved a cool bonus! Will you be tuning in to watch the series?
