DISCOVERY NETWORKS INTERNATIONAL DARES TO INVESTIGATE BIZARRE PHENOMENA AND MYSTERIOUS CASES IN NEW, ORIGINAL SERIES "THE UNEXPLAINED FILES"

From strange abductions, to mutated species, to bizarre occurrences, there are some phenomena that science cannot-or will not-explain. This summer, Discovery Networks International unveils some of these shocking and mind-boggling cases from around the world in the premiere series THE UNEXPLAINED FILES. From mysterious disappearances and UFO encounters, to unidentified fanged predators and reported curses, THE UNEXPLAINED FILES investigates actual, inexplicable occurrences that have confounded scientists and inspired legends. THE UNEXPLAINED FILES will premiere on Discovery Channel in the UK beginning August 5th and then roll-out around the world in 223 countries and territories across Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific. THE UNEXPLAINED FILES will also air on Science Channel in the United States beginning August 28.

"THE UNEXPLAINED FILES mixes hard science with mystery and storytelling to create a formula that is unique to Discovery programs. Our goal is to provide a forum for credible voices from all sides of these cases so that the viewers can make up their own minds," said Sarah Davies, Vice President, Production and Development, Factual, Discovery Networks International. "Each episode of THE UNEXPLAINED FILES offers smart, lean-forward programming that will leave even the most skeptical viewers wondering what is and is not possible."

Join renowned scientists, credible experts and first-hand eyewitnesses as they present riveting never-before-seen footage and share their vivid first-person accounts of truly bewildering experiences. The series takes viewers on a thrilling expedition presenting some of the most shocking and interesting stories ever told. Within the bizarre yet factual world of THE UNEXPLAINED FILES viewers discover that seeking explanations often leads to compelling questions of the unfamiliar and unexplainable.

THE UNEXPLAINED FILES ventures to Texas to research bizarre hairless, blue-skinned, blue-eyed and hunch-backed creatures that prey on local livestock and farm animals-leaving Texans questioning what these strange animals could possibly be. The series also takes a look at the world's most puzzling tome, the Voynich Manuscript, which is hundreds of years old, appears to be written in an unknown language and contains images of non-existent plants. Who wrote this unbreakable cipher and what does it mean? Heading to Australia, THE UNEXPLAINED FILES delves into the story of Frederick Valentich, a pilot on a routine training flight, who reported that a strange and unusual aircraft was hovering over him just minutes before he disappeared. Valentich and his plane were never seen again. These unsolved mysteries stem from reliable sources offering trembling accounts and daunting evidence that will leave the audience contemplating whether these odd predicaments and occurrences are true or stranger than fiction.

THE UNEXPLAINED FILES is produced for Science Channel (US) and Discovery Networks International by Raw TV Ltd. For Science Channel (US) and Discovery Networks International, Josh Berkley is executive producer. For Discovery Networks International, Sarah Davies is commissioning editor and executive producer. For Science Channel, Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production and Deborah Adler Myers is general manager and executive vice president. For Raw, Dimitri Doganis and Ben Fox are executive producers, and Bart Layton is creative director.
