SECRETS IN THE SKY: THE UNTOLD STORY OF SKUNK WORKS

Premieres Sunday, June 9 at 9PM ET/PT

For the first time in its 75-year history, Lockheed Martin is opening their hangar doors and pulling back the veil on "Skunk Works," the secret program and subdivision long hidden from the public. Founder and leader Kelly Johnson, as voiced by actor Dennis Quaid, congregated a team comprised of innovators, rule benders and chance takers to partake in the aerospace organization responsible for creating the most innovative machines in modern history - the U-2, the SR-71 Blackbird and the first Stealth bomber to name a few. From the mysterious Area 51 test facility to the latest "spy" plane, this documentary goes deep into a world that is still shrouded in secrecy - a world where wars are won not on a battlefield but at a design table of men drafting aviation blueprints and working with their hands to create modern marvels from the ground up.

"Secrets In The Sky: The Untold Story of Skunk Works" is produced by First Row Films in association with A+E Originals. Rory Karpf serves as director. Steve Ascher, Kristy Sabat and Jessica Conway serve as executive producers for A+E Originals. Jeff Cvitkovic is co-executive producer. Zachary Behr serves as executive producer for HISTORY.

GAME CHANGERS: INSIDE THE VIDEO GAME WARS

Premieres Sunday, June 16 at 9PM ET/PT

This is the untold story of the personal battles that gave rise to the multibillion-dollar video game industry. Brought to life by Academy Award(R) winning director Daniel Junge, this documentary is a tale of brilliant innovations, colossal failures, and ego-driven rivalries on a massive scale. It is a 50-year-long, multi-generation epic featuring corporate coups, industrial espionage and the promise of unimaginable riches being just one cartridge away. Told in chronological order and featuring the sons of the brilliant inventor of the first video game console, Ralph Baer, the co-founder of Atari, Nolan Bushnell, and many more experts in the gaming industry, this documentary highlights the programmers, engineers, management and business practices they followed to compete against each other and become the gaming tycoons we know today.
