Somewhere in the Skies
Episode Summary: Ryan is joined by both David O'Leary and Sean Jablonski, the creators and showrunner of Project Blue Book, the highly anticipated new television show on the History Channel. Project Blue Book is based on the true, top-secret investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952 to 1969. The investigations were headed by the noted astronomer, J. Allen Hynek. What prompted creator, David O'Leary to pen a script based on the life and career of J. Allen Hynek? What cases did he find most compelling to bring to the mainstream? And just exactly what is up with that alien in the tube that we keep seeing in many of the publicity photos? Next, Ryan speaks with co-writer and showrunner, Sean Jablonski. He runs us through the inception of the show, to casting, researching, and eventually producing and running the entire endeavor. How close to real-life is the show? And what can expect in the first season? All this and more in this week's jam-packed episode on Project Blue Book.
