Megan Fox (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) is teaming with the Travel Channel on Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox, a new series set to begin shooting this June. Fox will star in the series which she co-created and is attached to produce.
The four-episode series is targeting a late 2018 premiere.
“I would describe myself as a seeker. A seeker is someone who is never content to have obtained enough knowledge,” said Megan Fox. “History only gives us a one-sided view of the truth. That’s something I know from personal experience. My own history has been rewritten by other people who had a vested interest in changing the narrative. I haven’t spent my entire life building a career in academia so I don’t have to worry about my reputation or being rebuked by my colleagues, which allows me to push back on the status quo. So much of our history needs to be re-examined.”
Sarah Wetherbee, Emre Sahin, Kelly McPherson, Jason Wolf and Pete Ritchie are also on board as executive producers. The series is produced by Karga Seven Pictures, a Red Arrow Studios company.
“When it comes to debunking the myths around some of our greatest historical mysteries, Megan Fox’s passion for discovering the truth is just visceral,” explained Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “We are as delighted to have her fresh and unbiased perspective on these events as we are to have Megan in our Travel Channel family.”
The Plot: Since an early age, Fox has been obsessed with the history of ancient cultures, people and places, always questioning their “documented” story. Now, she is embarking on an epic and personal journey across the globe where archaeologists and experts will reexamine history, asking tough questions and challenging the conventional wisdom that has existed for centuries. The series will delve into some of the greatest mysteries of time, including whether Amazon women really did exist or if the Trojan War was real.
