Whether or not you believe we're alone in the universe, let's be honest: Who doesn't love a good alien story?
"Aliens in Alaska" (2021) is an eight-part Discovery+ documentary series, profiling a variety of extraterrestrial encounters throughout the wild landscape of America's last frontier. Alaska, the narration explains, is a hotbed for UFO sightings and abductions. The series lays out new evidence and personal testimony from local witnesses to shed light on the alien activity over the past few years. In the first episode, strange men in black suits knock on the door of a UFO witness after an eerie light show, and a woman is terrorized by small humanoid creatures that only she can see. Like we said, believer or no believer, this is tantalizing stuff.
David Pavoni has worked on a number of extraterrestrial-focused series, including "UFO Files" and "UFO Hunters" for History Channel, and was brought on as the Consulting Producer for "Aliens in Alaska". Beyond the usual set of challenges production brings, this series had the added hurdle of being shot during the pandemic: "The home office was in New York, I was in Los Angeles and the crew were in Alaska," remembers David. "It was a fun show, logistically challenging, but we pulled it off."
