American Chronicles is a documentary television program which was broadcast by Fox Broadcasting Company as part of its 1990 fall lineup.

American Chronicles was produced by David Lynch and Mark Frost, and featured many of the same quirky camera angles, unusual music, and a focus on violence and sexuality that were hallmarks of their ABC program, Twin Peaks. The half-hour weekly program was narrated by Richard Dreyfuss.

This program had a relatively brief run, being cancelled just over three months after its premiere, after ranking last out of 98 shows with an average household rating of 3.07.[citation needed]
