Strange Universe was a United States syndicated daily half-hour program about paranormal phenomena that aired from 1996 to 1998. Developed by Rysher Entertainment and Chris Craft Television, it debuted in 1996, hosted by Emmitt Miller and Dana Adams. The show was presented in a daily tabloid television format, with the hosts introducing segments on various fortean and New Age topics, sometimes accompanied with interviews.
The show was on the air from 1996 to 1998 for a total of 390 episodes. It usually appeared on UPN network affiliates, as Chris-Craft owned half of UPN and their stations carried UPN programming. The series was also syndicated internationally, airing in Canada on Access, The Education Station (currently known as CTV 2 Alberta).
In 1996, for the first time in its broadcast history, it dedicated a full episode to subject of alleged footage from Area 51 of an "alien interview". This was released in 1997 as Area 51: The Alien Interview, directed by Jeff Broadstreet, and starring Steven Williams.
