Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation is a History Channel TV series purportedly exposing the US government's secret programs investigating unidentified flying objects (UFOs). It features former military counter-intelligence officer Luis Elizondo, who claims to have directed the Defense Intelligence Agency's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, and Christopher Mellon, former United States Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence. Elizondo says that he resigned after he became frustrated that the government was not taking UFOs , which he considered to be a national security threat, seriously enough.
Executive producer Tom DeLonge (former lead guitarist of rock band Blink-182) has reportedly claimed "he is the military's chosen vessel for UFO disclosure". The author of a best-selling book about UFO disclosure, Leslie Kean, suggested that these revelations were actually such disclosure: "Elizondo confirmed that UFOs are a real; they exist, and they have been officially documented, answering a question so many have debated and speculated about for decades."
Though initially announced to be a limited miniseries, History greenlit a second season in September 2019 after clips from Unidentified that went viral were confirmed by the US Navy to be authentic footage of unexplained aerial objects.
