Storyline

20th century history as we know it is a lie. Aliens have been among us since the 1940s, but a government cover-up has prevented the public from knowing this. As the series progresses, we follow John Loengard and Kim Sayers as they attempt to thwart numerous plans of the alien Hive, most of which are tied to historical events and figures. In addition, the pair must stay one step ahead of a covert government agency, Majestic-12, tasked with fighting the aliens while maintaining the conspiracy of silence. Written by David Stumme <dstumme@rochester.rr.com>

Trivia

The series was pitched in a single day to ABC, CBS and NBC. Fox was avoided due to the concept's overt similarities to their hit series "The X-Files." Each network received a classified "briefing book" written by Zabel and Friedman, wrapped in plain brown paper, which warned that by opening the package they accepted the high level clearance it implied and the full penalties set by the U-S government for unauthorized disclosure. By the end of the day, two offers had been made, and the series went to NBC. See more »

Thank you!
4 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

My co-creator Brent Friedman and I have worked on a lot of TV series, and written plenty of screenplays, including a bunch which have been filmed, but we never had a better time than when we were writing and producing "Dark Skies." We appreciate your positive feedback. It means a lot. Thanks.
