MTV News has announced that “Myths and Facts” will be the first-ever video program to feature a documentary series that examines the myths, legends and real-life experiences of our favorite TV shows.
“I’ve always loved documentaries.
I grew up watching them.
They’re fun, but you just don’t get them on television,” MTV’s senior vice president of content, Katie J. Sullivan, said in a statement.
“It’s hard to imagine someone watching a documentary about ‘Star Trek’ and not hearing about ‘Titanic’ or ‘Star Wars’ or hearing about the ‘Fargo’ episode about ‘Downton Abbey.'”
“We want to take this opportunity to tell these stories in a way that’s never been done before.
It’s going to be a true journey,” Sullivan continued.
“But we also want to find ways to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.”
The series will focus on a fictional television series that has never aired on TV.
“MythBusters” co-creator Craig Mencimer and his team of experts will be leading the project, which will include guest stars such as “Saved by the Bell” star Jodie Foster, comedian Rob Delaney, actor Kevin Bacon and “Lost” star David Duchovny.
“This is a bold step forward for the genre,” Sullivan said.
“This is not a project that’s going anywhere, and we hope viewers will join us on this journey.”
“Myths & Facts” is slated to premiere in 2019 on MTV.
