UFO Hunters premiered on HST on January 30, 2008. These UFO Hunters are passionate about separating fact from fallacy when it comes to UFO incidents. Each brings a different background and perspective: Bill Birnes is publisher of UFO Magazine, home to the world's largest collection of documentation on UFO incidents. Dr. Ted Acworth of MIT, a mechanical engineer and researcher who previously worked for NASA, brings the discipline of hard science to the team, assisting in the investigations of reported UFO incidents to determine if they are real. Also from UFO Magazine is investigator Pat Uskert, who became intrigued with the UFO phenomenon after he witnessed a strange metallic object floating over Venice, California. And, finally, Jeff Tomlinson, the scientific intern with the UFO HUNTERS team.
