Discovery picks up Unsealed: Alien Files

On August 7, 2013, Bellum Entertainment announced that its show Unsealed: Alien Files has been picked up by Discovery Communications.


This show, and a companion show, Unsealed: Conspiracy Files, premiered in September 2012. These shows were syndicated nationally in the United States by Tribune Broadcasting, but weren’t on a single network, which made it difficult for interested viewers to find the shows. But that issue should be eliminated now that Discovery has added Unsealed: Alien Files to its Destination America channel.

Episodes of the show reportedly premiered on Destination America on Thursday, August 8. Bellum Entertainment explains, “Unsealed has already experienced great success in syndication and internationally through the first season and expecting to perform well on cable.” The company announced that the show’s second season will premiere on September 16 “with a full hour of Alien Files.” The aggressive broadcast schedule indicates that the show will air weekly, with two back-to-back half-hour episodes every week, for a total of forty new episodes.

Unsealed: Conspiracy Files will apparently not return for a second season.

The website for Unsealed: Alien Files provides this description of the series::

Unsealed: Alien Files investigates recently released documents regarding alien and UFO encounters, made accessible to the public in 2011 by the Freedom of Information Act. Each week, Unsealed: Alien Files tackles one compelling alien case by opening these previously off-limits secret files. Based on the newly discovered information the show re-examines key evidence and follows developing leads.

Unsealed: Alien Files investigates mass UFO sightings, personal abductions, government cover-ups and breaking alien news from around the world. We delve into the “photoshopping” of space, the value of Wikileaks, and the role social media plays in alien stories. Finally, we examine these newly released documents to see how alien visitations may have affected our past, and what influence they may have on our future. This show will have believers wanting more and skeptics questioning their long held beliefs. Unsealed: Alien Files … exposing the biggest secret on planet Earth.

  1. Unsealed:Alien Files was very interesting. However today’s show from 7 – 7:30 pm central time had very bad audio on the gentleman that was interviewed. Also there was a lot of skipped parts due to some type of tech. difficulty.

  2. As one that has experienced contact since early childhood and having been an officer in U.S. Army air defense missile systems (nuclear weapons qualified) as well as having been debriefed by Project Blue Book investigators three years after it was officially shut down. I find very little surprising. This is only a small portion of what I have seen and experienced.

  3. Pfffft!! Watched a few of these over the last couple of weeks. What a load of BOLLOCKS! I suppose gullible idiots will believe anything. And that Bill Birnes is more full if shit that a whale with no ass!!

  4. The show is interesting, but loses all credibility when the voiceover script is clearly different than the actual photographic evidence shown to viewers. For example, during the “Soviet UFO” episode, the voiceover talent asks, “What compelled 9 skiers to burst from their tent and run naked into a raging snow storm?”. When clearly the photographs show them wearing clothing when found. You cannot take liberties with evidence, especially when it is concerning such touchy subjects like UFOs and Alien lifeforms.

  5. I live in Canada, just outside of EDMONTON, ALBERTA – were close to the Edmonton International Airport, and I think were in the glide path of commercial jes, though they still are too far up for us to be annoyed or – occasionally, we hear a jet late at night. Since I watched the movie, ‘The Fourth Kind’ where that team of Psychologist’s that were in Nome Alaska really opened my eyes up! What I thought were shingles were now possibly some Extra-Terrestial’s medical experiments, there are continually scratch marks on my back, places where I can barely reach. Last summer, I was missing the L4 & L5 Vertabrea, I began to lose the ability to walk, I sought alternative approach as everyone said I probably pulled a muscle, after 3 sessions, he saw that I was getting worse, he was a Chiapractor that employed the ‘Activator Device’ that I have mixed feelings about. He did send me for X-rays, an hour later he called me and informed me that two of my vertabrea were crushed or missing, the spinal column was saved by quick thinking Doctors who, after the Chiapractor called and said, “Call an ambulance and do not get up, just sit down on a chair and wait for the ambulance. They treated my condition as if I had spinal damage. (Note – I was NOT in any accidents that could of accounted for this), once at the hospital they administered morphine, something I’m already on due to the ‘Shingles’, it was very painful. I believe the ET’s were testing my pain comfort levels, I have vague re-collections of an encounter with a ‘Grey’, a few years earlier – outside my car. It was 5 in the morning, and he was watching me from a close distance. Later, I forgot about the encounter until I saw the movie, ‘The 4th Kind’.
    At the hospital, my Doctor ordered an MRI & CAT Scan and had several X-rays for the Doctors to perform surgery that night. It was put on hold due to the type of mysterious damage. I didn’t know if I would ever walk again. If it wasn’t for my Mother, I wouldn’t of made it. I had surgery the next day, (I think they thought Cancer – due to the cultures they grew in the 28 hours since I was admitted to the ER, and then scheduled for surgery. They explained they were going to install some metal re-inforcements, they screwed in a new durable Titanium frame so that my back could somewhat be put back together, two long rods plus 8 other rods that seem to of tightened my rib cage! If it wasn’t for all the ‘HARDWARE’ as the Doctor called it, I would of lost the ability to walk and would be a parapelegic. Now, it’s a slow recovery. At night, sometimes – I can feel they are watching me, I covered up my windows, with heavy draping in my bedroom. And I sleep with my dog! One night he woke me up, he put his paw on my lips, and I saw a bright light outside the cracks in the drapes, a slight humming or vibration, all I knew is that there was something walking on my roof, the lights were flickering. I believe the Dog’s barking prevented what may of had planned for me! I don’t have alot of friends, I live in a huge house with my Mother who became a widower in 2007. I moved in upstairs – above the garage – we have a 2 car garage and above is my ‘Loft’ styled bedroom, huge walk-in closet and a private bath, I have a computer terminal set up – it’s my MANCAVE! Huge flat screen, lots of DVD’s, half are Sci-Fiction. I also study the paranormal but have respect for that type of existance and keep a distance. It wasn’t until I was out at ‘Joe Lake’ with my bestriend and we were both sitting on the picnic table a few feet from the water. Then it came, it glided over the water. And this ship wasn’t all silver and shinny new like a new nickle, a few running lights, it was rectangular in shape, there was an obvious front – as there were small windows at the front, this thing sounded like it could of used a tune up, and it clearly was an older ship with scortch marks, perhaps from re-entering our atmosphere or other worlds atmosphere’s. And this ship looked like it’s been from one side of the galaxy to the other side – and back again. It wasn’t a probe, it was about 200 meters long, the engines were at the back – really just two circular bright – release of energy propulsion that gave the ship the feel of anti-gravity, there were windows on each side – small – but evident! Then it cruised over us and disappeared over the ridge. That was 5 kms from our house.

  6. why does that ( Bill Birnes ) guy have to talk like he talking from inside a bottle , that is very primitive and corny 1950’s

  7. To try to answer a couple of questions posted here:

    1) I recently asked someone from Bellum Ent. about the status of “Unsealed: Alien Files” (since they’ve been airing nothing but reruns since February) and he said that they will be airing 18 new episodes beginning in July and those will run through September with no repeats in that time frame. He also said that the show has been renewed for another season and there will be more episode through 2016! (That sounds like more than just one more season, unless he got the date wrong.) Anyway, good news for us fans. I’m assuming these will be airing in syndication, as well as the Destination America channel, but he didn’t clarify that. The guy also told me that Unsealed will be on Netflix later this year and hopefully, the show will also be released on DVD around the same time.

    2) To answer the other person’s question about why Bill Birnes (and some others) sounds like he’s in a bottle on his interviews with the show: I think he sounds that way because he is doing his interviews via Skype and it is very low-tech, apparently. If the Unsealed production company would spend a little money and have all of the people who are interviewed in a studio, it would sound and look a lot better. But it either would cost too much or maybe some of the people just don’t want to fly out somewhere and be interviewed in a studio. I’m not sure which.

  8. Because if they cancelled it we would know why.
    Still wondering where and when the new season will air..
    If I were Bill Birnes I would never be in public
