U.S. cable network History will devote an eight-episode series to the theory that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler faked his death.
Produced by Karga Seven Pictures, Hunting Hitler follows a group of investigators, Nazi hunters, forensic scientists and journalists who set out on a search to learn whether the Führer escaped his bunker in Berlin and fled to South America on a U-boat after the fall of Nazi Germany in 1945.
Evidence presented in the series to counter reports that Hitler shot himself in his bunker includes more than 700 declassified FBI documents, the existence of a Nazi lair in the Argentinean jungle, a mysterious plane wreckage in a Colombian marsh and a missing U-boat that could have shuttled Hitler out of Europe.
Hunting Hitler will premiere on History on November 10 at 10 p.m. EST/PST and is airing globally on the channel in more than 180 territories. A+E Networks is handling global distribution.
