A+E Network-owned History channel has greenlit a new docuseries on the life, death and work of famed scientist Nikola Tesla.

The Prometheus Entertainment-produced untitled (6×60) project will explore Tesla’s life and work through new access to files, locations and experts.

The inventor died alone January 8, 1943, in his New York hotel room. Although reports say he died from heart failure, within hours of the discovery of his body, witnesses curiously observed a variety of people arriving to the scene including close associates, professional opponents and government agents.

Tesla is believed to have left behind a massive cache of private files containing theories, journals, and hundreds, if not thousands, of groundbreaking designs for technological inventions including wireless electricity, spaceflight, electric cars, space age weapons and anti-gravity machines. If the files do exist, the question remains if they were part of a conspiracy to end the life of a man ahead of his time.

The executive producer for History on the new docuseries is Michael StillerKevin Burns will executive produce for Prometheus.

Prometheus also produces the series The Curse of Oak Island and Ancient Aliens for History.
