Travel Channel has commissioned Red Arrow Studios-owned prodco Karga Seven Pictures to produce a four-part adventure series from Megan Fox, who serves as co-creator and executive producer.
The tentatively titled Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox will follow the Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actor (pictured) as she links with archaeologists and experts to re-examine the history of ancient cultures from across the globe and question their documented story.
The 4 x 60-minute travelogue will delve into such mysteries and myths as whether Amazon women really existed or if the Trojan War was real.
“When it comes to debunking the myths around some of our greatest historical mysteries, Megan Fox’s passion for discovering the truth is just visceral,” said Henry S. Schleiff, group president of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America, in a statement. “We are as delighted to have her fresh and unbiased perspective on these events as we are to have Megan in our Travel Channel family,” said Schleiff.
Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox is expected to debut later this year, with production slated to begin this June.
Fox is repped by ICM Partners and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer.
