U.S. cable network Discovery Channel is to air a one-hour special on the influence of secret organizations and societies on prominent members of the American government, entitled Secrets of Secret Societies, on November 14.

In the Left/Right-produced program, experts such as Mitch Horwitz and James Wasserman (pictured above) share evidence that suggests the Freemasons counted influential artists, politicians and scientists as members.

The program will argue that architectural details in Washington DC point to signs of secret societies,  present rituals “never before-seen” on TV and explore other secret societies such as Skull and Bones, the Bilderberg Group and the Bohemian Club.

The special is executive produced by Left/Brain’s Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver, and Discovery’s Craig Coffman.
