Dark Skies is an American UFO conspiracy theory–based sci-fi television series (1996–97). 18 episodes, and a two-hour pilot episode were broadcast as a part of the Thrillogy block on NBC. The success of The X-Files on Fox proved there was an audience for science fiction shows, resulting in NBC commissioning this proposed competitor following a pitch from producers Bryce Zabel and Brent Friedman. The series debuted September 21, 1996, on NBC, and was later rerun by the Sci-Fi Channel. Its tagline was "History as we know it is a lie."
