The Curse of Oak Island
After making the greatest discoveries in Oak Island history one year ago – including scientific evidence of massive quantities of silver deep in the Money Pit area – Rick and Marty Lagina, along with their faithful team, are poised to finally solve the 226-year-old mystery. However, they must once again face unforeseen challenges in the process. The deadly Covid-19 pandemic has once again delayed their efforts by more than a month, and they are now facing unprecedented scrutiny by the provincial Culture, Community and Heritage arm of the government due to all the archaeologically significant finds they made last season all across the island. Nevertheless, they will pick up where they left off in the triangle-shaped swamp, which they now have proven to contain manmade workings. In addition to continuing the investigation of the massive stone road – or possible ship’s wharf – in the Southeastern corner, they will also dig below the muck of the brackish bog looking for evidence of an ancient treasure galleon. Against all odds, this action-packed, emotionally charged season promises to be the greatest so far.
Great Escapes with Morgan Freeman
Sundays 9:00pm | Premieres November 14
Famous jailbreaks are the stuff of legend, as their true stories are often untold. Now, with dramatic recreations, dynamic storytelling and cutting-edge visual effects escapes from prisons like Alcatraz and Sing Sing will come to life in graphic detail. Hosted by Morgan Freeman, each episode of Great Escapes with Morgan Freeman will unearth every step of an inmate’s meticulous plan, the escape route and the intense manhunt that immediately followed. Episodes will feature escapes from prisons ranging from Alcatraz, Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY, the HM Maze Prison in Northern Ireland, to the Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary in Tennessee and more.
Fridays 9:00pm | Premieres November 12
From the producers of Ancient Aliens and The Curse of Oak Island comes The UnXPlained, a one-hour, non-fiction series that will get to the truth behind the most bizarre, strange and mysterious events that happen all around us. We will travel to where strange events have happened, interview the first-hand “experiencers” and then bring in the world’s top scientists and experts who will help us understand what is happening. From UFO encounters and sudden disappearances to evil places, non-human interactions, and much, more, The UnXplained will feature first-rate storytelling and, at times, on-camera demonstrations (e.g., exorcisms, levitations, hauntings, etc.). When appropriate, our cameras will showcase “town hall” situations where experiencers will be brought in to share their stories and offer their own theories as to what is really happening to them and why.
Black Liberators WWII
Thursday 9:00pm | Premieres November 11
Black Liberators WWII explores the untold stories of the triumphs and challenges of Black Canadian and Caribbean soldiers who served in the Canadian Army at the height of Nazism during World War II. This film is an homage to Canada’s Black war heroes that sheds light on their bravery and commitment to freedom. Prejudice and racism may have marked their lives but, undaunted, these patriotic men and women stepped up to free the world from tyranny. Their rich, authentic first-hand accounts must be preserved to remind us all of the sacrifices made by Canadian soldiers of all backgrounds. These stories must never be forgotten.
