There may be some basis to a few of the episodes. If you think X-Files was neat you should really try and buy the "Dark Skies" dvd collection. It
mixes historical facts and creates a whole new history. It also is the only show that deals with Majestic. According to executive producer Bryce
Zabel, who, with supervising producer Brent Friedman, is also the series' co-creator, Dark Skies contains more truth than some viewers may suspect.
"My name is John Loengard.
This program is being presented as fiction
to protect those people fighting in the Resistance.
But I will tell you the truth now, if you will listen..."
"Around the same time, I was doing final rewrites on Official Denial, and I was contacted by a guy who wanted to give me notes on the script. I asked
the guy who he was, and he said, 'It doesn't work that way -- you give me a name.' Scrambling for a name, I said 'you're John Loengard,' and
that's the name that he used on the few occasions when we talked."
According to Zabel, this anonymous informant, claiming first-hand knowledge of a government cover-up of saucer activity, was a catalyst that helped
spark the core concept of Dark Skies. Zabel didn't find "Loengard's" story particular credible, and suspects that he may have been a saucer
enthusiast so desperate to be listened to, that he felt compelled to make up a good story. Zabel even considers the possibility that his informant may
have been giving false information in order to further muddy the waters, as many UFO experts believe is sometimes done by the government as part of a
continuing cover-up effort.
**I can't seem to find the source for the above information as I had it scrapbooked in my browser.**
