Weird UFO Phone Calls -- Part II

I'm in a bit of a dilemma...

As I reported a few days back, I was contacted by a producer associated with the recently-announced History Channel TV show about Project Blue Book, the Air Force's official UFO study project, and Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the subject of my new book, The Close Encounters Man. The producer wanted some information about the "context" of Hynek's involvement with Blue Book, and I gave him a little. When he wanted more I referred him to my agent, and that's as far as it's gone.

Kelly-Hopkinsville: the UFO case that got away.
While I think it's pretty amazing that there are multiple Hynek projects out there, proving that his work and his legacy are more relevant than ever, I am a little nervous that the TV people may be headed in the wrong direction. A quick read of their May press release and their project description on IMDBpro.com shows that they still have some basic research to do. Journalist Lee Speigel himself pointed this out when the Rolling Stone writer who recently reviewed my book cited erroneous information from the History Channel press release in her article. (I don't blame Lee for being as upset as he was--it was an unfortunate oversight by the RS writer, when she could have just asked me for clarification)
