'Legends of the Lost with Megan Fox': Travel Channel Series Will Explore Ancient Mysteries
Actress Megan Fox is teaming up with Travel Channel for a four-part series called Legends of the Lost with Megan Fox.
Set to premiere Tuesday, December 4, Legends of the Lost will see Fox explore ancient mysteries, legends and the lore of civilizations past. She'll meet with experts and archaeologists and look through documents and artifacts, all to find answers about things like Stonehenge, the Trojan War, the Vikings, and the first North American settlers .
"All across the world, our ancient ancestors left behind towering mysteries and enchanting myths," said Fox in a statement. "As an actress, I’ve been lucky enough to peek behind the curtain at some of these ancient sites, and it has ignited an insatiable curiosity in me to learn more about these lost worlds that are deep in our distant past."
That curiosity will drive her investigations within each episode, including the premiere which will follow her to Scandinavia and England. While there, the New Girl alum will explore the belief that female warriors aided in making the Vikings "the most feared army of the time."
New archaeological discoveries support the theory Fox explores as previous beliefs that the Viking army was made up solely of men comes into question. The weekly, hour-long episodes will continue through December 25.
