Fox News Channel Launch 'Legends &

Fox News Channel will take a trip back in time over the course of 10 Sundays thanks to a new documentary series set to start in April that will examine the legends of historical Wild West heroes like Jesse James, David Crockett, Doc Holliday and Billy the Kid.

“Legends & Lies: Into The West” will debut Sunday, April 12, at 8 p.m. The series is exec produced by Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly.

Two original episodes will run back-to-back for the premiere week, with brand new episodes debuting every following Sunday. “Legends & Lies” will also be presented during additional weekend slots including Saturdays at 8 p.m. Eastern and on Sundays.

The documentary-style series is produced by Warm Springs Production, which is known for such programs as History’s “Mountain Men,” Animal Planet’s “American River Renegades” and HGTV’s “Log Cabin Living.”

The 21st Century Fox-owned cable outlet billed “Legends & Lies” as a program that will portray critical moments that led to renown for the central figure of each episode. The episodes will also present first-hand accounts from direct descendants and historians, along with archival photographs and special effects. Viewers can then decide, based on forensic evidence and analysis, whether each protagonist’s story is a legend or a lie.
