“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 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.
