History net launching new fronts

'Tactical,' 'Daltry' among slate offerings

History Channel has unveiled a new lineup of series and specials for the upcoming season.

Channel will launch four new series this fall, including “Tactical to Practical,” hosted by former “Survivor” contestant Hunter Ellis, which explains how military objects have been adapted into everyday use, and “Extreme History With Roger Daltry,” hosted by the rock icon.

Seven specials will be added to the slate, including “JFK,” which explores the Kennedy presidency on the 40th anniversary of his assassination and “D-Day,” which will take a look at the 60th anni of the famed invasion.

New programming will be embedded in new themed nights, such as Tech Tuesday, Time Machine Thursday and Heavy Metal Friday (on military history). Themed nights will begin early this summer.

“We’ve been testing theme nights and viewer response to them has been so overwhelmingly positive that we decided to implement theme nights based on specific content across our entire primetime programming schedule,” explained Dan Davids, channel’s executive veepee and GM.

Returning shows include “Mail Call,” “Modern Marvels” and preservation series “Save Our History.”

Launched in 1995, channel reaches more than 82 million homes.
