The Frederick's of Hollywood ambassador will delve into historical lore all over the globe as the host, co-creator and producer of a new Travel Channel series, Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox.
“I would describe myself as a seeker. A seeker is someone who is never content to have obtained enough knowledge,” she said in a statement. “History only gives us a one-sided view of the truth. That’s something I know from personal experience."
Fox added that she sees her lack of traditional expertise in the field of history not as a hindrance, but an asset in investigating topics like the fabled existence of Amazonian female warriors and the Trojan War.
"My own history has been rewritten by other people who had a vested interest in changing the narrative. I haven’t spent my entire life building a career in academia, so I don’t have to worry about my reputation or being rebuked by my colleagues, which allows me to push back on the status quo. So much of our history needs to be re-examined.”
Production of the four-part series will begin in June, with the first hour-long episode scheduled to premiere later this year.
We can't think of a more engaging teacher to give us a history lesson.
