LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - After starring with his daughter Miley on the Dinsey Channel's hit series "Hannah Montana" for four years, singer-actor Billy Ray Cyrus is now teaming with another one of his children.
"UFO: Unbelievably Freakin' Obvious" for cable network Syfy has Cyrus and his 21-year-old son Trace investigating conspiracy theories.
"Our audience craves authentic, compelling and informative storytelling that pushes the boundaries of our normal world," said Mark Stern, head of programing for the NBC Universal-owned network.
"Allegations of cover-up and conspiracy around unexplained phenomena has inspired heated debate for decades," Stern said. "It will be interesting to see what truth Billy Ray and Trace may discover."
"The existence of paranormal phenomena is something I've always wanted to explore further," Cyrus said. "Getting the opportunity to take this adventure with my son, who has always had a keen interest in this area, is a dream come true."
