I want to be believe -- and so does former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge -- that aliens exist in the real world and not just in science fiction.

DeLonge has teamed up with former Pentagon officials for a six-part documentary series on the History Channel called Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation

Produced by DeLonge, the show will bring together a number of experts "to expose a series of startling encounters and embark on fascinating new investigations that will urge the public to ask questions and look for answers," according to a statement.

Former military intelligence official Luis Elizondo is one of the experts to share his point of view in the series. Elizondo will for the first time present his claims of having spearheaded the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. That Pentagon department was dedicated to investigating reports of UFO encounters from 2007 until 2012, according to the Army Times

Chris Mellon -- former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence for both the Bill Clinton and George Bush administrations -- will also be featured in the series. He drafted the legislation that led to the creation of Special Operations Command. 

Hal Puthoff, a NASA quantum physicist and DoD adviser, and Jim Semivan, a former CIA senior intelligence member, will also offer their expertise.

DeLonge's passion for finding definitive proof of aliens and UFOs is nothing new. DeLonge has written books (both fiction and non-fiction) about aliens, and even started the website, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science.

The website aims to "inspire a newfound appreciation of the profound, yet unresolved, mysteries involving science and the universe through research and entertainment that ultimately builds community, positivity and hope."

In 2017, DeLonge received the UFO Researcher of the Year Award for his work.

"With this show, the real conversation can finally begin," DeLonge said in a statement. 

Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation will air in May on the History Channel.
