Megan Fox is all set to head back to TV as the host of the Travel Channel series 'Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox'. The new show is going have four episodes per series and Fox will investigate some of history's greatest mysteries such as Trojan War to whether or not Amazon women truly existed with the help of experts in the field. 

Fox will be embarking on a journey across the globe in the search for answers by asking some of the toughest questions and challenging beliefs and conventional wisdom which has existed for centuries.

"I would describe myself as a seeker. A seeker is someone who is never content to have obtained enough knowledge," Fox said in a statement, according to Entertainment Weekly. "History only gives us a one-sided view of the truth. That’s something I know from personal experience."

"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," she continued.

The production for the show is going to begin sometime in June and will air later in the upcoming year. Fox shares that she has been passionate about the subject since she was a child and will be the co-creator and the producer of the show. 

According to Deadline, Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, said, "When it comes to debunking the myths around some of our greatest historical mysteries, Megan Fox’s passion for discovering the truth is just visceral. We are as delighted to have her fresh and unbiased perspective on these events as we are to have Megan in our Travel Channel family."
