About The Folklorist

The Folklorist is NewTV’s Emmy® Award-winning television series that offers a captivating look at some of the lesser-known occurrences in history. Whether it’s a tale of a legendary lost city, a forgotten hero, or a hoax beyond belief, The Folklorist brings audiences back to each story’s origins and uncovers what’s been left out of text books, and what lives on as folklore.
