"America: Facts Vs. Fiction" is a documentary series on the American Heroes Channel that is hosted by former Naval officer and actor, Jamie Kaler (TBS's "My Boys").

History as we generally know it is full of holes or half-truths, and a mother lode of juicy details have been lost, distorted, covered up or simply ignored along the way. On a mission to set the record straight, this series is a wake-up call about the surprising hidden facts behind the most familiar and beloved stories from our nation's and military's past, filling in the blanks, debunking the occasional myth, and exploring why we sometimes get our own history, well, slightly wrong. Examining the past with a fresh perspective, this series reveals that the "story" of America is just that — and far more remarkable than we ever thought.

Occasionally, little details don't fit nicely into the broad strokes of our history, so they are altered for the sake of a more compelling narrative. For instance, Paul Revere never galloped through the streets of Boston yelling, "The British are coming!" to warn people of the impending Revolutionary War. And technically, George Washington wasn't the first president of the United States. With no shortage of assumed Americana to debunk, "America: Facts Vs. Fiction" reveals the full truths behind the more commonly accepted half-truths, such as insight into the Commander in Chief's most famous mode of transportation, Air Force One, and the reality behind FDR's condition during WWII.

"America: Facts Vs. Fiction" is produced by Workaholic Productions, Inc., with Matt Hickey and Luke Ellis as executive producers. For American Heroes Channel, Liz Massie is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is senior vice president of content strategy, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
