Urban Legends is a 30 minute 2007 television documentary-style series hosted by Michael Allcock. It is currently airing on the Biography Channel in the U.S., History Television in Canada and FX in the United Kingdom. In each episode, three urban legends are dramatized and presented to the television audience; the audience is then to speculate which one or two of the three is true. Each legend has witnesses to tell the story. For the one or two fake legends, the witnesses are actors, while the true legend(s) uses real people affected by the story. Included in each episode are two quick quiz-like stories, called mini-myths. Each will begin with the number of the mini myth and its name, followed by the story. At the end, it gives the answer when the commercial ends. It has also aired in Argentina, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, Australia and The Netherlands.
