Disney has announced details on a brand new documentary, FX’s The New York Times Presents: “Lie To Fly”.

Terror took hold of an Alaska Airlines flight last year after a man was accused of trying to crash the plane mid-flight and kill 83 people onboard. However, the accused was not just any passenger – he was a professional pilot, Joseph Emerson, who was under the influence of psychedelic mushrooms after fearing mental health treatment would derail his career.

The New York Times explores Joseph Emerson’s story and follows a growing movement calling for reform of the FAA’s strict rules around pilot mental health, which they claim leaves the public at risk.


This new documentary will premiere on Friday, 23rd August 2024 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and it will be available the following day on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ on Saturday 24th August 2024. Unfortunately, this series of documentaries isn’t available internationally on Disney+.
