HOLLYWOOD, CA — While some people are wondering the chances of a Haunted Highway Season 2, the news of a recent acquisition by a United Kingdom television network for two paranormal shows, might be a clue about the future of the new SyFy television show.
London based television network, UKTV, has inked a deal with NBCUniversal for broadcasting licenses of two paranormal shows that originated in the United States. The acquisition includes Haunted Collector, and one of the newest paranormal shows on the SyFy channel, Haunted Highway.
Haunted Highway follows two teams, lead paranormal investigators, Jack Osbourne and Dana Workman, and the second team, Jael de Pardo and Devin Marble, as they investigate frightening claims of paranormal activity along America’s remote back roads.
The first season of Haunted Highway had six highly viewed episodes that featured examinations and investigations that took the two teams of paranormal investigators off the beaten path in Montana, South Dakota, Minnesota, Arkansas and Louisiana as they investigated local folklore such as hell hounds and skin walkers, and also the most credible claims of ghost sightings and other paranormal phenomena.
In the Haunted Collector show, the Zaffis family believe ghosts and spirits inhabit more than just homes and buildings, they can live in objects too. The Haunted Collector follows John Zaffis and his team, including members of his family, as the paranormal investigation team tracks down haunted items, such as paintings, guns, jewelry and dolls. During their paranormal investigations, John Zaffis and his team finds items in homes and businesses that have spirits and demons attached to them, and helps people to either cleans, dispose of, or collect these items in a museum that’s owned by the Zaffis family, that’s full of haunted items.
The UKTV channel, “Watch”, will air their version of Haunted Highway and Haunted Collector to the British in 2013. Steve Hornsey, general manager of Watch, said: “Haunted Highway and Haunted Collector complement Watch’s line-up of ‘out of the ordinary’ programming in 2013, which already includes Beauty and the Beast, The Jonathan Goodwin project (title TBC), Primeval: New World and season 3 of Dynamo.”
The head of acquisitions and co-productions for UKTV, Alexandra Finlay, brokered the acquisition of the two US origin paranormal shows. “These new television programs fit perfectly within Watch’s remit to provide new content with a distinctive twist.” Alexandra Finlay said.
