As mentioned in our coverage of the 2010 Streamy Awards, the first two episodes of “Ghostfacers” – the new original shortform series/brand extension of The CW’s Supernatural – is set to premiere Thursday, April 15, on CWTV.com; and now we have a few more details to share.
The debut of the “Ghostfacers” digital series, starring AJ Buckley and Travis Wester as the world’s greatest self-proclaimed ghost hunters on a quest for the paranormal, coincides with the broadcast of the 100th episode of Supernatural, “Point of No Return”, starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles.
The first two episodes will launch on April 15 at 10 a.m. on CWTV.com, followed by two additional episodes each Thursday for the next four weeks, for a total of 10 episodes. Each episode is approximately three to four minutes in length. On Monday, June 7, all 10 episodes of “Ghostfacers” will migrate from CWTV.com to TheWB.com.
“Ghostfacers” follows a team of fearless and sometimes comical “professional” ghost hunters who investigate other-worldly sightings and record their own adventures in documentary-style episodes. In this first installment of the new series, the Ghostfacers team investigates the haunting of a local theatre by the spirit of a young starlet – played by Kelly Carlson (“Nip/Tuck”) – who, according to legend, was murdered in front of her dressing room mirror.
Fans hungry for more “Ghostfacers” mythology can find additional images, character bios, and video on the “Ghostfacers” website.
In addition to Carlson guest starring, “Ghostfacers” stars AJ Buckley as Ed, the team’s enthusiastic leader, and Travis Wester as Harry, the co-founder of the team and tactical specialist. Brittany Ishibashi is Maggie, Ed’s adopted sister and the team’s tech genius. Austin Basis co-stars as Kenny, the videographer and occasional shaman.
From Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Studio 2.0, “Ghostfacers” is executive produced by McG, Peter Johnson, Jeff Grosvenor, Eric Kripke, and Phil Sgriccia. The series is written by AJ Buckley, Patrick J. Doody, Chris Valenziano, and Travis Wester. “Ghostfacers” characters were created for Supernatural by Trey Callaway and first appeared in the first season episode “Hell House”. The Ghostfacers concept was later expanded upon by Supernatural executive producer and writer Ben Edlund in the third season episode “Ghostfacers”.
