Syfy and Mark Burnett Ghost Hunting for School Spirits
Syfy just recently wrapped production on an original movie called Haunted High. News that they’ve ordered up an original docu-series called “School Spirits” about haunted schools makes me wonder if they haven’t turned into the proverbial dog chasing its tail.
You may know super producer Mark Burnett as the man behind “Survivor” and “The Apprentice”. Now, teaming with “Celebrity Ghost Stories” creator Seth Jarrett, Burnett can add “School Spirits”, a new Syfy reality series that goes to schools around the country chronicling the tales of ghosts said to haunt the hallowed halls of academia, to his resume.
Syfy has given the go-ahead for six episodes of “School Spirits”. In each episode, school ghost stories will be told via reenactments and first-person narratives through the testimonials of students, teachers, parents, and staff who claim to have experienced paranormal activity.
Syfy programming exec Mark Stern tells Variety, “School hauntings are some of the most terrifying first-hand accounts. The stories that have terrified generations of students and teachers are not for the faint of heart."
I hear that. I’ve seen Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II so you don’t have to tell me twice.
