‘Ghost Hunters’ goes to College
Sci Fi Channel has given a green light to Ghost Hunters: New Generation, a six-episode spin-off set at a college. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the channel also commissioned a sixth season of the main series plus a third season of Ghost Hunters International spinoff.
Creator Craig Piligian’s deal also calls for a new, original series to debut on the channel in 2010.
"Craig is a star performer who’s been a great partner," Sci Fi executive vp original programming Mark Stern said. "You want to be in business with people like him on a consistent basis."
The new series will take GH regulars Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango and have them work with students on investigating paranormal activity.
"It’s going to be more of a teaching format," Piligian said. "We’re going to try to have a little more fun with the franchise."
"What’s cool about Ghost Hunters is it has tried to rely on empirical science," Stern said. "This is an opportunity to delve into that a little deeper and take the show into a more academic setting."
