HIT THE ROAD, JACK!
SYFY PREMIERES HAUNTED HIGHWAY FEATURING JACK OSBOURNE, JAEL DE PARDO, DANA WORKMAN AND DEVIN MARBLE
NEW SIX EPISODE PARANORMAL REALITY SERIES TO PREMIERE TUESDAY, JULY 3 AT 10PM ET/PT
NEW YORK – June 14, 2012 – Syfy’s newest paranormal reality series, Haunted Highway (formerly known as Paranormal Highway) will premiere Tuesday, July 3 at 10PM (ET/PT). The hour-long series follows two teams, Jack Osbourne & Dana Workman and Jael de Pardo & Devin Marble, as they do their own first-person investigations of the most frightening claims of paranormal activity along America’s remote back roads.
Fueled by eyewitness interviews and evidence collected with state-of-the-art equipment, the two teams will self-document their harrowing face-to-face encounters with the paranormal. The six episode series will feature examinations and investigations that will take the teams off the beaten path in Montana, South Dakota, Minnesota, Arkansas and Louisiana as they seek hellhounds, skin walkers, ghosts and other paranormal phenomena.
In the premiere episode “Bear Lake Beast / Vergas Hairyman,” Jack and Dana venture to Bear Lake, Utah, in search of the elusive Bear Lake Beast. A reptilian monster over 20 feet long, this creature has been sighted by many but never captured on tape. Their investigation reveals some startling anomalies out there on the dark waters, and culminates in a risky night dive where Jack heads to the depths of the lake in search of the creature’s hunting grounds.
Meanwhile in Vergas, Minnesota, Jael and Devin (Syfy’s Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files) trek through the dense forests on the trail of a creature known to locals as the Hairyman. An aggressive 8 foot humanoid, the Hairyman has been spotted frequently and is thought to be the unknown malevolent cause of many animal attacks. However, when Jael and Devin reach the last known location of the beast, they find some compelling evidence that this giant may not be a legend after all!
Haunted Highway is produced by BASE Productions. John Brenkus, Mickey Stern and Ron Ziskin serve as executive producers.
