The network will announce at Tuesday’s upfront presentation to advertisers in New York that it has picked up a trio of reality series — “Haunted Collector,” “Legend Quest” and “Paranormal Witness” — to launch later this year. The series will join the net’s growing cadre of unscripted hits, including the allegedly faked “Ghost Hunters,” “Destination Truth” and “Face Off,” which was recently renewed for a second season.
“Haunted Collector,” a working title, centers on a family of renowned paranormal investigators who spend its time tracking down haunted items. The family then houses its collections — think guns, jewelry, paintings and dolls — in its museum. The series is from Gurney Prods.’ Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney.
“Paranormal Witness,” a drama-documentary series that will bring to life the stories of people who claim to have lived through paranormal experiences. Episodes will feature a mixture of first-hand testimony and gritty drama. Set to premiere in September.
