TV: Syfy Adding Horror-Themed Reality Shows To Development Slate

We’ll have to see how all of this plays out, but a couple of these sound like they could be pretty cool. I figure we can do a mini-report on them now and then just drop it if they turn out to be super lame.

Variety is doing some preliminary reporting on Syfy’s development slate which is set to be announced later tonight its upfront presentation. A couple of ones that sound like they might have potential are “Stranded”, where a family or group of friends moves into a supposed haunted location, self-documenting their experience in total isolation. “Buyer Beware” follows sellers who try to unload their haunted houses. “Deadfinder” revolves around mediums who help solve cold murder cases. “Ghost Town USA” examines reports of supernatural activity in Mount Holly, N.J.

If any of these get off the ground, which would you be the most interested in?

    I personally feel that reality television shows need to go away permanently. I, unfortunately, caught an episode of some crappy show called “Long Island Medium”, and it was so bad that it actually gave me a headache.

    Reality TV shows suck. But stranded sounds cool.

    I concur Dig-Up-Her-Bones! Science ficition and Horror are two different genres. The SYFY people need to change that name! Maybe Ill start my own horror web site/channel. Yeah right.

    i fucking HATE reality shows!! the only ones i ever liked was SCREAM QUEENS and SyFy’s “SCARE TACTICS” (for a short time). i loath SyFy Channel nowadays (Eureka was the last good show on it and now that is gone too!). why would i want to watch the personal lives of strangers? i don’t even pay enough attention to my own life or those who i genuinely care about in my life (which i know i should). so watching fame whores/money whores acting like trash is not for me.
