Travel Channel has announced that its upcoming live ghost hunting show Haunted Live will have an audience interaction aspect, via social media. The show will feature the typical elaborate camera setups of most ghost-hunting shows, but unlike most recorded programs, all of the camera feeds will be accessible to viewers via the network’s official Facebook page. What’s more, viewers will be able to send messages to the team, tipping them off to any activity in areas they aren’t currently inhabiting.
The show is hosted by the ghost-hunting team of Chris Smith, Steven “Doogie” McDougal, Scott Porter, Brannon Smith, and Mike Goncalves, otherwise known as the Tennessee Wraith Chasers:
Smith said: “This is going to be the ultimate paranormal experience. It’s like nothing that’s ever been done before in this field and on this level. We have such a loyal and passionate fan base. With their eyes and ears added to each investigation, there’s no telling what we could uncover. Board the Wraith Train, strap in tight and enjoy the ride.”
McDougal added: “We try to dig deep into the paranormal, seeking out the unknown mysteries to the other side. This show takes our skills to the next level as all of Wraith Nation will be on the hunt alongside the TWC. All those extra eyes peering into the paranormal realm, I think we’ll have the upper hand and those spirits will have no place to hide.”
Each of the weekly live shows will feature a new location, which is kept secret until the actual broadcast. Haunted Live with the Tennessee Wraith Chasers premieres on Friday, September 14th at 10:00pm Eastern on Travel Channel.
