Ok, boils ‘n ghouls, in case you weren’t aware, I’m a huge fan of the show SUPERNATURAL. Granted, I think things have become a little bogged down since the continuing “Angels, Demons, Satan on earth” storyline hit, but the first season and all the monster-of-the-week episodes kick ass. In case you haven’t been following the show, the premise follows two brothers traveling around the country in their vintage impala and kicking monster ass. Perhaps one of the best shows on television right now. Anyhoo, there have been 3 episodes in the series so far featuring the GHOSTFACERS (the first in Season 1 before they were actually called GhostFacers, then just two guys behind the paranormal website Hellhound’s Lair). Basically, if you think of that show Ghost Hunters with a group of bungling 20-somethings, but much more enjoyable, you’ve got the gist. They’re always comedic episodes and always, always entertain.
Well, apparently, they’re going to get their own little web series. This is something I’ll be sure to watch (and post, if embeddable). Here’s the scoop from the creeps over at Shock Till You Drop:
McG’s Wonderland shingle and Warner Bros. TV are plotting an Internet spinoff to the CW’s Supernatural titled Ghostfacers according to Variety.
Wonderland has already begun production on the project, which will initially run as 10 three-minute episodes, which follows a team of ghost hunters who tape their exploits in documentary fashion.
The somewhat comedic group first appeared on the first season of Supernatural (and were created for the show by Trey Callaway for the episode “Hell House”) and also returned in season three, in the episode “Ghostfacers,” by Ben Edlund.
Ghostfacers stars A.J. Buckley (“CSI: NY”), Travis Wester (“Bones”), Brittany Ishibashi (“Supernatural”) and Austin Basis (“Life Unexpected”). The first episode will follow the Ghostfacers as they investigate a theater believed to be haunted by the ghost of a young starlet (played by “Nip/Tuck” alum Kelly Carlson).
“Supernatural has sprung forth beyond the TV show,” said Wonderland TV topper Peter Johnson.. “The mother series seems flexible enough to allow our creative talent to pursue some of these other arenas.”
Beyond the webisodes, TheWB.com and CWTV.com will also include other Ghostfacers content, such as gag reels, behind-the-scenes videos, photo galleries and actor confessionals. More mythology will also be uploaded to a dedicated Ghostfacers website. Meanwhile Supernatural is currently in it’s fifth season.
