Missing Halloween already? Thankfully, there’s a cure for that!
If you’re looking for new paranormal content that elevates the genre to the next level, then the newly launched channel for The Dark Zone on Footprint.TV will peak your interest.
The newest channel to launch on the OTT platform was created by some of today’s most popular personalities in the paranormal genre, including: Dave Schrader (Darkness Radio, Coast to Coast), Susan Slaughter (Ghost Hunters Academy, Ghost Hunters International) Karl Pfeiffer (Ghost Hunters Academy) Patrick Doyle (Ghost Mine), Kristen Luman (Ghost Mine) and Jay Verburg (Ghost Mine).
These renowned investigators have come together with the help of producers Jay Bluemke (Ghost Hunters, Ghost Mine), Scott Pearlman (Ghost Hunters, Ghost Mine) and Kathleen Burns (Ghost Hunters) to bring you the first comprehensive online paranormal network, specializing in content that will explore the age old quest to answer: “Is there life after death?”
As the paranormal reality series fell out of favor with television networks, fans of the genre gathered en masse on social media, chat rooms, fan sites, and message boards requesting that paranormal content make a much needed resurgence. The founders of The Dark Zone listened and decided that the future of paranormal programming was destined to be an online platform to deliver brand new cutting edge content the fans have been waiting for. Putting a channel on the premier OTT multichannel network, Footprint, was an obvious fit.
The Dark Zone emerges with a host of new shows that will give fans the paranormal fix they have yearned for. Premiering this week is Susan Slaughter’s five-part series Hipster Haunts, which has her exploring and investigating the most haunted hot spots in the trendiest parts of L.A. Also coming soon is the series Is It Real?, a show that breaks down and examines the most popular and prolific paranormal evidence videos circulating the web. The Dark Zone’s team of experts will analyze and give their professional and informed insight as to whether these videos are real or fake.
Also in the pipeline is Kristen Luman’s mini-series The Haunted Mind, which explores the way the human brain perceives paranormal encounters, and later this year, Tales From The Dark Zone will be unleashed. On this series, The Dark Zone’s paranormal experts will share their most frightening on-the-job encounters, which will be illustrated by animated recreations that will bring their terrifying stories to life.
The Dark Zone is an experience like no other and can be seen exclusively on its Footprint.TV channel as well as its official site, TheDarkZone.com. Step into The Dark Zone, we dare you!
