With the success of its reality programming, SyFy has decided to pick up three more reality shows.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the cable outlet will announce today that it is picking up Haunted Collector, Legend Quest and Paranormal Witness to air later this year.
Haunted Collector, 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 will be paired with the second season of Hollywood Treasure, beginning in June.
A month later, Syfy will roll out Legend Quest, an action-adventure series that follows real-life symbologist Ashley Cowie as he travels the world in search of hidden, mystical artifacts. Each episode is designed to combine Indiana Jones-style adventure and Da Vinci Code-type connections as theories are explored.
Finally, Paranormal Witness, a drama-documentary series from Raw TV, the creative team behind Locked Up Abroad and Gold Rush Alaska. The show 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. The show will debut in early September.
The announcement follows continued ratings gains at the NBC Universal-owned network, where primetime tune-in is up 13 percent in total viewers and 7 percent in the advertiser-beloved adults 18-49 demographic thus far this quarter, compared to the same period a year earlier.
We now open up the comments thread to bashing SyFy for optioning more reality shows while canceling SGU.
