SYFY’S NEW ORIGINAL SERIES “DEEP SOUTH PARANORMAL” DELVES INTO DIXIE’S RICH HAUNTED HISTORY TO INVESTIGATE THE REGION’S SOUTHERN SPIRITS AND GHOSTLY LORE
SERIES PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10 AT 10:00PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY – February 25, 2013 – The quest for proof of the paranormal goes deeper than ever – Deep South that is – and in Syfy’s all-new original series Deep South Paranormal, it takes a colorful team of local pros to investigate these restless southern souls. The 6-episode series produced by BASE Productions premieres Wednesday, April 10 at 10 PM (ET/PT).
Deep South Paranormal Research is a bayou-based team on a mission. Steeped in the rich history of their homeland, they want to unlock the mysteries that have baffled Southerners for years. They are a homegrown blend of Cajun, Creole and self-proclaimed rednecks who share a passion for this part of the country and the paranormal events that take place there. They take on anything from swamp apparitions to haunted plantation houses and Southern voodoo legends.
The fun-loving charm of these larger-than-life characters becomes deadly serious when it comes to their investigations, which deal not only with the hazards of paranormal phenomenon, but with physical dangers like gators, snakes, spiders, wild hogs, and mosquitos.
Investigations this season include Alabama’s Bear Creek Swamp, the Old Cahawba ghost town, Florida’s Manntown Cemetery and the Mont Helena Plantation in the Mississippi Delta, to name just a few.
Deep South Paranormal is produced by BASE Productions. John Brenkus and Mickey Stern serve as executive producers.
