I have to give Syfy credit - when they announce new series, it could cover almost anything (as long as the paranormal are involved). With TLC, you get a lot of cheesy reality. The networks seem to fight over themselves to see who can get the most hospital drama or police procedurals on the air. Syfy knows its bread and butter, though: haunting.
The network announced three new series for its 2013 schedule that resemble that remark today. The series are 'Ghost Mine,' 'Stranded,' and (working title) 'Notorious Hauntings.'
'Ghost Mine' will focus on a haunted mine. Duh. The show, which premieres January 16 at 10 p.m., will provide a window into the lives of miners who have to deal what that demanding profession everyday - as well as the paranormal investigators trying to figure out the mysteries of the mine they work in. Six episodes have been ordered.
'Stranded' is about being stranded - okay, not really. It will focus on an experiment that is unconventional and frightening. No, not forcing someone to watch six straight episodes of 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,' - that would be a good idea, though. The series also had six episodes ordered and debuts February 27 at 10 p.m.
Last is 'Notorious Hauntings,' which will feature ________ episodes (can you fill in that blank?). The show, which debuts in the spring, will travel with researchers as they investigate extremely dangerous supernatural stuff all around the world.
Any of these appeal to you?
