Paranormal Investigators (working title) will separate fact from fiction by scouring the web and traveling the world in an attempt to uncover the truth behind some of the most compelling, unexplained supernatural and paranormal occurrences caught on camera. Series begins production this spring and premieres on Syfy Thursday, July 15 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

The series is executive produced by John Brenkus and Mickey Stern for BASE Productions, and is a co-production with Sci Fi Channel Europe LLC. The six episodes of Paranormal Investigators (working title) will commence production in spring 2010 and premiere summer 2010.

"Paranormal Investigators is a strong and natural fit for our growing Syfy reality slate and will be in great company alongside our successful Ghost Hunters franchise," said Stern.

The six-person team, led by former FBI Special Agent Ben Hansen, consists of Larry Caughlan, Jael de Pardo, Chi-Lan Lieu, Bill Murphy and Austin Porter.

This wide-ranging phenomena can include ghosts, poltergeist activity, UFOs, alien and creature sightings, and past lives.

After agreeing on which video warrants further investigation, the team will embark on a full investigation in order to try and explain the unexplainable, and dispel hoaxes from fact. They will try to recreate images, carry out scientific experiments, and search for clues and evidence using the latest technology and investigative techniques; in order to answer the question, "Is this real?"

"Paranormal Investigators (working title) will take viewers inside the creepy and mysterious world of paranormal behavior," said Brenkus.
