SYFY'S HAUNTING HIT SERIES "PARANORMAL WITNESS" RENEWED FOR A SECOND SEASON

Twelve-Episode Pick-Up Order To Premiere August 2012

New York, New York - December 19, 2011 - Syfy has re-upped its frightening docudrama series Paranormal Witness for a second season, it was announced today by Mark Stern, President Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. Production on the twelve-episode pick-up order has commenced and the series is currently scheduled to premiere in August 2012. Paranormal Witness is produced by Raw TV (Locked Up Abroad and Gold Rush Alaska). Executive producers are Dimitri Doganis and Bart Layton.

Paranormal Witness ranked as one of the top 10 new original cable series in the fourth quarter of 2011 among adults 18-49 (#7) and was Syfy's top unscripted non-franchise first season series ever among adults18-49, adults 25-54 and total viewers.

"Paranormal Witness is an edge-of-your-seat television experience and we're thrilled that viewers made it a standout hit for us this fall," said Stern. "We look forward to working with Dimitri and Bart as we showcase another terrifying round of true-life hauntings."

"We're thrilled this series is returning; we think it is unlike anything else out there. The stories are totally gripping, visually arresting and genuinely very scary. We approach these shows as individual horror movies. We love making them and we're convinced the series will continue to grow from its highly successful first season," said Layton and Doganis.

In its debut season, which premiered September 7 at 10/9c PM, Paranormal Witness averaged a 1.3 household rating (990,000 adults 18-49, 980,000 adults 25-54 and 1.7 million total viewers.)
