Paranormal Docu-Series from Executive Producers Mark Burnett and Seth Jarrett & Julie Insogna-Jarrett Recounts Hauntings from Schools Across the U.S.

NEW YORK, NY - June 15, 2012 - This summer on Syfy, school is back in session with the premiere of the hair-raising docu-series School Spirits on Wednesday, June 20 at 10 PM (ET/PT). School Spirits features chilling ghost stories from schools and universities across the country. Each tale is told through the first-person, eyewitness accounts of the students, alumni, faculty and historians who experienced the unexplained often terrifying phenomena, along with chilling dramatic reenactments. Executive Producers are Seth Jarrett and Julie Insogna of Jarrett Creative Group (Celebrity Ghost Stories) and Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor). The premiere season of Schools Spirits consists of six 1-hour episodes to air as follows:

Wednesday, June 20 @ 10PM ET/PT Episode 101 "Sorority House Terror" (University of Michigan) Logline: In 2006, a group of students at the University of Michigan move into their new sorority house - a huge old house located just off campus. Almost immediately, unexplainable disturbances begin to occur. Girls fall mysteriously ill and fights erupt suddenly and without reason. A spectral figure of a man begins to terrorize them but they soon learn there may be a more sinister presence lurking in the house.

Wednesday, June 27 @ 10PM ET/PT Episode 102 "Dorm Room Nightmare" (SUNY Geneseo, NY) Logline: In the fall of 1985, a college sophomore and talented athlete with Olympic dreams begins the school year at SUNY Geneseo. He soon finds himself battling for his life and sanity when a horrifying apparition with a broken neck begins stalking him.

Wednesday, July 11 @ 10PM ET/PT Episode 103 "Collision Curse/Deadly Dorm Games" (Lebanon Valley College, Annville, PA) Logline: A woman is haunted by the victim of a deadly car crash that occurred near her Alma Mater. Two college roommates pull pranks in their dorm, but the spirit of a little girl hit by a train near their dorm gets the last laugh.

Wednesday, July 18 @ 10PM ET/PT Episode 104 "Ghostly Girls' School" (Sweet Briar College, Sweet Briar, VA) Logline: A shadowy figure terrifies four friends at this idyllic campus, but is helped by the ghost of a mischievous little girl. Could the paranormal activity stem from a century old feud involving the college's founding family?

Wednesday, July 25 @ 10PM ET/PT Episode 105 "Frat House Phantom" (Slippery Rock University, Slippery Rock, PA) Logline: Fraternity brothers share their house with the spirit of a local Native American who was hanged after a murderous rampage a century ago.
