SYFY DOUBLES UP ON THE PARANORMAL THIS WINTER

SEASON 2 OF HAUNTED HIGHWAY FEATURING JACK OSBOURNE PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27 AT 10PM

SERIES PREMIERE OF KILLER CONTACT AIRS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4 AT 10PM

NEW YORK - November 21, 2013 - This winter, it's not just the weather outside that will be frightful when Syfy launches two chilling paranormal investigation series. Re-join Jack Osbourne, Jael de Pardo, Dana Workman and Devin Marble as they travel America's remote back roads searching for paranormal activity when Season 2 of Syfy's Haunted Highway premieres, Wednesday, November 27 at 10PM ET/PT.

Then, one week later, gear up to globetrot with Syfy's newest unscripted series Killer Contact. Beginning Wednesday, December 4 at 10PM ET/PT, Killer Contact's team of intrepid paranormal investigators travel around the world using ghost hunting techniques to search for answers to the world's most notorious murder mysteries - including cases that have eluded forensic scientists, detectives and historians for centuries.

ABOUT HAUNTED HIGHWAY

Fueled by eyewitness interviews and evidence collected with state-of-the-art equipment, this new season will push our two teams of investigators - Jack Osbourne & Dana Workman and Jael de Pardo & Devin Marble - further off the beaten path as they self-document harrowing face-to-face encounters with the unexplainable in some of America's darkest and most remote regions.

In a first for the series, the second season kicks off with an investigation, "Island of Lost Souls," that features both teams partnering up to take on their biggest case yet: a journey to the remote islands of Dry Tortugas, located 80 miles off the coast of Florida. There, they will conduct their own first-person investigation into an abandoned military fort that's rumored to harbor the ghost of a possible Lincoln assassination conspirator.

The season's second episode, "Manchac Swamp / Moonville Tunnel" (Wednesday, December 4 at 9PM) features Jack and Dana traveling to a Louisiana swamp town where hundreds of people are rumored to have died during a fateful funeral of a vengeful psychic. Meanwhile in southeast Ohio, Jael and Devin investigate a haunted tunnel in the ghost-town of Moonville, OH.

Future cases this season include "Beast of Bray Road / Tonopah Mine" in Wisconsin and Nevada (Tuesday, December 10 at 9PM); "Lake Murray Beast / The Donner Party" in South Carolina and California (Wednesday, December 11 at 9PM); "Shades of Death / Bridge of Doom" in Ohio and New Jersey (Tuesday, December 17 at 9PM); and "Black Angel / Arizona Domes" in Iowa and Arizona (Wednesday, December 18 at 9PM).

Haunted Highway is produced by BASE Productions. John Brenkus, Mickey Stern and Ron Ziskin serve as executive producers.

ABOUT KILLER CONTACT

During the six-episode series, the Killer Contact team responds to reports of extreme and dangerous supernatural activity around the world. At these reputedly haunted sites, they delve into the gruesome history of the infamous individuals who were active there - as well as the victims of their heinous crimes - to determine if they are the cause of present-day hauntings.

The Killer Contact team includes point man Austin Cook, researcher Adam Leidenfrost, ghost interrogator Greg Niecestro, tech guru Hector Barragan and role player Molly O'Connolly. Together they use any means necessary to coax the paranormal into revealing itself, even if it means a dramatic reenactment of a human sacrifice to tempt the tyrannical Mayan ruler, Lord Smoking Shell.

In the premiere episode, "Jack the Ripper" (Wednesday, December 4 at 10PM), the team heads to London, England on the trail of the real identity of one of the world's most notorious serial killers. While there, the team talks to a Ripper expert and investigates new reports of paranormal activity at the Ten Bells Pub and the Princess Alice - Victorian-era pubs said to have ties to Jack's victims.

Upcoming Killer Contact episodes also explore the enduring mysteries of "Vlad the Impaler: Dracula" in Romania (Tuesday, December 10 at 10PM); bloodthirsty "Lucrezia Borgia" in Italy (Wednesday, December 11 at 10PM); the reportedly occult-obsessed "The Hellfire Club" in Scotland and Ireland (Tuesday, December 17 at 10PM); "The Mayan Empire" in Belize and "The Butcher of Iquique" in Chile (Wednesday, December 18 at 10PM and 11PM respectively).

Killer Contact is produced by Pilgrim Studios with Craig Piligian and Mike Nichols serving as Executive Producers. The team also produces Syfy's long-running original hit series Ghost Hunters.

With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities.
