'YOU CAN CHECK OUT ANY TIME YOU LIKE, BUT YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE'

DAN AYKROYD NARRATES NEW TRAVEL CHANNEL SERIES, "HOTEL PARANORMAL," SHARING TRUE TERRIFYING TALES OF PARANORMAL HOTEL GUESTS PREMIERING SATURDAY, JULY 11 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK (June 16, 2020) - Your hotel room may be more crowded than you think! Travel Channel's new series, "Hotel Paranormal," premiering on Saturday, July 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, follows the terrifying true stories of those who have come face-to-face with otherworldly hotel guests. Acclaimed writer, actor, musician and filmmaker Dan Aykroyd, who is no stranger to the unexplained, narrates each episode featuring spine-tingling stories of paranormal encounters told from stays at grand hotels, highway motels and inns around the world. From objects flying across rooms to ancient spirits trapped in lobbies to demonic guests, "Hotel Paranormal," in 10 one-hour episodes, brings to life terrifying encounters with dramatic re-creations and paranormal expert insights.

"As a longtime believer in ghosts, I think the incredible encounters we're highlighting on 'Hotel Paranormal' will open up a lot of minds and hopefully break through some of the skepticism people carry about the paranormal," said Aykroyd. "I'm excited to lend my voice to help bring viewers across the United States, these gripping real-life ghost stories, many of which take place in their own backyards."

In the premiere episode, a travelling salesman checks into a motel where he documents poltergeist activity with his cell phone. Fleeing into the night, he becomes possessed by the spirit of a murderer and in need of an exorcism. While on a school trip to the Vatican, a teenager and his friends accidentally set free an ancient evil and suffer the consequences. Then, a journalist is hunting down a story in Connecticut when she checks into a historic New England inn and fights off a supernatural attack. These guests have all become prey to a paranormal predator.
