Imagine four girls with the courage of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the curiosity of the Scooby Doo gang and you get The Girly Ghosthunters. Follow this group of real-life paranormal researchers as they take part in a road trip to explore the world of the supernatural in this new half-hour documentary series, airing Fridays at 9:30pm ET, beginning January 14, exclusively on SPACE.
Spirit summoner Nicole, photographer Corrie, spirit communicator Dana and history aficionado Jen are a group of best friends who travel in their signature Winnebago, (along with their mascot Gnomie the Ghost Hunting Gnome) to various haunted sites across Ontario presenting an unforgettable trip full of scares and laughs.
In the premiere episode, the girls take in the arts as they visit the Grand Theatre in London, Ont. There they attempt communication with the spirit of Ambrose Small, a successful Canadian theatrical producer and self-made millionaire who owned and operated the venue from its inception. Other locations examined in the first season include the Ottawa Jail Hostel, the Banting House in Toronto, Ottawa’s Bytown Museum, Fort Henry in Kingston and Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Angel Inn.
Sharing an interest in the unknown and an eagerness to look for answers, the girls formed the Kitchener Waterloo Paranormal Research Society three years ago and have hosted seminars at various paranormal conventions in the area.
Produced in association with SPACE, The Girly Ghosthunters is directed by Sean Buckley and produced by Jim Kiriakakis of Toronto’s Buck Productions.
