Syfy bringing “School Spirits” to television

Syfy Orders Six Episodes of “School Spirits” |.

Syfy orders six, one-hour episodes of the new unscripted series School Spirits from executive producers Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice) and Seth Jarrett (Celebrity Ghost Stories).

The project will tell true ghost stories of hauntings that have happened at schools across the country. The stories will be told in first person narratives through the testimonials of real students, teachers, parents and staff that have encountered the paranormal activity, blended with bone-chilling cinematic reenactments to further bring the haunting experiences to life.

“School hauntings are some of the most terrifying first-hand accounts. The stories that have terrified generations of students and teachers are not for the faint-of-heart,” said Mark Stern, President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions.

Sounds formulaic. “Faint of heart”? Perhaps more like “Sturdy against boredom” because this looks like just another paranormal show.
