Last night I saw a commercial for the new show Deep South Paranormal, and that it will arrive on Space starting April 30, 2013. The show recently started airing on SyFy (and the trailer below is from SyFy with SyFy dates). I'm not quite sure what to make of it, but I'll give it that the folks on the show certainly have a lot of chutzpah and I am certainly curious enough to check it out.
Here is more about the show: "The quest for proof of the paranormal goes deeper than ever – Deep South that is. Deep South Paranormal follows a bayou-based team on a mission. Steeped in the rich history of their homeland, they want to unlock the mysteries that have baffled Southerners for years. They are a homegrown blend of self-proclaimed rednecks who share a passion for this part of the country and the paranormal events that take place there. They take on anything from swamp apparitions to haunted plantation houses and Southern voodoo legends.
The fun-loving charm of these larger-than-life characters becomes deadly serious when it comes to their investigations, which deal not only with the hazards of paranormal phenomenon, but with physical dangers like gators, snakes, spiders, wild hogs, and mosquitos.
Investigations this season include Alabama’s Bear Creek Swamp, the Old Cahawba ghost town, Florida’s Manntown Cemetery and the Mont Helena Plantation in the Mississippi Delta, to name just a few."
Deep South Paranormal is set for 6 episodes. See more about Deep South Paranormal over at the shows website, check out info on the individual investigators and take a peek at the haunted (or gothic?) locations.
