Toronto, Canada-based CCI Entertainment has sold its inventively spooky reality series Ghost Trackers to HBO Family stateside. The net plans to roll the series out in January, but will give audiences a sneak-peek this month, as it’s a natural fit for Halloween-themed programming stunts.
The kid-focused reality series features real teens investigating historically ‘haunted’ locales, using proprietary Ghost Trackers equipment to determine if any paranormal activity is afoot. Ghost whispering, however, still seems best left to Jennifer Love Hewitt.
The series debuted on Canadian kidcaster YTV in 2005 and has been greenlit for a third season by that channel. CCI Entertainment is currently looking to sign international deals for the series and is investigating formatting the series for other markets. Additionally, the company has started to field interest from toycos looking to license the property.
