West Hollywood, CA (Thursday, March 20, 2014) – Bad Hat Harry and Geek & Sundry are pleased to announce the launch details of its highly anticipated paranormal digital series “Spooked.” Executive produced by Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Felicia Day (The Guild), “Spooked” will debut on Wednesday, April 16th 2014 (10am PT / 1pm ET) on the free, ad-supported Hulu, Hulu Plus subscription service and YouTube. The premiere will be the first of four weekly 22-minute episodes planned for Season One directed by Richard Martin (Light Years) and written by Michael Gene Conti (Devil’s Trade).
Starring Julian Curtis (Captured), Ashley Johnson (The Killing), Neil Grayston (Eureka), Derek Mio (Greek) and Shyloh Oostwald (In Time), “Spooked” follows the ‘Paranormal Investigation Team’ (P.I.T.) as they investigate phenomena at haunted locations across the country. It features the unpredictable, horrific and often comedic world of P.I.T. as they find themselves dealing with ghosts, aliens and other unexplainable happenings.
The pilot finds our ghost hunters investigating an inexorable poltergeist determined to ruin his daughter’s marriage to her wife. Among the acclaimed guest stars are Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse) and Alison Haislip (Shameless) for the pilot episode, as well as Tom Lenk (The Cabin In The Woods), Constance Wu (Covert Affairs) and Nancy Linehan Charles (The Stepfather) later in the series.
“It’s been a thrill to expand our digital portfolio with ‘Spooked’ on Hulu and collaborate with Felicia and her team,” commented Bryan Singer. “With ‘Spooked’ we developed an irreverent, character-driven series in the paranormal genre that we think fans will enjoy and connect with online.”
Felicia Day added, “Geek & Sundry is very proud to focus on a few key high-quality scripted shows this year. Our community really responds to smart, out-of-the-box content like this. Teaming up with Bryan and Bad Hat Harry has been a blast, ‘Spooked’ has been one of our most ambitious and fun productions to date.”
