SCI FI’s newest original reality series, “Ghost Hunters International,” follows the adventures of a new team of paranormal investigators as they apply their principles of scientific debunking to some of the most legendary haunted spots around the world.
In the chilling premiere episode, the team heads to Scotland, embarking on a terrifying investigation into the abandoned depths of Mary King’s Close. This underground phenomenon, a warren of vaults and tunnels, was once teeming with destitute inhabitants at the turn of the 19th century. Now, Mary King’s Close is considered one of Scotland’s most haunted locales. From there, the team sets out to uncover the secrets behind claims of restless young spirits at the notoriously haunted Ragged School of Edinburgh, a former residence for impoverished children.
Like their U.S. counterpart, TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society), “Ghost Hunters International” is a squad of real-life ghost-hunting experts - ordinary people who investigate and attempt to debunk claims of otherworldly activity. Comprised of veteran TAPS investigators Robb Demarest, Andy Andrews, Brian Harnois and Donna La Croix, along with Barry Fitzgerald (memorable from the Ghost Hunters’ legendary investigations in Ireland) and newcomer Shannon Sylvia, the “Ghost Hunters International” crew is primed to uncover some of the most startling paranormal evidence yet!
“Ghost Hunters International” is produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television (“American Chopper,” “Dirty Jobs,” “The Ultimate Fighter”). Piligian and Thomas Thayer, along with Rob Katz and Alan David, serve as executive producers.
