"Supernatural" Scares Up "Ghostfacers"

Warner Bros. TV's 2.0 and director McG's production company Wonderland will produce a spinoff to the CW's Vancouver-lensed TV series "Supernatural", titled "Ghostfacers".

The series will debut on TheWB.com and also play on the CW's website, initially running as three-minute episodes, starring actors A.J. Buckley, Travis Wester, Brittany Ishibashi and Austin Basis. Buckley and Wester are also writing the show with Patrick Doody and Chris Valenziano.

Executive producers are McG, Peter Johnson, Jeff Grosvenor, Eric Kripke and Phil Sgriccia.

Premise of the series follows a team of 'ghost hunters' who tape their exploits on the run, complete with shaky "Blair Witch Project" camera effects.

The "Ghostfacers", a deliberately stupid name, debuted on the first season of "Supernatural", created by writer Trey Callaway for the "Hell House" episode, then reappeared in the season three episode "Ghostfacers"...
