GHOST HUNTERS, THE #1 PARANORMAL FRANCHISE ON TELEVISION, HAS JUST GOTTEN BIGGER

'Ghost Hunters Academy' Premieres Wednesday, November 11, at 10PM (ET/PT), Joining Popular Series 'Ghost Hunters' and 'Ghost Hunters International'

New York, NY � October 12, 2009 � The #1 paranormal franchise on television has just gotten bigger. Building upon the enormous success of Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International that has made it the top cable network on Wednesdays at 9PM among Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54, Syfy is launching Ghost Hunters Academy, premiering Wednesday, November 11 @ 10PM (ET/PT).

Kicking off with an investigation at Fort Mifflin, Pennsylvania, Ghost Hunters Academy features a group of aspiring ghost hunters exploring some of the most haunted locations in the country and around the world. Led by veteran ghost hunters Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango, the students train, hands on, in the paranormal arts.

The new recruits venture outside conventional classroom walls tackling new paranormal hotspots as well as favorite old haunts from Ghost Hunters including Fort Mifflin (Pennsylvania), Eastern State Penitentiary (Pennsylvania), and St. Augustine Lighthouse (Florida). By passing the course, students can graduate into investigating on Ghost Hunters or Ghost Hunters International.

In October 2004, Syfy introduced Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson � plumbers by day, Ghost Hunters by night! In its fifth season to-date, Ghost Hunters' popularity has climbed to series highs with nearly 3 million (2.94 million) total viewers, a 2.0 HH rating, 1.8 million Adults 18-49 and 1.9 million Adults 25-54.

Ghost Hunters International premiered in 2008. In its recently concluded second season, GHI averaged more than two million total viewers.

Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International and Ghost Hunters Academy are produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television (Dirty Jobs, The Ultimate Fighter, My Fair Wedding). Piligian and Thomas Thayer, along with Rob Katz and Alan David, serve as executive producers.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in 95 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
