PARANORMAL WITNESS (NEW ORIGINAL SERIES)

Wednesday, September 7 at 10PM -- Paranormal Witness teams with 9PM lead-in Ghost Hunters to anchor the fall's Wednesday prime paranormal programming block. This tense, filmic and high-octane drama-documentary series brings to life the stories of people who have lived through paranormal experiences that defy explanation. Using a mixture of intimate first-hand testimony, actual home video and gritty realistic drama, Paranormal Witness transports the audience into a world turned upside down by extraordinary and terrifying events.

OCTOBER

Saturday, October 1, through Monday, October 31 -- 31 Days of Halloween will unleash nearly 600 hours of bloodcurdling programming with original series, Saturday Original Movies and theatricals as well as ghoulish celebrations on Chiller and Syfy.com.

The month-long fright fest culminates with the annual six-hour Ghost Hunters Halloween Live telecast on October 31.

This year Syfy will partner with NYC & Company, New York City's official tourism, marketing and partnership organization for 31 Days of HalloweeNYC. The joint venture will bring the popular 31 Days of Halloween to the streets of New York City.

SCARE TACTICS (SEASON 4.5)

Mondays at 9 pm ET/PT -- Hosted and executive produced by actor/comedian Tracy Morgan, Scare Tactics is a hidden camera show with a sci-fi twist. The show conspires with friends and family members to lure those close to them into outrageous scenarios. Unsuspecting victims find themselves in shocking situations from alien abductions to brushes with the living dead, taking advantage of the age-old practice of friends playing practical jokes on each other. In the premiere episode, "Tracy the Tour Guide," Tracy Morgan is on hand when one of his ancestors comes back to life in the form of a bloodthirsty mummy.

FACT OR FAKED: PARANORMAL FILES (SEASON 2.5)

Wednesdays at 10 pm ET/PT - Fact or Faked continues its red hot second season with six all-new episodes featuring former FBI agent Ben Hansen, lead scientist Bill Murphy, journalist Jael de Pardo, tech specialist Devin Marble, stunt expert Austin Porter and photographer Lanisha Cole. To date, new episodes this year have averaged more than 1.5 million viewers, up 57% from its first season.

Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files uncovers the truth behind supernatural and unexplained occurrences that have been caught on camera. In each episode, the team searches for the most intriguing images, videos and unnatural phenomenon found online and around the world. After selecting the most compelling cases, they head into the field, attempting to recreate the video, carrying out key experiments and questioning eyewitnesses. The team investigates all the clues and evidence with the most advanced techniques and tools at their disposal, and their objective is to answer the question, "Is this real?"

SANCTUARY (SEASON 4 PREMIERE)

The 13 all-new episodes of Season 4 change everything. With the arrival of the Hollow Earth refugees, the balance between Abnormals and humans is severely upset. In order to keep the peace, Magnus and team must throw out the rulebook. But forging their own way means they're not just dodging dangerous Abnormals anymore, now they've got world governments and new villains nipping at their heels. Sanctuary stars Amanda Tapping as the brilliant Dr. Helen Magnus, Robin Dunne as forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman, Agam Darshi as Kate Freelander, Ryan Robbins as Henry Foss and Christopher Heyerdahl as John Druitt. Created by Damian Kindler (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis), Sanctuary is produced in association with Syfy and is distributed by Tricon Films and Television. Season four of the series is executive produced by Damian Kindler, Amanda Tapping, Martin Wood, Keith Beedie and Tricon Films.

DECEMBER

NEVERLAND (ORIGINAL 4-HOUR MOVIE EVENT)

Neverland, an original prequel to author J.M. Barrie's classic Peter Pan, sweeps in time from the turbulent seas of the pirates of the Caribbean and the back alleys of Dickensian London to a world of pure imagination. The film stars Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man) as James Hook, Keira Knightley as the voice of Tinker Bell, Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins as Smee (who previously played the character in Steven Spielberg's feature Hook), Raoul Trujillo (Tin Man) and Charlie Rowe (Pirate Radio) as one of literature's most cherished characters, Peter Pan.
