Then, Josh and crew spend a night on an island overrun by allegedly haunted dolls, then dive headfirst into the dark waters of the Bahamas in search of one of the area's most infamous legends.

In October 2004, Syfy introduced Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson � plumbers by day, Ghost Hunters by night! The success of its spin-off series, Ghost Hunters International, cemented the Ghost Hunters brand as the top paranormal franchise in cable. The franchise just expanded further with the greenlight of a brand-new pilot, Ghost Hunters Academy. 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.

On Destination Truth, world traveler and intrepid explorer Josh Gates takes viewers off the map and around the globe in search of the answers to some of the world's most intriguing unexplained mysteries. This season, Josh will travel to some of the most extreme locations on earth, including the isolated Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan and the heart of the world's worst nuclear accident at Chernobyl. Viewers will also ride along on unprecedented investigations, including the world's first overnight exploration of King Tut's cursed tomb and pitch-black dives in ancient Caribbean caves. Destination Truth is executive produced by Brad Kuhlman for Ping Pong Productions (1000 Places to See Before You Die, Celebrity Rehab, FM Nation). Bechara Gholam serves as co-executive producer.

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.
