Did you grow up with an affinity for the unexplained with a love born from the very heart of spectral shenanigans (Ghostbusters)? If so I have a brand new mini-series you’re bound to adore and wouldn’t you know it you can catch it starting June 4th on both Hulu and Youtube!
I know what you’re thinking…
I’ve never even heard of SPOOKED! So what is it?
The official description:
Executive Produced by Bryan Singer (X-Men) and Felicia Day (Supernatural), “Spooked” follows the ‘Paranormal Investigation Team’ (P.I.T.) as they investigate phenomena at haunted locations across the country. It features the unpredictable, horrific and often comedic world of P.I.T. as they find themselves dealing with ghosts, aliens and other unexplainable happenings. It stars Julian Curtis as Connor (Captured), Ashley Johnson as Morgan (The Avengers), Neil Grayston as Lindsey (Eureka), Derek Mio as Elliot (Greek) and Shyloh Oostwald as Piper (In Time). Following the death of his parents, P.I.T. was formed by Connor as a way to cope with his sister, Piper, who has special abilities to talk to the dead. Alongside Connor and Piper, they are joined by Elliot the fanboy enthusiast, Lindsey the tech guy and bankroller and Morgan the occult specialist. Spooked premieres on Hulu and YouTube on Wednesday June 4th at 10am PT/ 1pm ET.
Here’s what Bryan Singer had to say:
It’s been a thrill to expand our digital portfolio with ‘Spooked’ on Hulu and collaborate with Felicia and her team. With ‘Spooked’ we developed an irreverent, character-driven series in the paranormal genre that we think fans will enjoy and connect with online.
And Felicia Day added:
Geek & Sundry is very proud to focus on a few key high-quality scripted shows this year. Our community really responds to smart, out-of-the-box content like this. Teaming up with Bryan and Bad Hat Harry has been a blast, ‘Spooked’ has been one of our most ambitious and fun productions to date.
Well we here at the UTF offices are positively enthused and you can bet we’ll be watching this next week. But what do my fellow fanboys and fangirls think? Is this your cup of tea? Could it be a worthwhile addition to your summer? Or are you going to avoid it altogether?
