Syfy developing spooky reality show with Mark Burnett

Syfy

Mark Burnett is teaming with “Celebrity Ghost Stories” producer Seth Jarrett to bring with a spooky new series to Syfy.

“School Spirits” will look at hauntings at colleges and high schools around the country.

Show, which is currently in development, will include interviews with real students, teachers, parents and staff that have witnessed paranormal activity at these institutions of learning.

“Paranormal encounters at high schools and colleges often become legendary stories spanning and touching generations,” said newly promoted Syfy original programming prexy Mark Stern, who also serves as co-head of content for Universal Cable Productions.

Jarrett Creative Group is behind the show; Burnett and Jarrett are exec producers.

Syfy is no stranger to spooky reality series, of course, having been behind shows such as “Ghost Hunters.”
