Destination America Greenlights Comedic Paranormal Investigation Series ‘Ghost Brothers’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Destination America has greenlit “Ghost Brothers,” Variety has learned exclusively. A comedic take on ghost hunting, the unscripted six-part series showcases the first African-American paranormal investigation team on television.

“Ghost Brothers” is set to debut April 15 at 10 p.m.

The series follows best friends Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass and Marcus Harvey on a mission to uncover whether some legendary “haunted” houses are the real deal. All raised in religious households, Spratt, Mass and Harvey were taught that messing with the dead is dangerous business, but their own unexplained experiences piqued their fascination, driving them to find out how spooky the supernatural can be. “Ghost Brothers” is described as blending the group’s natural curiosity with comedic flair, offering a fresh, funny and unique take on the spirit world.

“We’re excited to join the Destination America family and prove that there can be a little humor in the unknown,” said Spratt. “But the best part about ‘Ghost Brothers’ is that this time, the black guys make it out of the haunted house alive!”

“Destination America is the leader in paranormal programming, and we are excited to bring diversity to this space with the very first African American ghost-hunting team on television,” said Jane Latman, general manager of Destination America. “Dalen’s, Juwan’s and Marcus’ personalities shine through in ‘Ghost Brothers,’ wearing their emotions on their sleeves in an incredibly relatable way during all of the fear, thrills and chills of investigating things that go bump in the night.”

Taking a jab at the recent uproar over lack of diversity, sparked by the Oscar nominations, Henry Schleiff, group president of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, and American Heroes Channel, added, “Anyone boycotting the Academy Awards because of the absence of minorities represented might well find a kindred spirit in ‘Ghost Brothers,’ featuring the first-ever African American ghost-hunting team … At Destination America, we make a concerted effort to create programming that reflects the diversity of all Americans, everywhere.”

“Ghost Brothers” hails from Pilgrim Media Group, the producers behind the hit series “Ghost Hunters,” which airs on Syfy in association with Crybaby Media. Craig Piligian and Mike Nichols are exec producers for Pilgrim, and Danny Passman for Crybaby. Destination America’s Fay Yu is also an exec producer.
