Destination America resurrects “A Haunting”
New Dominion Pictures’ paranormal docu-series A Haunting is heading to Destination America for its fifth season, after an initial four season run on sister network Discovery Channel.
Viewer demand led to the show’s fifth season on Destination America, which premieres on October 12 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
The series uses first-person accounts to profile the story of one family’s paranormal encounters, from children to pets. The October line-up includes episodes on bloody visions, haunted houses and exorcisms encountered by families across the U.S. Paranormal investigators, priests, shamans, and “psychic mediums” provide commentary.
“From the Salem witch trials to the Amityville horror story, Americans have always been transfixed by the supernatural and phantom phenomena,” said Marc Etkind, senior VP of content strategy for Destination America. “A Haunting possesses a whole new collection of campfire stories to send a cold shiver tingle down viewers’ spines and teach them straight from the source how shock and sheer terror can take their toll on a person.”
For New Dominion, Nicolas Valcour and Jim Lindsay are executive producers, and Larry Silverman is co-executive producer. For Destination America, Thomas Cutler is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior VP of production, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
