New York-based prodco MY Entertainment has penned a development deal with Zak Bagans (pictured), television host and creator of the Travel Channel series Ghost Adventures.

Among the projects in development between the two parties – which already work together on Ghost Adventures - is the series Pups on Parole, which follows a Las Vegas program that pairs female prisoners with dogs from an animal sanctuary.

A second project in development is Flight Club, which centers on Las Vegas’s model airplane clubs, which build, fly and battle replicas of historic planes and drones.

“From the minute I saw Zak’s self-financed, self-made documentary Ghost Adventures back in 2007 I knew I wanted to be in business with him,” said Michael Yudin, CEO of MY Entertainment, in a statement. “He’s not only incredibly smart but he’s also multi-talented in all aspects of successful hit programming, being as creative and charismatic behind the camera as he is on-screen.”

Bagans added: “My passion for the paranormal is equal to that of television production and development. Michael and I formed a powerful relationship back in 2007 that has proven clear success through our number one-rated series and other joint ventures.

“The opportunity to grow with MY Entertainment in this latest exciting phase of the company’s history and to be behind the creation of more programming in and out of the paranormal genre is hugely rewarding,” he said.
