UK-based indie prodco Woodcut Media, part of the Anthology Group, has been commissioned by the Sky-owned free-to-air channel Pick to produce Paranormal Caught on Camera, with DRG providing deficit financing and worldwide distribution.

The 6 x 60-minute docuseries follows paranormal experts as they attempt to capture evidence of supernatural activity on camera, visiting different, well-known haunted locations.

People who provide first-hand narratives of encounters with the paranormal will work with a panel made up of scientists, believers and skeptics who will examine the evidence to look for truth behind these claims.

Paranormal Caught on Camera is executive produced by Marvyn Benoit, commissioning editor at Sky, and Matthew Gordon, EP at Woodcut.

“Woodcut take great pride in the shows they make, and Pick has a strong history of showing programs that deal with the unexplained. We are looking forward to launching this show later this year,” said Benoit in a statement.

“Exploration of all things paranormal never ceases to wane,” added Gordon. “In this series, we have taken a serious investigative approach and uncovered some truly exciting and inexplicable images, as well as footage caught on camera that we know will intrigue viewers the world over.”

Paranormal Caught on Camera is currently in production and is scheduled to premiere in May on Sky’s Pick.
