Discovery-owned Travel Channel is prepping 10 episodes of paranormal format Fright Club from Los Angeles-based Painless Productions.

Shot in a studio, the series sees Jack Osbourne (pictured) — co-host of Travel’s Portals to Hell – and Ghost Brothers stars Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass, and Marcus Harvey watch paranormal videos together. Experts will join, weighing in on how to handle paranormal experiences, providing context and debunking myths.

Painless currently has a robust slate of paranormal projects at Travel, including The Holzer Files, which premiered in 2019, and 13 seasons of The Dead Files.

Fright Club follows in the footsteps of Travel Channel’s recent series The Osbournes Want To Believe, from New York-headquartered Meetinghouse Productions.

That series, which premiered in August, sees Jack attempt to make his parents — musician Ozzy Osbourne and The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne – paranormal believers by presenting a series of paranormal clips for the family to review and critique.
