In conjunction with the airing of the 100th episode of hit CW series Supernatural, the CW Network and the Warner Bros are launching the web premiere of Ghostfacers.
This new original shortform series/brand extension of the hit CW/Warner Bros. Television action-drama “Supernatural” – is set to premiere Thursday, April 15, on CWTV.com. The debut of the “Ghostfacers” digital series, starring AJ Buckley and Travis Wester as the world’s greatest self-proclaimed ghost hunters on a quest for the paranormal, coincides with the broadcast of the 100th episode of “Supernatural,” starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, on The CW (Thursdays 9:00–10:00 p.m. ET/PT).
This premiere will be followed by two additional episodes each Thursday for the next four weeks, for a total of 10 episodes. Each episode is approximately three to four minutes in length. On Monday, June 7, all 10 episodes of “Ghostfacers” will migrate from CWTV.com to TheWB.com.
On the heels of a truly excellent Convention this past weekend in Los Angeles full of guests and activities (Creation’s “Salute to Supernatural”) we are pleased to inform you about the launch of the all-new Ghostfacers website. In last week’s episode of Supernatural, “It’s a Terrible Life”, the Ghostfacers make another brief appearance via their website.That website is now a fully functional sandbox for all to play in.It’s a tongue-in-cheek presentation that fans of the Ghostfacers, as well as curious onlookers, will find to be humorous and fun.
The Ghostfacers are characters whose founding members, Ed Zeddmore and Harry Spangler, were first introduced on Supernatural in the season one episode, “Hell House.”They were presented as a slight spoof of the one-hour weekly reality show currently airing on the SciFi Network, Ghost Hunters, where a group of fairly ordinary people moonlight to understand seemingly unexplainable disturbances.Interestingly enough the Ghost Hunters, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, have acknowledged the light-hearted spoof done on Supernatural and fans have rallied to have a cross-over appearance of both Ghost teams.
Supernatural is the saga of brothers Sam and Dean Winchester, who traverse the country in their 1967 Chevy Impala, blasting classic rock through the speakers, and hunting all sorts of ghosts, demons, and otherworldly entities.The show does an outstanding job of balancing horror, scares, drama and comedy.For those moments when the show detours into some comical relief, the Ghostfacers have become the ideal vehicle.Following their season one appearance where they associated themselves with the Hellhounds Lair, they returned late in season three on the episode titled appropriately enough “Ghostfacers” and introduced additional members. They included Ed’s sister Maggie Zeddmore (played by Brittany Ishibani), Kenny Spruce (played by Austin Basis) and Alan Corbett (played by Dustin Milligan, who has since moved on as Ethan Ward on 90210 after Corbett’s untimely demise).Harry and Ed are portrayed respectively by Travis Wester and A.J. Buckley, who is better-known as Adam Ross on CSI:NY.Their comedic chemistry together is quite entertaining and serves as a diversion among the dramatically serious mythology that the series ventures into and is built upon.At the time of their second appearance there was even serious talk of a possible spin-off series.
Be sure to check-out the all-new www.Ghostfacers.com website where you can watch new Facers videos, find out more about the team, leave the Facers a note on their blog, and much more. See extended versions of Ed & Harry’s training videos from last week’s episode – including an introduction to their latest fighting style, “GMA” (Ghost Martial Arts). This site will continue to evolve over the next few months, so make sure to check back often to see what’s new… Stay Razor!
SUPERNATURAL airs Thursdays, 9pm on The CW.In addition, fans should know that the Supernatural Entertainment Weeklyfeature story they were promised (which had to be postponed due to other breaking news) is finally running in this week’s issue, which will hit the stands April 3.
