What would happen if you got a bunch of your friends together to launch a paranormal investigation team? Would you stride in to haunted houses and abandoned asylums like badasses that knew exactly what you were doing? Or...would you be more like the crew from [Spooked](series:1477388), the new paranormal comedy webseries from Geek & Sundry? I'm guessing the latter.
The series has some pretty legit street cred in the world of geekdom: [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](movie:203942)'s Bryan Singer is the executive producer, as is the incomparably cool Felicia Day.
Want to know more? Here's the synopsis:
Starring Julian Curtis (Captured), Ashley Johnson (The Killing), Neil Grayston (Eureka), Derek Mio (Greek) and Shyloh Oostwald (In Time), “Spooked” follows the 'Paranormal Investigation Team' (P.I.T.) as they investigate phenomena at haunted locations across the country. It features the unpredictable, horrific and often comedic world of P.I.T. as they find themselves dealing with ghosts, aliens and other unexplainable happenings.
The pilot finds our ghost hunters investigating an inexorable poltergeist determined to ruin his daughter's marriage to her wife. Among the acclaimed guest stars are Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse) and Alison Haislip (Shameless) for the pilot episode, as well as Tom Lenk (The Cabin In The Woods), Constance Wu (Covert Affairs) and Nancy Linehan Charles (The Stepfather) later in the series.
“It’s been a thrill to expand our digital portfolio with ‘Spooked’ on Hulu and collaborate with Felicia and her team,” commented Bryan Singer. “With ‘Spooked’ we developed an irreverent, character-driven series in the paranormal genre that we think fans will enjoy and connect with online.”
Felicia Day added, “Geek & Sundry is very proud to focus on a few key high-quality scripted shows this year. Our community really responds to smart, out-of-the-box content like this. Teaming up with Bryan and Bad Hat Harry has been a blast, ‘Spooked’ has been one of our most ambitious and fun productions to date.”
Spooked launched Wednesday (so yesterday, if you have found yourself trapped in a wibbley wobbly ball of timey wimey stuff and don't know what day it is), and each episode will be released every Wednesday at 10am PST/1pm EST. Season One is a short one, just four 22-minute episodes, but if it goes well, we might see a longer Season Two.
