Pick Greenlights Paranormal Show from Woodcut Media


Woodcut Media is producing the paranormal documentary series World’s Scariest Hauntings for the U.K.’s free-to-air channel Pick.

World’s Scariest Hauntings, which is deficit financed and distributed internationally by TCB Media Rights, is a ten-part paranormal docuseries that examines ghost stories around the world. The show delves into ten stories set in locations across the globe and features interviews with locals.

“The paranormal subject matter marks a first for Woodcut, and stories of ghostly manifestations have intrigued people for centuries the world over,” said Kate Beal, the CEO of Woodcut Media. “For this production, we have pulled together a strong film crew (as we know it’s not for the faint-hearted), and have selected some of THE most haunted locations, that we know will have viewers gripping their seats.”

“We were extremely excited when Woodcut presented the premise of World’s Scariest Hauntings to us,” said Stephen Ladlow, the director of Challenge, Pick and Real Lives. “Woodcut makes great, well-researched shows and Pick has a strong record in showing programs that deal with the paranormal and the unexplained. We are now looking forward to giving this show its world premiere at the heart of our schedule.”

World’s Scariest Hauntings is shaping up very well and has clear integrity and credibility, something a show like this needs to have for international buyers to love it as much as we all do,” said Jimmy Humphrey, the head of acquisitions at TCB Media Rights.
