LIVING Commissions Spin-off of Most Haunted Series

LONDON, April 26: Following the success of the Most
and Most Haunted Live series, LIVING has commissioned Antix Productions to
produce a new 8×1-hour spin-off series, Most Haunted: Midsummer
for premiere this summer.

The new series will visit picturesque historic villages
around England to investigate mysterious murders that may lie behind their
idyllic, tranquil exteriors. Presenter Yvette Fielding, Karl Beattie and
psychic David Wells will join Most Haunted Live historian Leslie Smith, as Smith attempts to uncover the previously
unexplored dark histories of these villages—many of which are built on
ancient burial or worship grounds where mysterious sightings and ghostly
goings-on have plagued their inhabitants for years. The series is executive
produced by LIVING’s commissioning editor Mark Sammon and Antix Productions’
Karl Beattie and Yvette Fielding.

Clare Hollywood, LIVING’s head of commissioning, noted: “Most
is one of LIVING’s most successful,
long-running commissions and this new series will bring a new twist to the
brand. Most Haunted: Midsummer Murders will reveal an unexpected, sinister side to the most innocent of
England’s villages, where the likes of Miss Marple and Bergerac would only have
just skimmed the surface.”
