The cable science fiction outfit SCIFI Channel are expanding their Ghost Hunters TV series by adding a new hunter to their line-up, UFO Hunters. Airing on the SCIFI Channel in the USA on Wednesday January 30th 2008 at 10pm ET, the hour-long episode sets out to investigate claims of UFO sightings and alien abductions with the help of New York Strange Phenomena Investigators (aka NY-SPI).
Headed by Oliver Kemenczky and Ted Davis, and ably supported by researcher/investigator Dennis Anderson, NY-SPI brings their unusual skills to two alien sighting cases.
The channel told SFcrowsnest.com, "UFOlogists have always walked the fine line between science and fantasy and have often been a subject of ridicule. NY-SPI is a new breed of investigators who are using cutting-edge technology to legitimise the examination of evidence and separate genuine claims from works of fiction. In one case, the team must go to the bottom of the ocean to investigate a fireball that fell from the New Jersey sky. In the other, they interview eyewitnesses, including one man who claims to have been abducted, to investigate an unidentifiable object seen in the skies over two states, New York and New Jersey."
UFO Hunters is produced by Craig Piligian, Tom Thayer and Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television.
