'Supernatural' Spin-Off in the Works


It looks like Sam and Dean aren't the only stars of Supernatural. Ed Zeddmore and Harry Spangler, the stars of Ghostfacers, will soon take center stage as they appear in their own show. The spin-off, however, comes in the form of a web series which will initially run as 10 three-minute episodes on The CW website, according to Variety.


Supernatural fans have come to know Ed and Harry as the boys from the website Hell Hound's Lair. Both are self proclaimed "professional" paranormal investigators who appear on their so-called reality TV series Ghost Ghostfacers, which was featured in the episodes "Hell House," "Ghostfacers," and "It's A Terrible Life."


The Supernatural spin-off will follow the Ghostfacers as they investigate haunted occurences, shot documentary-style. CSI: NY's A.J. Buckley and Travis Wester will reprise their roles as the Ghostfacers, and will also be writing the webisodes. Brittany Ishibashi (E-Ring) and Austin Basis (Life Unexpected) round out the Ghostfacers team.


"It felt like the nature and style of what they do with their show-within-a-show would be fun to see in new media," said Wonderland TV topper Peter Johnson. "It's a fun, subversive way to allow these characters to play in the margins."


Though production is ongoing in Los Angeles, a premiere date has yet to be announced. According to Variety, the first installment revolves around a theater haunted by the specter of a starlet, played by Nip/Tuck's Kelly Carlson.


Eric Kripke will serve as executive producer with Peter Johnson, Jeff Grosvenor and Phil Sgriccia.

Heh, that should be fun.
But if this is a test of whether to make a real spin-off show, I don't think Ghostfacers is the way to go. These guys are funny, but they're not compelling enough to base a whole show on. I'd like to see them as supporting characters in a proper SPN spin-off, though.
As for the main characters, real hunters please. Bobby: The Early Years, or something. Maybe some women hunters this time - I mean, how great were Ellen and Jo?
