"Ghost Adventures" host Zak Bagans is developing a new television show called "Vampire Adventures" that will follow the lives of real-life vampires. The show will be hosted by vampire Father Sebastiaan, according to an announcement on Facebook yesterday.
"Vampire Adventures" is being developed by production companies My Tupelo Entertainment and Alfred Haber Television. The series was created by Zak Bagans and will be hosted by Master Fangsmith Father Sebastiaan. Bagans hosts the Travel Channel's hit paranormal series "Ghost Adventures" and Sebastiaan is the founder of the world's largest vampire community, the Sabretooth Clan.
"Ghost Adventures" began as an independent documentary film that first aired on the Syfy Channel on July 27, 2007 and is currently on its ninth season on the Travel Channel. The series follows paranormal investigators Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin as they explore alleged haunted locations. A tenth season is scheduled to air this fall.
"Vampire Adventures" will follow Sebastiaan as he travels all over the world to various destinations that are rich in vampire lore. No broadcasters are currently attached to the series.
"We felt that, because the stories told in the "Vampire Adventures" are drawn from around the world and across cultures, it made sense to take the series out to the international market at the same time as the US market," My Tupelo Entertainment president Michael Yudin said.
"Vampire stories date back to early times and can be found in many different cultures, and we are honored to be working with My Tupelo Entertainment in this unique co-development and distribution partnership to represent this brilliantly distinctive show to the international marketplace," Alfred Haber added.
Additionally, Bagans recently started production of a documentary film that will feature an alleged haunted house that he purchased earlier this year. Hollywood distribution companies are currently in a bidding war for the rights.
The small house on Carolina Street, in Gary, Indiana has over 800 pages of official police reports of odd occurrences that have been said to have happened there. A police captain with the Gary Police Department says he believes that the home is haunted. According to the police captain and various psychics, the house is infested with hundreds of ghosts and demons.
"If it's true that this home is a portal to Hell, then I want to go there and see what happens," Bagans said in an interview with TMZ.
Bagans purchased the house on January 29 and paid only $35,000 for the home. He says he'll announce the release date for the documentary soon.
The Ghost Adventures crew has investigated over a hundred locations all over the world. In nine seasons of the show, Zak, Nick, and Aaron have helped to provide answers to people that have witnessed and experienced paranormal phenomena.
