Pilgrim Studios, the studio behind the popular “Ghost Hunters” franchise, has put out a casting call for a paranormal investigator. It doesn’t say that the casting is specifically for “Ghost Hunters,” but considering the breaking news recently that Britt Griffith, Amy Bruni and Adam Berry would not be returning to the show, to join Jason Hawes and the rest of the team investigating, it is likely that there is an opening or two.
“Ghost Hunters” has been one of the highest rated series on the Syfy Channel since it debuted in October 2004. The series has its tenth anniversary show and 200th episode coming up this season.
There has been a lot of speculating about former team members coming back to the show, either to celebrate the show’s upcoming anniversary or as replacements for the departing Griffith, Berry and Bruni. Fans can still see the popular duo in episodes for the upcoming season that have already been filmed.
The former team member names being tossed around include Grant Wilson, KJ McCormick, Dustin Pari and Kris Williams. Williams posted this response today on her Twitter and Facebook pages, “Yes, Amy and Adam have decided to leave Ghost Hunters... No, I will not be returning.”
Interested applicants have until June 13 to apply either on Pilgrim’s web site or through email. Paranormal investigating experience doesn’t weigh as heavily on candidates as much as interest in the supernatural, an outgoing personality and what Pilgrim describes as “unique skills to bring to the team.”
Those interested in the position must also be at least 18 years of age, a legal resident of the United States and be available to travel for approximately three weeks per month, starting in June. They must also include a photo and a reason why they should be considered for the position.
Aside from the “Ghost Hunters” franchise, Pilgrim Studios also handles a number of other shows including “Killer Contact,” “The Wil Wheaton Project,” “Haunted History” and “Dirty Jobs.”
