“Ghost! Ghostfacers! We face the ghost when others will not. We're ghost, Ghostfacers! Staying in the kitchen when the kitchen gets hot!”
Need I say more? Fans of Supernatural will know this as the anthem for one of the greatest ghost hunting groups in the history of the world, Ghostfacers, and Warner Bros. TV (the company that produces Supernatural) must feel the same way as they’ve decided to give Ghostfacers their own web series.
The series, named after the group, will be produced by McG's Wonderland shingle and Warner Bros. TV as 10 three-minute episodes to initially air on the video-on-demand website TheWB.com and later on The CW’s website.
Says Wonderland big-wig, Peter Johnson;
"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. It's a fun, subversive way to allow these characters to play in the margins."
I, for one, couldn’t be more excited. There’s no way they could be doing this for any reason but they love these characters as almost everyone in Ghostfacers already has a steady job. A.J Buckley is rocking out CSI:NY, Travis Wester has some Bones under his belt and Austin Basis is on the new CW show Life Unexpected.
After seeing these guys in the first season of Supernatural, I love that they’ve continued to pop up in episodes throughout the later seasons. Now that they have their own web series, I’ll be sure to tune in and it looks like they’ve already gotten their first mission.
The first installment will follow the Ghostfacers as they delve into a theater that is said to be haunted by one of its fallen actresses (played by Nip/Tuck's Kelly Carlson).
Warner Bros. and The CW are further proving just how committed they are to Ghostfacers by announcing that they’ll also be uploading gag reels, behind-the-scene videos and more mythology to the Ghostfacers website, Ghostfacers.com.

Am I the crazy one or is anyone else excited to see what comes from this? While I’m not a big fan of web series because of their short run-time, I’ll have to make sure and check these out. It’s the law.
While no date has been announced, we’ll be sure to let you know when you can see the first episode of Ghostfacers on the web.
