Just when I thought it was safe to pick up the remote, I read an article about a pilot for another ghost hunting show: Ghost Chicks.
Whatdya think? The photo suggests Charlie’s Angels meets Ghost Hunters. It’s so ridiculous and obvious I may have to watch if the pilot gets picked up and a series is released.
And which channel might run it that doesn’t yet have a ghost hunting show?
Hmmm…Lifetime, Oxygen, and Bravo are the obvious choices. (This is strictly me speculating. Nowhere has this been written.)
But, come on. The title aside (which screams “Estrogen!” by itself), it became immediately evident to me they know who their target audience is when I checked out their About page.
I mean, when the very first sentence is “‘Ghost Hunters’ meets ‘The View.'”….um, I don’t know too many men who watch The View. Not on a regular basis. (Except maybe The Soup‘s Joel McHale, but I think he’d plead he has to for job purposes. Uh huh. Whatever helps you sleep at night, Joel.)
And then there’s this blurb/synopsis about the show, which I also pulled from their About page:
“Ghost Chicks” offers the audience the same “boo factor” that is the cornerstone of any ghost hunting show, but gives the audience something new… The psychic angle, the resolution for the people at each dwelling, the discussion and most importantly the female perspective! Our motto is: “Investigate, Instruct, Resolve”.
The female perspective…isn’t that Kris Williams and Amy Bruni’s jobs on Ghost Hunters?
Okay, enough of me being snarky.
Psychic medium Amber Anderson and Karen Timper, an experienced paranormal investigator, will head the cast…er, I mean investigation team. Stephanie Albanese (video technology), Kristina Rugnetta (audio technology) and Mary Foley (photograph technology) round out the group.
Who knows, maybe they will bring a fresh take. Just as long as they don’t try to pass off any fakes!
Now that would be a fresh show…one that actually finds bonafied proof of a ghost! Maybe that’s what these ladies will do –since no other male-lead ghost hunting show has done it.
