|Wait - What Was That?|
Hawes has been in negotiations with two major television giants, HULU and Amazon Prime Video since his announcement in June. Hawes wanted a 13 episode season with a larger budget for production, editing, and of course, more wonderful ghost busting toys to entice spirits to make contact with the team.
Both HULU and Amazon Prime Video want more input and control on the cast of paranormal investigators. Both networks wanted Hawes to persuade Grant Wilson, co-founder of TAPS and investigator during the Ghost Hunters most popular years, to return to the program. They also want Kris Williams to return as well. The team needs a pretty face. (Sexest? Yes! But true? Yes!)
Wilson is mulling over the offer and perhaps he will commit to special appearances during high profile haunted locations. As of yet though, he has not come on board.
Kris Williams is another story. She is now living in Australia. Williams stated in print, on social media, and interviews that she would never return to Ghost Hunters. However, perhaps she was jaded from the bloodletting episode from Ghost Hunters International and with a fresh network at the helm, perhaps she will consider a new start. (After all, who doesn't need a paycheck?)
Former Ghost Hunter investigators Amy Bruni and Adam Berry snagged their own paranormal series titled Kindred Spirits slated to air on Destination America cable channel. However, the show is now moving to the TLC network, (Debut episode slated to air early October)
With Destination America channel losing out on Kindred Spirits, the cable channel executives approached Hawes and apparently offered a kings ransom for the rights to a new rebooted Ghost Hunters. The channel is a perfect fit for the series and would blend in nicely with the other paranormal shows already airing on the network.
Expect Hawes to make the announcement Halloween weekend that he is moving the Ghost Hunter series to the Destination America channel and new episodes will begin airing in 2017.
Good job.... Onto the next....
