Spirit Seekers is a Ghost Comedy half hour series about a group of Adventurers in search of answers to one of life’s greatest mysteries. The Afterlife. Armed with the latest in high tech gadgetry including Proximity detectors, Electronic Voice Recorders and EMF indicators, they’re capable of detecting oscillating frequencies, increased light intensity, and subtle changes in ion fields. They’re not scientists. They’re highly trained and highly motivated Spirit Seekers who are under the mistaken belief that they actually know what they’re doing.
Spirit Seekers parodies the ever popular “Ghostbusters” culture. It crosses the lines by infusing real world elements with situational comedy. It’s like a direct spinal tap designed to tickle your funny bone when it isn’t scaring the bejeezus out of you.
