An exclusive over at The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that a new unscripted haunted house reality series is heading to ABC. Details surrounding the unnamed series are being kept a secret but the project has been sold by Warner Bros. president of unscripted reality and programming, Mike Darnell. Prolific “Insidious” producer, Jason Blum and his Blumhouse productions are slated to be the project’s executive producer.

More details came thanks to Variety, “Variety has confirmed that the project currently has a pilot order at the Alphabet and will deal with haunted houses, a seemingly endless area of focus for nonfiction cable nets, with Travel Channel, Syfy and others offering haunted house fare.”

According to THR, the collaboration between ABC and Blum “…marks a reunion with ABC, where Blumhouse produced the found-footage horror series 'The River' with 'Paranormal Activity' director Oren Peli in early 2012. Though that project ultimately was short-lived, the company has continued to beef up its horror portfolio, with franchises that include 'The Purge' and 'Insidious.'”

We'll keep you updated on any more developments but what are your thoughts on this show's potential?
