BWW TV: Project Ghostlight Sneak Peek

"PROJECT GHOSTLIGHT" the new series pilot from SchoonerScout Productions has been named an Official Selection in the fourth annual
New York Television Festival (NYTVF) held September 12-17, 2008 at New World Stages in New York and BroadwayWorld.com has a sneak peek at this new and unique show!

"It's a huge honor, and also an excellent opportunity. We're proud of what we created, and we're excited to share 'Ghostlight' with the public. We think TV audiences will be surprised by what we found," say Steve Maihack and Michael Todd Cohen, the show's creators and hosts.

"PROJECT GHOSTLIGHT" presents a promising new view on the theatres of old in the United States, unveiling centuries of buried stories by illuminating the ghosts of America's past.

More than just a history lesson, "GHOSTLIGHT" includes an overnight stay in the theatre for three up-and-coming actors, calling out the spirits uncovered during research of the space. Episode stars: Ryan Serhant from As The World Turns, Stephanie Carey from The Education of Max Bickford, Allie Schulz - a finalist on Grease: You're the One That I Want and veteran actor Philip Bosco from Damages as the Narrator.

The series pilot was born out of a desire for the historic theatres of America to have a presence on television. What has followed is a show that combines both documentary and reality. When asked to describe the show's overall tone Maihack and Cohen commented: "'Project Ghostlight' offers up a piece of the past, a better understanding of our present, an undeniable rush of excitement in the telling of the tale and the ever-present sense of danger in the exploration of the paranormal."

As part of the NYTVF "PROJECT GHOSTLIGHT" will receive full pilot episode hosting on www.MSN.com and screenings open to the public at New World Stages, New York. Schedule details will be posted online when they become available later in the month. For More Information on "PROJECT GHOSTLIGHT" now visit: www.projectghostlight.com.
