Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files
- 2 Seasons
Major networks have all been scrambling to find a paranormal team that can bring in viewers and tap into the widely popular ghost hunting and paranormal investigation programs on the air right now. Syfy Channel saw it fitting to back a paranormal team that is offering a unique perspective and investigative process. This team would be the heart of Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files. It would be their uncommon process of investigation, and rather eclectic team in general, that would make the show widely popular in a short time. The team is comprised primarily of six members, the leader of this group being one Ben Hansen. His background as a former investigator for the FBI, and before that being on an SVU task force in the state of Utah, has made his senses sharp and keen. Next on the list is Jael De Pardo, a skilled journalist. Her abilities throughout her career in determining the real story from a fake one has made her a valuable asset to the team. Next, is the scientist Bill Murphy. He is one of the leading experts in paranormal phenomena. He is the walking encyclopedia of the group, offering up information to help through almost every investigation. The final three members of the team are Austin Porter, Lanisha Cole and Devin Marble. They are the expert, the photographer, and the tech expert respectively. The premise for the show is that this expert team of investigators takes footage, photographs or other means of relaying a haunting or spirit and attempts to verify the information. Essentially, they are attempting to find any truth in the picture, the video or the story. The show's title, Fact or Faked, is the objective question of each episode and every particular investigation they do.
