Haunted Highway is a supernatural reality show that originally aired on Syfy in 2012. The show follows a team of investigators as they travel across America to explore legends and myths of paranormal activity on some of the country's longest highways. The team consists of Jack Osbourne, a paranormal investigator and the son of rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, his friend, and fellow investigator Dana Workman, and two other experts who have unique areas of expertise.

Throughout the first season, each episode recounts a new legend or paranormal phenomenon along the country's highways, from Route 66 to the Utah State Route 666, also known as the "Highway to Hell." Every investigation begins with an extensive background of the myth and lore surrounding the leg of the highway they will explore. They then move on to interview witnesses, investigate various sightings, and gather any evidence they can to try and explain what is happening.

The team uses a variety of advanced technologies such as night vision cameras, thermal imaging, EMF detectors, and other high-tech equipment to capture and document paranormal activity. They also utilize other traditional paranormal investigation techniques such as séances, EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) sessions, and walking through the dark, creepy spaces at night to see if anything happens. The show primarily investigates urban legends and ghost stories, but they also explore unexplained phenomena, creatures, and much more.

The show relies heavily on dramatizations and re-enactments to help tell the stories of the legends they are investigating. With careful editing and a suspenseful soundtrack, it creates a spooky atmosphere, enhancing the viewer's experience of watching the investigations unfold. Jack Osbourne and his teammates provide analytical insight and knowledge to the various theories of what could be causing the paranormal activity, which often leads viewers to form their own conclusions.

One episode during season one sees Jack and the team travel to Arizona to investigate the myth of the skinwalker, a Navajo legend of a witch who can transform into any animal. Another episode investigates the notorious Bigfoot sightings along an Oregon Highway. They also investigate the ghostly encounters of a lighthouse in Maine and the abandoned gold-mining town of Bannack, Montana.

One standout aspect of this show is Jack Osbourne's charisma and credibility. As a lifelong paranormal enthusiast and investigator, Jack has a natural ease as he guides viewers through the investigations. The show plays to his strengths – natural curiosity, intelligence, and fearlessness – making him an excellent frontman.

Overall, Haunted Highway is a fascinating show for anyone interested in legends and the paranormal. It's not a show for skeptics, but for those already passionate about these types of stories, it offers an engaging look at some of America's most mysterious and eerie legends. Despite the dramatic nature of the show to enhance the viewer's experience, the team still provides credible research and insights that make this reality show one of the best in the genre.

Haunted Highway is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on July 3, 2012.
