Toronto-based content-creation company Bristow Global Media (BGM) has announced further deals for its slate of original paranormal programming, Haunted Hospitals and Paranormal 9-1-1.
Haunted 25Jan2019
Haunted Hospitals (13 x 60 mins) explores paranormal activity inside hospitals, nursing homes, morgues and medical institutions. Based on first-hand accounts by medical professionals and patients, these close encounters with unexplained phenomena are not one-off events, but a global pattern of paranormal activity experienced in hospitals across the world.

The 13 x 60 mins Paranormal 9-1-1 delves into the apparently high number of 911 emergency calls that lead to paranormal encounters. The real-life stories are told by the police, firefighters and paramedics who have responded to 911 calls with a terrifying difference.

Both series have been acquired by Travel Channel in the US and the Crime + Investigation channel in Australia while Haunted Hospitals has been picked up by Discovery’s TLC Channel in Germany, Planète+ France and Pan Asia subscription service Celestial Tiger Entertainment.

Haunted Hospitals and Paranormal 9-1-1 were produced and created by BGM’s development team —led by president and CEO Julie Bristow; vice-president of content Marlo Miazga; and Sean Connolly, vice-president of development — and were commissioned by Blue Ant Media for its T+E channel in Canada.

These latest deals follow the pre-sale last year to Discovery’s Quest Red in the UK and Ireland upon its MIPTV 2018 launch. All deals were brokered by Kew Media Distribution which BGM became a part of in 2017.

“The paranormal may not be explainable, but there’s apparently no mystery about the world’s fascination with unexplained phenomena, as these latest global sales for Haunted Hospitals and Paranormal 9-1-1 show,” Bristow remarked. “We’re particularly pleased to have closed our first deal with Travel Channel, since growing BGM’s business in the US is one of our core ambitions.”
