A little about GHOST TREK: From the author of the critically-acclaimed book KILL THE MUSIC comes GHOST TREK, an uncensored comic – horror series based around a paranormal reality show.
GHOST TREK follows the Paranormal Underworld Detective Society (PUDS) as they investigate haunts across the U.S. and abroad between tanning beds, babes, body-building, and bong hits – all the while risking life and limb capturing the undead and unexplained on video.
Principal photography for GHOST TREK: THE KINSEY REPORT was shot in four days in reality-style and POV high definition in Charlotte, NC, and its environs December 10-13, 2010. Additional photography and second unit were shot January – March, 2011. GHOST TREK was the first independent production granted permission to shoot footage inside the NASCAR Hall of Fame Executive Plaza.
GHOST TREK is lead by Dr. Zeke Wallace (Michael Melendez), a good-looking ex-chiropractor turned paranormal investigator, who is living in New York with his girlfriend, Shawna Leibowitz (Gia Allemand) who is also the show’s producer. Scary Carrie Carmichael (Christy Johnson), the “Living-Dead Roller-Girl”, pines away as the GHOST TREK case manager as Harvey Goldman, The Executive Producer, forbids her face time due to her freakish outward appearance.
The other PUDS investigators are: Barry ‘The Bomb’ Burkowski and Joey ‘Mayhem’ Moscone (affectionately called The Goon Squad), two ex-wrestlers from New Jersey who hung up their tights for a paying gig (Glenn Gilbertti and Scott Colton).The fashion-conscious psychic, Guy Swisher (Brett Gentile), is comedic genius incarnate. The team’s tech specialists and devoted stoners are Robbie (Michael Bortone) and Ray-Ray (Jonny Fairplay). Weasel is the kleptomaniac “emo” cameraman (Kevin Johnson). The ‘newbie’, Jules Partridge, (Julia Bullock) is the “investigator in training” chosen by the network marketing department.
In the pilot, the PUDS team travels to Aspen, Colorado to investigate a supposed “cursed” house where a young pageant girl, Tyler Rae Kinsey (Addy Miller), was choked to death with a jump rope.
Meanwhile, Shawna is fuming over Zeke’s out–of-control spending, especially now that she suspects he’s cheating on her. But Shawna’s forced to sit still for Zeke’s lunar escapades with Russian model Svetlana (Cora Deitz) as Harvey Goldman (Michael Plumides) says, “He’s trending.”
Creator Plumides sites cult shows such as THE VENTURE BROTHERS and THE MIGHTY BOOSH as inspiration.
GHOST TREK is also an amalgam of other concepts: Combining the camp of Kolchak: the Night Stalker, the dynamics of The X-Files, the social commentary of Clerks, the drama of Entourage, the humor of The Young Ones, and the zany hijinx of Scooby Doo, there’s no question GHOST TREK will be a hit with the Family Guy and/or Ghost Hunters crowd.
Described by Jason Tracey, writer and producer of USA’s Burn Notice as “promising and well-written.”
FILM THREAT.COM calls GHOST TREK “… Ridiculously entertaining…”
DREADCENTRAL.COM says GHOST TREK is “…the funniest bunch of paranormal researchers since Peter Venkman, Raymond Stanz, and Egon Spengler.”
GHOST TREK combines indie-horror with indie-comedy creating a crossover market appeal by incorporating reality stars and actors, plus masterful special effects make-up and graphic design.
Executive Producers are: Bill Walker and Anne Saunders
Produced and Directed by Michael G. Plumides, Jr. and Robert W. Filion
