Just to preface, the show (unfortunately) has nothing to do with pinball. Figured I'd get that out of the way first. This is a bit of shameless promotion, but I'm pretty excited to share with you guys.
Long story made VERY short--on a whim, my close friend and his cousin did a skype interview for a TV show we never thought we'd be casted for. We were. Signed some scary looking contracts, and next thing we know, we're being shipped off to Pennhurst Asylum (officially known as Pennhurst State School and Hospital) in Spring City, PA. We're all hobbyist paranormal investigators, with myself being a hardline skeptic.
While I'm under NDA, I can't go into detail, I will say that it's a record breaking show premier with it being the longest consecutively shot ghost hunt on television (we slept in Pennhurst for 2 full weeks), and it's not all spook and scare. We did some other cool stuff that I'm fairly confident hasn't been done before on a show like this.
HOWEVER, being a dumbass pinhead, I couldn't let an opportunity like this go by without slipping in some pinball quotes peppered throughout. I haven't seen the final cut (so I'm not sure what'll actually make it onto TV), but I tossed in some quotes from High Speed (when we were testing out radios, for example), White Water, and Funhouse, because why the hell not.
Anyway, I genuinely hope you guys can tune in. I'm nervous as all hell, but I think it'll be fun for everyone. Plus how many people get this kind of opportunity? I think in my bio (which hasn't been published yet), I mention my pinball collection a few times.
The show premiers October 30th at 8pm on A&E.
