Stranded premiered on SYFY on February 27, 2012. This series uses the same stripped-down first-person method to document an unconventional - and terrifying - paranormal and psychological experiment in which participants are stranded at haunted location for a week and must record the entire experience themselves. Jason Blum, producer of the Paranormal Activity movie franchise, Insidious and Sinister, serves as an executive producer; as does Josh Gates, the host and co-executive producer of Syfy's popular series Destination Truth. Each of the six hour-long episodes features the self-recorded footage of a diverse group of everyday paranormal enthusiasts. The footage from the subjects' cameras is supplemented by strategically-placed security cameras at each location, creating a suspenseful, completely unscripted first-hand account of each group's stay.
