Boo! Get ready for a scare, reality TV fans, because Sci-Fi has announced its new reality lineup and it’s scary!
30 Rock’s Tracy Morgan has signed on to host the third season of Sci-Fi’s fan favorite, Scare Tactics. In this hidden camera show, unsuspecting people are set up by their loved ones to be the victims of an elaborate and frightening hoax, amidst the backdrop of Hollywood-style special effects.
Mind Control with Derren Brown will be coming back for season two, kicking off with an event that “must be seen to be believed.” Brown, who has been wowing British audiences, uses a combination of suggestion and psychology to predict and control human behavior in such a way as to make him look paranormal.
Additionally, Sci-Fi will be airing two pilots this season.
Brain Trust puts togethera band of geniuses known as “The Trust.” The Trust are enlisted by everyday people who then call on them to find creative solutions to problems. Their solutions are then put to the test toseehow they worked.
And, finally, a pilot of Estate of Panic will air. In this show, millions of dollars are hidden in a vast estate and seven strangers are enlisted to find the money. With Fear Factor producers at the helm, however, there are plenty of horrors awaiting the contestants at every turn, challenging them to see how badly they want that dough.
