To kick off their Halloween-themed “Weekends to Die For” that will run throughout October, the Travel Channel will premiere a new original miniseries called Making Monsters, and see the return of Ghost Adventures and the debut of the new original detective vs. psychic series The Dead Files.
The 4-part one-hour miniseries Making Monsters will follow Ed and Marsha Edmunds, the co-owners of Distortions Unlimited, a Mom and Pop store that specializes in the creation of animatronic beasties and haunted house designs for the amusement industry. Their creations include 8-foot Godzilla-like moving monsters, green-gook spitting aliens, and guffawing Santa Clauses. Assisting them in their work is renowned movie monster creator Jordu Schell, best known for his work as a sculptor and conceptual artist on films like Avatar, Predators, The Mist, 300, and Galaxy Quest to name but a few.
Making Monsters airs on October 2, 2011 at 9PM ET/PT on the Travel Channel.
Other “Weekends to Die For” selections on the Travel Channel include the return of Ghost Adventures (Fridays at 9PM ET/PT) and the new original detective vs. psychic series The Dead Files (Fridays at 10PM ET/PT). The month culminates with a special Halloween-themed â€œWeekends to Die Forâ€ block of programming featuring â€œBizarre Foods Halloween Specialâ€ and â€œHalloween Crazy.â€
