PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Syfy says it is developing a new reality series about U.S. schools that are alleged to be haunted.

The hourlong series from executive producers Mark Burnett and Seth Jarrett is called "School Spirits" and will tell supposedly true ghost stories in colleges and high schools across the country. The stories will be told in first person narratives through the testimonials of real students, teachers, parents and staff who have encountered the paranormal activity, Syfy said in a synopsis.

"Paranormal encounters at high schools and colleges often become legendary stories spanning and touching generations," Mark Stern, Syfy's president of original programming and co-head of content for Universal Cable Productions, said in a statement Friday. "We're very excited to partner with Mark and Seth as they bring these compelling, firsthand stories to life."
