Here’s the press release from loyal reader Joshua:

Asheville native, and paranormal investigator, Joshua P. Warren is a cast member on the Travel Channel’s new series, Paranormal Paparazzi, that debuts September 28, 2012, at 7pm.

Warren, who will appear on every episode, is one of six reporters sent around the country to explore strange activity in a fast-paced, fun forum. He invites the public to attend a premiere party, on September 28, 2012, 6pm, at the Wild Wing Cafe at 161 Biltmore Avenue, to watch the first episode with him and hear crazy behind-the-scenes stories. Artifacts from some of his travels, like his recent trip to Transylvania, in Romania, are on display in his Asheville Mystery Museum, in the basement of the Asheville Masonic Temple, and can be viewed by taking his new “Asheville Vampire & Occult Tour,” that kicks off October 6, 2012, with Warren and co-creator Tadd McDivitt leading the tour. Details are at:

“This has been an amazing year,” says Warren. “Paranormal Paparazzi has been called the TMZ of the paranormal. We’re based in a news room in Manhattan, and our ‘editor-in-chief,’ Aaron Sagers, sends us on missions. Perhaps the greatest thing about the show is its sense of humor. We had a blast!”

The show is Executive-Produced by Zak Bagans, creator of the popular Ghost Adventures TV series that has aired on the Travel Channel for six seasons, and enters its seventh this month. Here’s how the Travel Channel describes the show:

The all-new original series Paranormal Paparazzi features eight half-hour episodes, each of which follows Aaron Sagers’ (journalist, pop culture enthusiast, editor-in-chief of the Paranormal Pop Culture blog) hand-picked team of reporters as they travel around the country tracking down the most current, bizarre and unsolved paranormal stories. As Sagers’ team reveals their findings in the fast-paced newsroom, the group reviews and assesses whether or not the stories are bona fide or bogus. Through the lens of each reporter, viewers will travel to New Orleans and experience Will Ferrell’s haunted trailer, a UFO sighting at the Jersey Shore, a teenage exorcism squad in Arizona, a zombie survival camp in New Jersey and more.

“All this is just in time for the Halloween season,” Warren notes. “I hope everyone will come party with me on Sept. 28, then come take our new Vampire & Occult Tour to see the goodies I’ve brought back to the Museum, like an antique crucifix from Transylvania and a remnant of Vlad the Impaler’s castle.”
