Jack Black’s (School of Rock) Electric Dynamite and Shine America have started production of Ghost Ghirls, a new web comedy series. According to Deadline the show centers on two young female ghost investigators who try to solve various paranormal mysteries whilst at the same time attempting to convince their clients that paranormal activity really exists and they are the real deal.
The show was originally developed for TV and will be a spoof of paranormal shows such as Medium and Ghost Whisperer. It will be directed by Jeremy Konner (Funny or Die’s Drunk History) with Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci (improv show BEANS) starring as the two female ghostbusters. Jack Black, Jake Johnson (21 Jump Street), Molly Shannon (The Five-Year Engagement) and Jason Schwartzman (I Heart Huckabees) are all set to make cameo appearances.
“Ghost Ghirls is the funniest idea for a TV show that we’ve seen since I’ve been in the business,” says Jack Black. “Jeremy Konner is an electrifying director, and Amanda and Maria are dynamite comedic talents.”
Ghost Ghirls is set to debut in 2013 on Yahoo Screen.
