Haunted Highway (originally called Paranormal Highway) is a paranormal investigation, reality television series, produced by BASE Productions, that began airing on the Syfy network 3 July 2012.

The series features two teams of investigators; Jack Osbourne,[1] (son of musician Ozzy Osbourne), investigator Dana Workman, and Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files investigators Jael de Pardo and Devin Marble.

On the 5th episode of the series, Osbourne announced that he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) and temporarily stepped down as host of the series.

On 22 April 2013 Syfy renewed the show for a 6 episode second season which premiered 27 November 2013.


The two teams drive across America's highways and back roads, investigating cases of various alleged cryptid sightings.[2] During the intro, Osbourne states that he has had in interest in the paranormal since he was a child and that the show takes a unique investigative approach whereby the teams film their own video footage and do not rely on camera crews.
