As a card-carrying raconteur of cheese, this bit of pop culture wonkiness from our pals over at Syfy Wire caught my eye and held it: Actors Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander of Lost Boys fame are reconnecting for a paranormal reality show which will play up on their vampire killing characters from director Joel Schumacher’s 1987 masterpiece. Titled Corey & Jamison’s Real Frog Adventures, this Truth 22 Production will reveal its delectable goodies on October 22 on Corey Feldman’s official YouTube channel at 9:30 PM EST, airing immediately behind the Child USA Awards. Enterprising fans will also be able to sneak a peek at the trailer for the new series.
Feldman, a Hollywood veteran, tweeted a tease of the show on October 16, carefully choosing his words about the new project: “Hey everybody, it’s Spooktober and I know this Halloween won’t feel the same for any of us: no parties, no candy, no trick or treating for many of us this year. So my good friend Jamison Newlander and I were thinking about what we might be able to do to make it special, so we came up with…”
The intrepid duo’s new show, which will have new episodes drop every four days until we hit October 31, kicks off in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where Feldman and Newlander will investigate the reputedly haunted Farrington House/Inn which dates back to the Civil War. Joining them on this exodus of cheesy fun and (we assume) terror is a paranormal researcher who will walk the two through the legends and the facts of the old Inn.
In a statement to us media types, the producers of Corey & Jamison’s Real Frog Adventures said that “Fans will witness the real-life brotherhood between Corey and Jamison as they take on both supernatural entities and real life evil…Although Jamison and Corey both know the sorrow and emptiness that comes with losing a brother on the field, in this exciting, entertaining and fun miniseries, the two are combining their vampire hunting skills and sensitivity towards the spiritual world, with some good old fashioned technology.”
Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander have worked together several times over the years since The Lost Boys, including such projects as Lost Boys: The Tribe (the film which also reunited the much-missed Corey Haim with his former Santa Carla vamp killers), Lost Boys: The Thirst, A Tale of Two Coreys and – for those of you with a long memory – an episode or two of The Two Coreys. The duo has undeniable chemistry and it’s always nice to see them reunite. Vents will feature a review of their first episode this Friday. Bring the crackers!
