A Descent Into Darkness: ‘Terror In the Woods (wt)’ Commissioned By Destination America

- New series explores terrifying true stories of wilderness adventures gone very wrong -

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Destination America today announced that it has commissioned an all-new series Terror in the Woods (wt)(8 x 60′) with award-winning UK production company Wild Dreams Films. Production is currently underway.

Terror in the Woods (wt) investigates the most shocking unexplained paranormal encounters in the wild. From gator hunting in Louisiana's bayou to ice fishing in Illinois, and deer hunts in Montana, these are the real-life stories of people who embarked on an outdoors adventure - only to be scared out of the woods by ghosts, monsters, and other unexplained phenomena.

They came to discover the great outdoors, but something discovered them first. Venturing into the woods, lakes and mountains of America, the last thing they expected to experience was to come face to face with threatening paranormal entities. Do they panic and make a run for it? Or bunker down inside a cabin, waiting for what's next? How will they escape? Using shocking first hand interviews and cinematic drama reconstruction, these terrifying experiences will be brought to life as hunters become the hunted in the outdoors.

Additionally, the series has been signed by Distribution360, who will represent the series internationally having begun discussions with broadcasters and platforms about pre-sales in several markets and will be attending Realscreen Summit later this week for further meetings on the new title.

Terror in the Woods (wt) is produced by Wild Dream Films and Destination America. For Wild Dream Films, Stuart Clarke is executive producer. For Destination America, Cathy Garland is executive producer, Jane Latman is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, and American Heroes Channel.
