Haunted: An Audio Drama trailer released

HAUNTED is a serialised audio drama that tells eight stories split across 32 episodes. A horror-adventure series, creator Jamie Evans describes the show as “Doctor Who with the horror dialled up.”

The show tells the story of Abigail Corbin (played by  Isabella Barbieri), an enthusiastic paranormal podcaster who finds her town beset by a mysterious radio signal which seems to constantly change the frequency on which it is broadcast. Those who hear this mysterious signal, begin to lose touch with reality and embark on a spiral of depression, uncontrollable rage and inexplicable delusion. In a desperate attempt to find answers, she seeks out retired paranormal investigator James Hunter (played by Evans), now a drunken and reclusive oddball. Together, the duo embark on a series of investigations that will take them to the very edge of our known reality and into confrontation with dark secrets and supernatural forces. The X-Files meets Doctor Who in this world-bending, adventurous, occasionally comedic series that is sure to grip listeners from its very first episode. HAUNTED begins airing on 20th March on Spotify, iTunes and Audible.

Jamie Evans, creator of the show, originally began working on the concept over a decade ago during his time at university. Originally penned as a TV series, it soon became clear that the show was simply too expensive to be produced on an independent budget. “The idea never left me” Jamie explains, “I kept toying with it over the intervening years, altering it, trying to play with the formats and see what we could do. Impala Films had just come off of producing our first feature film, Candy Hart and the Fire of Catalan, when the UK government announced the first lockdown. We were only allowed to go out for exercise once a day back then so to make it last, I loaded up a whole bunch of audio dramas on my phone and would go for 2-3 hour long walks. One day it suddenly hit me; audio drama was the perfect viable medium for HAUNTED. The budgets needed are much lower with audio drama as you aren’t building sets or costumes or anything like that. It was also COVID-friendly as we could potentially bring actors in one at a time and record them separately.”
