Just learned this while prepping another article: Warehouse 13‘s Allison Scagliotti, who last Halloween helped Destination Truth‘s Joshua Gates host a 6-hour live episode of Ghost Hunters, will join Gates yet again, this time for the special live episode of his own show, Destination Truth, which searches for the legendary Banshee in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day. As Allison hasn’t said she’d pick me up on the way there, I guess I’ll be watching on my couch with a Guinness in hand.
From the press release:
Actress Allison Scagliotti will join the team on Destination Truth: Live from Ireland – The Search for the Banshee Ghost, a four-hour special episode that will take Josh Gates and team to Ireland for their very first live investigation. Best known to Syfy fans as Claudia on the immensely popular series Warehouse 13, Scagliotti is also no stranger to live television or overnight adventure: she fearlessly served as co-host of last year’s Ghost Hunters Halloween Live event.
This special episode of Destination Truth will air from 7-11pm (ET/PT) on Thursday, March 17. In addition to Scagliotti, the team will also welcome three veteran guest investigators: Kris Williams and Barry FitzGerald (Ghost Hunters International), and Jael de Pardo (Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files, Destination Truth).
In Destination Truth: Live from Ireland – The Search for the Banshee Ghost, Gates and his team will brave the crumbling ruins of Duckett’s Grove Castle in County Carlow, Ireland, in search of the truth behind the legend of the banshee. Today, many County Carlow locals claim to have witnessed hearing the banshee’s unmistakable wail and seeing glimpses of an ethereal woman stalking the grounds of the 200 year-old historic ruins of Duckett’s Grove Castle. Armed with equipment, expertise and, as always, humor, Josh and team will attempt to solve the mystery behind this age-old legend.
New episodes of Destination Truth will return starting Tuesday, March 22 @ 9pm (new night and time).
Destination Truth is Executive Produced by Brad Kuhlman for Ping Pong Productions (1000 Places to See Before You Die, Celebrity Rehab, FM Nation). Josh Gates, Erin Ryder and Christopher Lore will serve as co-executive producers.
