KAMLOOPS - A Kamloops couple is looking to get in on a traditionally American dominated market: the paranormal T.V. industry.

Jon and Karina Kozuska have been investigating and studying the paranormal for most of their adult lives, and are now hoping to host a new series called True North Paranormal.

Falkland-based Thunder Boyz Productions Inc. — which created the show Bushnell’s Trigger Effect — is producing the series. The paranormal T.V. sector has predominately been successful in American productions, and Thunder Boyz feels there is room and a need for a Canadian paranormal T.V. series.

“This is totally new territory for our production company,” Dean Trumbley, Owner of Thunder Boyz Productions Inc, says in a media release. “However, Jon and Karina Kozuska are a very knowledgeable and experienced couple in paranormal investigation and our company specializes in capturing live-action as it happens, it is a perfect match.”

The show filmed its first episode at the Vernon Towne Theatre and is lining up another two locations in the Okanagan and Thompson areas. A public pilot will be released in March 2017 to gather input and opinions from paranormal followers from throughout Canada, according to the release.

“We wanted to go a different route and get opinions and critique from the fans and paranormal experts in Canada before cutting an episode to submit to mainstream television networks,” Karina Kozuska says.

The goal is to have a pilot episode submittal ready by mid-summer of 2017 for various mainstream and specialty channels.

“At the end of the day it is the viewers and fans who determine success on T.V., so why not start there?” Jon Kozuska says.
