It’s hard to believe that a cable channel that boasts four different ghost hunting shows would even employ a guy like Tracy Morgan. But they did. And they’re doing it again.
It was announced today that the stand-up comedian and 30 Rock star will return as the host of the hidden camera reality show Scare Tactics. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, it’s basically a combination of Candid Camera, Punk’d and Fangoria magazine.
In addition to host, Morgan will also serve as executive producer on the 13-episode order. “We’re ecstatic to be bringing back ‘Scare Tactics’ for another season to all our die-hard Syfy reality fans,” said Mark Stern, executive vp of programming, according to Hollywood Reporter. “Tracy has his finger on the pulse when it comes to comedy and having him on board as executive producer just adds another layer to the huge success of our show.”
In other words, over the last year Morgan has blown the hell up and SyFy needed to do something to keep him on their network.
