Hailed by Jezebel as “the one dating show that actually works,” NAKED AND AFRAID OF LOVE follows 16 naked strangers ready to find love as they strip down and bare it all in the ultimate challenge that blends survival, romance and everything in between.

“We are thrilled to see audiences coming to discovery+ for NAKED AND AFRAID OF LOVE,” says Nancy Daniels, Chief Brand Officer, Discovery and Factual. “A hit franchise on linear, we were excited to explore and lean into what Naked and Afraid could be specifically on discovery+ and it is gratifying to see the creative and strategy payoff.

Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #NakedandAfraid and follow NAKED AND AFRAID on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest updates.

With endless miles of white sandy beaches and clear turquoise water, this unforgettable island paradise in the Philippines may seem like the perfect setting to fall in love, but don’t let this Garden of Eden fool you. With no food, water or clothes readily available, these 8 men and 8 women are both physically and emotionally vulnerable and forced to depend on each other.

From a sexually fluid Army veteran who’s known for his ‘take charge’ attitude and a PhD student from Honolulu who’s tired of her fixer-upper relationships, to a high school teacher looking for a ring on ‘that’ finger and a San Diego surf instructor who’s ready to spear fish, fend off wildlife and ride through this journey like the perfect wave, these stripped down singles each bring their own unique backgrounds, and relationship experiences to the table. First kisses, fights, and love triangles are on the horizon as the men and women move through the challenge and are introduced to others on the island. As the paradigm of how people traditionally fall in love is reversed, and awkward first meetings in their birthday suits ensue, the men and women journey through the stages of a courtship. All the while, figuring out if this other person has the potential to be their forever mate in the real world – and what they look like with their clothes on.

NAKED AND AFRAID OF LOVE is produced for Discovery by Renegade 83, an Entertainment One (eOne) company, with David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe and Jay Bienstock as executive producers. For Discovery, Joseph Boyle and Michael Gara are executive producers and Paola Espinosa is associate producer.

New Series: Real-Life Ghost Stories from Master of Horror Eli Roth Set to Scare on discovery+





New Series: Real-Life Ghost Stories from Master of Horror Eli Roth Set to Scare on discovery+
“Eli Roth Presents: A Ghost Ruined My Life” premieres Friday, October 8, exclusively on discovery+ during the streamer’s “Ghostober” event.
[via press release from Discovery, Inc.]
REAL-LIFE HORROR STORIES TOLD BY THE VICTIMS IN THE NEW SERIES “ELI ROTH PRESENTS: A GHOST RUINED MY LIFE”

BEGINS SCREAMING ON DISCOVERY+, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8
NEW YORK (September 20, 2021) – You may want to keep those lights on for ELI ROTH PRESENTS: A GHOST RUINED MY LIFE, a new series from the master of horror that features real-life ghost stories as told by the victims who came face-to-face with their demons and survived. Award-winning filmmaker Eli Roth has spent his whole life telling horror stories, but these may be the most terrifying yet. Launching with two episodes on Friday, October 8, exclusively on discovery+ during the streamer’s “Ghostober” event, the eight, one-hour episodes highlight the haunting untold stories of victims of the paranormal as they try to unpack the unexplainable causes of their emotional (and sometimes physical) trauma.

Taking an entirely new approach to storytelling, the series goes beyond the initial terrifying contact with the unknown. Every unique show aims to reveal the ravaged relationships, lost livelihoods and obliterated sense of self that has plagued the main subject since their first confrontation with a ghost, demon, dark entity or poltergeist. Equal parts horrific and evocative, A GHOST RUINED MY LIFE exposes audiences to the real-life stories of people dragged through hell and back as they struggle to rebuild their shattered lives.

“I was shocked to see how many people experience this phenomenon, and they were grateful to share their stories for the first time on camera,” said Roth. “It’s no joke – these people’s lives were ruined by the ghost, which seemed to be the spirit’s goal. They couldn’t work, they couldn’t sleep, they didn’t have the resources to move and if they did, the spirit often followed them. It’s a fascinating subject that I’ve never before seen explored in a series.”

“Who better to help tell these real-life haunted horror stories than Eli Roth,” added Matthew Butler, general manager, Travel Channel & Paranormal Streaming Content. “Eli is a master at his craft and working with him has been incredible. He has an unmatched ability to evoke the many layers of fear. Viewers will forget they are watching a television show and instead feel as if they are alongside the subject experiencing every moment. If you enjoy the thrill of being frightened, this is exactly what you want. Having Eli bring his talents to discovery+ this ‘Ghostober’ is an absolute honor.”

Eli Roth made his directorial debut in 2002 with the film “Cabin Fever;” his follow up titles, which include “Hostel,” “Hostel Part II,” “Knock Knock” and “Death,” have earned him critical praise and a reputation as a true innovator in the horror space. He also co-produces the new discovery+ series, THE HAUNTED MUSEUM with Zak Bagans, and hosts/produces the AMC series “Eli Roth’s History of Horror.” In the premiere episodes of A GHOST RUINED MY LIFE, it’s clear that Eli still has a deep affinity for horror.

The premiere episode introduces a mother and her young son who rent an old house in the country. She quickly senses the presence of an evil entity, and after a violent series of attacks, her battle ends with a shocking confrontation. In the second episode, dropping October 8, Roth follows a devastating tale of a loving couple that starts having issues after a sudden death in the family. They’re horrified to learn that grief isn’t the only thing pushing them apart. Evil visions and paranormal activity begin driving one of them to the point of madness and their entire family must fight to protect what remains.

Frightening Tales of Cursed Objects Are Brought to Life in New Scripted Horror Series





Frightening Tales of Cursed Objects Are Brought to Life in New Scripted Horror Series, “The Haunted Museum,” from “Ghost Adventures” Star Zak Bagans and Filmmaker Eli Roth

FRIGHTENING TALES OF CURSED OBJECTS ARE BROUGHT TO LIFE IN NEW SCRIPTED HORROR SERIES, “THE HAUNTED MUSEUM,” FROM “GHOST ADVENTURES” STAR ZAK BAGANS AND FILMMAKER ELI ROTH

Nine-Part Series Presents a Terrifying Anthology of Short Horror Films Inspired by the Haunted Artifacts in Zak Bagans’ Las Vegas Museum – Launching Saturday, October 2 on discovery+
NEW YORK (September 17, 2021) – Horror-loving fans get ready as renowned filmmaker Eli Roth and paranormal investigator and GHOST ADVENTURES host Zak Bagans team up in THE HAUNTED MUSEUM, a spine-chilling new scripted series that brings to life the terrifying tales of the world’s most haunted and cursed artifacts. Launching with two episodes on Saturday, October 2, exclusively on discovery+ during the streamer’s “Ghostober” event, the nine-episode series features a collection of short horror films inspired by the frightening relics on display in Zak Bagans’ Haunted Museum in Las Vegas. Each episode presents a chilling cinematic story of a ghoulish object from Bagans’ eerie collection, scripted and produced in collaboration with Eli Roth and featuring exclusive commentary from Bagans about its hellish history.

An enthusiast for all things haunted, Zak Bagans has amassed a collection of thousands of creepy artifacts from all over the world, exhibited across a sprawling 30-room, 14,000-square-foot mansion museum. Here, brave visitors come face-to-face with a plethora of spooky memorabilia that span paranormal legends, true crime, Hollywood pop culture and haunted history. But among these relics are a group of items that are particularly sinister, inducing nightmarish experiences – fainting spells, chills, convulsions, scratches and disturbing bad luck.

Now, these cursed objects take the spotlight in THE HAUNTED MUSEUM, as Zak Bagans and Eli Roth join forces to tell their ominous stories in a frightening format. Roth – the modern master of horror and creative force behind such films as “Cabin Fever” and “Hostel” – along with his accredited team of writers present the frightful tales behind Bagans’ most feared items through innovative and evocative horror shorts. Experience the supernatural scares behind Peggy the Doll, the Devil’s Rocking Chair, Charles Manson’s cursed television, an antique mirror with an evil attachment, the Westerfeld dollhouse, a wooden tribal cursed statue, “spiritual equipment” that may be a portal to a demonic dimension, the Demon House staircase and the infamous Dybbuk Box.

“While all of the collectables in my museum have dark and unusual backstories, these items are especially fearsome because of the intense, evil energy they contain,” said Bagans. “Their power is scary as hell, and I’ve never seen anything like it. Eli Roth is a mastermind at authentically evoking this terror and the very real fear brought on by these objects through his incredible visual storytelling. The horror is palpable. This is the scariest thing you will ever watch.”

“Never before have I been involved as a producer in a project this scary,” added Roth. “I believe this show could go down as one of the scariest anthology horror television shows of all time. I am so excited to bring these terrifying stories to homes in time for Halloween. Working with Zak has been a scream, he was so helpful in guiding the stories of these horrific objects that most people would be too scared to even look at. There has never been a show where you can see a terrifying story and then visit the real cursed object in person after, if you dare. I stand behind my claim this will be the scariest show you will watch this Halloween season.”

Yet all is not well within his own house, as his daughter begins to experience terrifying visions that she fears may be something incredibly evil. Following his discovery of a secret spell hidden within the dollhouse, the father embarks on his most dangerous course of action yet, using the spell and the power contained within the dollhouse in an attempt to raise the spirit of his dead wife. The ritual culminates in a terrifying night that finally reveals the dollhouse’s horrifying occupant and its true intentions.

David has always credited his close friends with helping him get to where he is today, and in appreciation for their support, David brings beloved friends Natalie Mariduena, Jason Nash, Nick “Jonah” Antonyan, Suzy Antonyan, and Todd “Toddy” Smith with him to Slovakia to meet his family.

DISCOVERING DAVID DOBRIK will document special moments with David’s family and friends, and more, as David and his friends later travel to some of the greatest global cities to learn from other cultures, create exciting new content and open up the world to his and Discovery’s audiences. And in his own special way, David will give back to the people he meets along the way and contribute to the communities he visits. The introductory mini-sode features David revealing the news of DISCOVERING DAVID DOBRIK to the Vlog Squad as he invites his friends on the adventure that will allow him to interview for his green card and later travel the world to meet and show gratitude to his supporters. The episode also includes David’s departure from the U.S. and arrival to Slovakia.
