This Ghostober, acclaimed director Eli Roth is delivering more hours of his quintessential brand of horror and mayhem to Travel Channel viewers in the United States with two new series, 'Eli Roth Presents: My Possessed Pet' premiering September 30 and 'Urban Legend' premiering October 28.

On Halloween night, Eli teams up with paranormal investigator and executive producer Zak Bagans to debut a special two-hour cinematic collaboration with 'The Haunted Museum: 3 Ring Inferno'. The two new shows and the Halloween night special will premier on the Travel Channel and will be available to stream on-demand on Discovery+.

Eli said, "I'm absolutely thrilled to grow my incredible collaboration with Travel Channel, Discovery+ and Zak Bagans. They've given me the freedom to explore new creative avenues for scary stories and to bring fresh new directorial voices to the screen. I set out to help make this Ghostober the scariest year ever. You have been warned."

Eli, along with his highly skilled team of directors, does not shy away from the gruesome and gory. His projects for Travel Channel and Discovery+ are emotional journeys that evoke feelings of fear by turning seemingly ordinary realities into waking nightmares.

The Travel Channel's Matthew Butler said, "working with Eli and his team has been a dream, although in light of the content, I should probably say it's been a nightmare in the most spectacularly epic way. The horror genre is a natural progression for our network, and in combination with Eli's talent, we have elevated our offerings to both frighten and entertain all fans of this style of scary storytelling."
