By Reality TV World staff, 06/30/2002
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the Sci-Fi Channel is getting into TV's hidden-camera reality game show business with "Scare Tactics," a half-hour show hosted by "Beverly Hills, 90210" alumna Shannen Doherty to launch in the fall. The show will secretly film pranks inspired by sci-fi movies with setups that will run the gamut from haunted houses to alien abductions.
The network has placed a 13-episode order with producer Hallock Healey Entertainment for the show, which will launch in October as a weekly primetime weekday series. Created by Scott Hallock and Kevin Healey, who served as executive producers of NBC's summer series "Spy TV," the show is billed as a sci-fi version of "Candid Camera."
