Scare Tactics

Syfy wants Tracy Morgan to keep on scaring people. The cable network announced it has renewed its hidden camera reality series SCARE TACTICS for a fifth season with the 30 Rock actor returning as host and executive producer.

Production on the thirteen episode new season is expected to begin this fall with an eye toward a fall 2012 premiere. Meanwhile, the second half of the fourth season returns this October with six new episodes.

Mark Stern, President Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions said,

“We’re thrilled to be bringing back Scare Tactics for another season. Tracy is the ultimate prankster and Syfy fans will absolutely enjoy a new round of hilarious episodes.”

Scare Tactics is a hidden camera show with a sci-fi twist. The show conspires with friends and family members to lure those close to them into outrageous scenarios. Unsuspecting victims find themselves in shocking situations from alien abductions to brushes with the living dead. Scare Tactics is a fun roller coaster ride that takes advantage of the age-old practice of friends playing practical jokes on each other.
