A take-off on "The Blair Witch Project," in which a guy finds out that his supposedly dead brother isn't dead after all when he sees him on the Internet. It's all about his spooky adventures in finding the truth.
A TV show from the five-member Haxan Films team (consisting of Eduardo Sanchez, Daniel Myrick, Robin Cowie, Gregg Hale, and Mike Manello) collaborated with screenwriter David S. Goyer, whose credits include Blade, Dark City, The Crow: City of Angels, and The Puppet Masters about a webmaster who looks for the weirdness and shares it with his internet viewers. Just like "The Blair Witch" did, 'Fearsum' has a website that Derek Barnes is the webmaster of.Written by
Ricardo Festiva, one of the show's creators, is actually a pseudonym for screenwriter, David S. Goyer. See more »
It's times like this that you crave the strange. It helps make the world make more sense. It makes the crazy normal, and the unreal real. Because, the unthinkable, without it...all you've got left is reality.

Yet another piece of evidence to add to the "US networks need to open their eyes to the quality and stop pulling the plug on good shows" pile. I saw a few episodes of this on French TV - it was pretty successful in France for its brief run, magazines were full of it. I particularly liked the episode "Live Fast, Die Young" which featured Paige Moss (Buffy guest star) - it reminded me of a teenage version of the X files. This show had a fantastic concept, loads of potential for twists and character development, but hey, what can we do?
Also, you can tell a lot about a show from its opening credits. With a theme tune like that it would have gone far - excellent mission statement:
"What you don't know can't hurt you, what you look for might get you."
