NIKITA stars international action-film star and martial arts expert Maggie Q (“Mission Impossible III”) in the title role as a spy and assassin for a top secret U.S. government agency, who rebels against the system that created her and will stop at nothing to bring their powerful operation to an end.
On Monday, September 13, viewers will get the best of both coasts when the third season premiere of 90210 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) leads into the season four premiere of GOSSIP GIRL (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET).

BURBANK, Calif. (March 29, 2010) – “Ghostfacers” – the new original shortform series/brand extension of the hit CW/Warner Bros. Television action-drama SUPERNATURAL – is set to premiere Thursday, April 15, on CWTV.com. The debut of the “Ghostfacers” digital series, starring AJ Buckley and Travis Wester as the world’s greatest self-proclaimed ghost hunters on a quest for the paranormal, coincides with the broadcast of the 100th episode of SUPERNATURAL, starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, on The CW (Thursdays 9:00–10:00 p.m. ET/PT).

“Ghostfacers” follows a team of fearless and sometimes comical “professional” ghost hunters who investigate other-worldly sightings and record their own adventures in documentary-style episodes. In this first installment of the new series, the Ghostfacers team investigates the haunting of a local theatre by the spirit of a young starlet – played by Kelly Carlson (“Nip/Tuck”) – who, according to legend, was murdered in front of her dressing room mirror.
Fans hungry for more “Ghostfacers” mythology can find additional images, character bios and video on the “Ghostfacers” website.
In addition to Carlson guest starring, “Ghostfacers” stars AJ Buckley (SUPERNATURAL, “CSI: NY,” “Skateland”) as Ed, the team’s enthusiastic leader. Travis Wester (SUPERNATURAL, “Euro Trip,” “Cold Case”) stars as Harry, the co-founder of the team and tactical specialist. Brittany Ishibashi (SUPERNATURAL, “Notes From the Underbelly”) is Maggie, Ed’s adopted sister and the team’s tech-genius. Austin Basis (LIFE UNEXPECTED, “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “NCIS”) stars as Kenny Spruce, the videographer and occasional shaman.
From Wonderland Sound and Vision (SUPERNATURAL, “Chuck,” “Sorority Forever”) in association with Studio 2.0, “Ghostfacers” is executive produced by McG, Peter Johnson, Jeff Grosvenor, Eric Kripke and Phil Sgriccia. The series is written by AJ Buckley, Patrick J. Doody, Chris Valenziano and Travis Wester. “Ghostfacers” characters were created for SUPERNATURAL by Trey Callaway and first appeared in the first season episode ‘Hell House.’ The Ghostfacers concept was later expanded upon by SUPERNATURAL executive producer and writer Ben Edlund in the third season episode, ‘Ghostfacers.’
