Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Not a "supernatural" series by any means, the Canadian musical-variety show Haunted Studio was built around the fact that the CBC had allotted the program the tiniest of budgets. The studio in question was "haunted" in that it was virtually empty and bereft of sets and props. The musical numbers were staged in an impressionistic fashion to compensate for the paucity of production values, with admirable results. Originating as a filmed pilot which was telecast to plug a last-minute gap in the CBC's prime-time manifest, Haunted Studio ultimately ran for six episodes, which aired on Thursday nights from July 22 to September 2, 1954.
