A Walk in the Dark is a new found footage format documentary that follows artists that write and record their music in haunted houses. Austin Cook came up with the idea while traveling to haunted locations as the lead of a show on the Syfy Network.
His original idea was to have well known artists write a new song for each episode at a different haunted location. Producers liked the idea, then Covid hit… and production was at a stand still. But having grown up in a small town with big talent, Austin decided to dust off his guitar and try to shoot a pilot himself.
Some say the talent shows in Franklin, Tennessee rival most award shows. Kelsea Ballerini and Russell Dickerson are just a few of the well known names that went to the same high school as Austin. And long before he was traveling the world chasing ghosts, Austin was in a 3 piece rock band that shared the stage with Paramore, Joel and Luke Smallbone from for King and Country, and many others. The band eventually parted ways, but twenty years later they would reunite to write and record in some of the most haunted houses in Tennessee.
Starting in 2022 A Walk in the Dark plans to release a documentary and an EP every October featuring the haunted location they write in that year. The documentary begins this year at a farmhouse that is said to be haunted because of an unsolved murder that took place on the property. Viewers will get a behind the scenes look as they use the location’s history, mystery, and their paranormal experiences to write their songs.
After completing the documentary, producers were not only interested in the series, but also the music written in A Walk in the Dark.
