The first, “Turn & Burn,” is a one hour, six-episode, reality show featuring the custom work of the Southern California-based El Reyes Garage. The second, “Dark Secrets,” is a half-hour/eight episode series that recreates supernatural psychic events.
“The global growth of 3D TV into the home increased by 72% in 2012, and we’re starting to see the impact of those 41 million new sets sold last year…,” said 3net/3net Studios CEO Tom Cosgrove.
In addition to the new original productions, 3net is in the final stages of post-producing the second season of “Hillbilly Blood: A Hardscrabble Life,” which follows two mountain men surviving in the mountains of Appalachia.
