Press Release · Los Angeles, CA, USA · · Updated

Mark Ramsey Media announced today that Dark Sanctum, an original scripted full-cast shocker written and produced by Mark Ramsey, will be available exclusively on Wondery+ in Dolby Atmos.

Dark Sanctum is a thrilling and spine-tingling 7-episode limited series showcasing things that go bump in the night. Inspired by TV classics like The Twilight Zone and Tales from the Crypt, and classic radio scare-fests like Inner Sanctum and Lights Out, the new series blends captivating storytelling with chilling audio and sound design in Dolby Atmos to transport listeners through a twisted and memorable audio thrill ride.

Mark Ramsey, the creator/writer/narrator of acclaimed podcasts like Inside Psycho, Inside The Exorcist and more, collaborated with his Inside partner and sound designer Jeff Schmidt, who is also known for his work on the podcasts-turned-television hits such as Dirty John and Dr. Death. The voice cast boasts the talents of Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill, Dexter), Clive Standen (Vikings, Doctor Who) and Michael O’Neill (Jack Ryan, Dallas Buyers Club).

“I was with Wondery at their beginning and I’m thrilled to be back in their family for Dark Sanctum,” said Ramsey. "This is the kind of audio experience hard to find in the podcast world: tight storytelling, top-notch production and performance, and the use of sound in a way that will remind listeners just how powerful and terrifying sound-only can be.”

Dark Sanctum is the second collaboration for Ramsey and Wondery, following Inside Psycho in 2017. The success propelled further classic horror deep dives with Inside The Exorcist and Inside Jaws, with each series boasting tens of millions of downloads and thousands of five star reviews, ranking in Apple Podcasts’ top ten lists.

The first episode will be available for free on the Wondery app, with the full season available to binge for subscribers on Wondery+ on October 17.
