Near-death experiences may be the closest we ever come to knowing what exists on the “other side”; and a new series on Destination America, “Ghost Stalkers, premiering in October, looks to solve that very mystery!
From the Press Release:
Many of those who have seen the proverbial “white light” say they returned to life with a sudden sensitivity to the spirit world, and it’s believed that people who are sensitive enough can glimpse through and even enter places – portals – that bridge our realm with the hereafter.
In the all-new series “GHOST STALKERS,” produced exclusively for Destination America by Nick Groff (“Ghost Adventures”), two men who crossed over investigate the afterlife that they encountered for a brief, eye-opening moment by exploring American locations that are rumored to house doorways to another dimension.
The six-episode first season of “GHOST STALKERS” premieres Sunday, October 19th, at 10/9c as part of Destination America’s week-long Ghostober stunt, which also includes an all-new episode of “ALASKA MONSTERS” on Friday, October 17th, at 9/8c followed by the one-hour special “KILLING BIGFOOT” at 10/9c.
Actor Chad Lindberg (pictured above), best known for his roles in the Fast and the Furious, October Sky, and “Supernatural,” among others, nearly died at seven years old and has since possessed a sensitivity to paranormal activity. Renowned paranormal expert, author, and investigator John E.L. Tenney was brought back from the dead at age 17 and has dedicated his career to learning more about what’s beyond the white light. In “GHOST STALKERS” Chad and John seek the answer to what’s on the other side using state-of-the-art paranormal investigation equipment and conducting their own solo overnight explorations in America’s most haunted places, including a 200-year-old Tennessee plantation never before featured on television and a small-town Georgia hospital that doubled as a funeral home.
“One of life’s biggest unanswered questions is what happens after you die, and it’s amazing to think that the answer could be found in America’s scariest places, from Alcatraz and the Amityville murder house to lesser-known locations featured for the first time on TV in ‘GHOST STALKERS,’” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. “Viewers are along for a scary ride, where strange events will make even skeptics question their beliefs.”
In the premiere episode, “Whispers Estate,” airing Sunday, October 19, at 10/9c, reports of violent hauntings, goat-like demons, and bizarre shadow creatures drive John and Chad to investigate a possible ghost portal at the Whispers Estate in Mitchell, Indiana. The estate was once home to Dr. John Gibbons, who went insane after his daughter died in a second-floor fire. Over the course of two nights, John and Chad explore whether the spectral attacks are the work of Dr. Gibbons and his family or of something far more evil. The closer they get to the truth, the more they find themselves in the house’s crosshairs.
“GHOST STALKERS” is produced for Destination America by Groff Entertainment and Bray Entertainment with Nick Groff and Chris Bray as executive producers and Ted Kim as co-executive producer. For Destination America, Sara Helman is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Marc Etkind is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel and Discovery Fit & Health.
