The logline” While refining his skills as a master carpenter, Trey cultivated his deeper talent of mediumship. His special gift first manifested as a child, but was not encouraged by his parents. When Trey’s business brought him closer to those grappling with death, he realized his ability to speak to the dead could be put towards a higher purpose. Using both of his talents, he brings messages of love that aid families in finding the closure needed to move forward.
“Celebrity Ghost Stories” follows paranormal storyteller and psychic-medium Kim Russo of “The Haunting Of” fame. Kim is bringing some of the biggest names in entertainment back to the sites of their paranormal experiences for a reunion with the ghosts of their past. The logline: The series combines the thrill of ghost hunting with the emotion of psychic-medium readings to push the limits, showing a deeply raw and authentic side of some of various celebrities.
In special “World’s Biggest Ghost Hunt” (working title) five paranormal investigators are locked inside the Pennhurst Asylum in Pennsylvania for two weeks to document unexplained recent reports of paranormal activity. From 1908 to 1987, the 110-acre hospital had more than 10,000 residents, mostly children, confined in the most brutal conditions. Pennhurst is known as one of the most haunted locations in the United States, but recently, workers at the site have reported a sharp uptick in paranormal activity including mysterious noises and voices while others claim they were being physically attacked by spirits.
