Paranormal pioneers Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, and Dave Tango are back with the “Ghost Nation” two-hour premiere. And the new series “Abracadabra!” premieres with mind-blowing magic caught on camera.
Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, and Dave Tango are back for more adventures to the other side in a new season of “Ghost Nation.” This season’s locations have bigger mysteries, are more chilling and have never been investigated on television. And this time, they are calling in an old friend for some help – paranormal investigator Shari DeBenedetti. On all investigations, collecting evidence is just the beginning. With the help of their local contacts, they’re going to embed themselves in the community, conducting multi-day investigations in an effort to track down the true source of these hauntings and restore peace to the living. Under the United Paranormal Research Organization (UPRO) banner, local paranormal groups will join the team as they employ new devices and techniques for confronting and questioning spirits. They’ll do whatever it takes to entice the ghost into telling its story and stop at nothing to get to the bottom of the paranormal phenomena. [Hour-long episodes]
