The program searches for the alleged ghosts of famous deceased people. Curious skeptic Gail Porter and clairvoyantChris Fleming take a road trip through America looking for the haunted locations where legends of stage, screen, and music reside. Described by the channel as "like a sharper, sexier, and funnier Mulder and Scully", the duo visits places where celebrity spirits are claimed roam: their hotel rooms, diners, gardens, film lots, and theaters.
The show was produced by Twofour originally for broadcast on LivingTV, but because of its popularity, it can be seen in many countries and is currently aired on the Biography Channel.
Both series 1 and 2 are available on DVD, there is no news on when series 3 will be released.
In each episode, the show visits three locations that have some link or connection to the dead celebrity, although some seem nebulous at best. All of the locations are researched for their historical connection and presented in a factual way.
