CHEVY CHASE, Md., Aug. 8 (UPI) -- U.S. cable television's Travel Channel says it plans to air a new original paranormal investigative series called "The Dead Files" this fall.
Set to premiere Sept. 23, the series "pairs a hard-nosed detective, who looks at the physical evidence, with a gifted psychic communicator, who has her well-established sixth sense to work with," the channel said in a news release. "They explore each crime scene on their own, and only join together at the end to compare notes and together discover some shocking results."
"The Dead Files" -- consisting of eight hourlong episodes -- will be paired with the fifth season of "Ghost Adventures," an investigative program that focuses on locations with dark histories, the channel said.
"Our Friday night series takes viewers beyond the haunted destinations. They provide a different type of escape, providing a taste of the other side and a new perspective on their own surroundings," Fred Graver, senior vice president of programming and development for Travel Channel, said in a statement.
