NEW YORK (August 16, 2018) – Calling all ghost hunters! Get ready for a thrilling, suspenseful and interactive paranormal investigation series where viewers can help drive the course of the live show in real time. Travel Channel’s “Haunted Live” premieres on Friday, September 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and invites ghost lovers to join a live paranormal investigation alongside the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, a team of paranormal experts that relies on a combination of scientific method and spiritual faith to navigate its investigations.
Each week, the team – comprised of Chris Smith, Steven “Doogie” McDougal, Scott Porter, Brannon Smith and Mike Goncalves – will reveal a new haunted location to the public, keeping it under wraps until the investigation begins to avoid interference or contamination. Then, team members utilize their skills, technology and unique experiments to capture evidence of paranormal activity in a live and unfiltered paranormal investigation. Through an on-location live video stream, viewers can monitor all of the “Haunted Live” activity on Travel Channel’s Facebook Live platform and comment on any findings in real time, directing the team where to investigate next. Fans can follow Travel Channel’s social media pages for the location reveal each week, and visit Facebook to join a special pre-hunt Q&A with the Tennessee Wraith Chasers.

ABOUT THE TENNESSEE WRAITH CHASERS
The Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC) is a serious team of paranormal investigators that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Each investigation is packed full of Southern charm and wit, but when it comes down to business, TWC doesn’t mess around. TWC’s motto is respect, detect, collect, meaning they rely on a unique combination of scientific method and spiritual faith to navigate investigations. Growing up in a historic, and some say haunted, area of Tennessee has given the team an authentic desire to make sense of the mysterious things they’ve experienced through paranormal research. They take great pride in establishing trusted relationships with witnesses and call on the strengths of each team member to leave no stone unturned. The Wraith Chasers made their television debut as the stars of Destination America’s fan-favorite series “Ghost Asylum,” in which they investigated America’s most frightening asylums, sanitariums, penitentiaries and haunted hotspots.
