A South Central piñata shop, an old Korean brothel, a funeral home in Compton — what do these places have in common? They’ll all haunted. And WE tv is following the people who chase paranormal activity in such localesin and around Los Angeles with Ghosts in the Hood, a new docuseries launching January 5. Check out the promo above.
The show follows the brave folks at O.P.O. (Official Paranormal Operations), who go where other ghost hunters typically don’t – from the LBC to Altadena — bringing their signature humor along with them. Each of the six hourlong episodes sees the team responding to two different clients in distress, whether they live in a haunted home or run a business plagued by spirits. The O.P.O. team of Defecio Stoglin, Jasmine Orpilla, Dave Purdy, Matty Richards and Maunda Oyin has a strong track record of resolving unexplained issues for their clients, by either proving or disproving that something paranormal is plaguing them.
“Ghosts in the Hood’and the O.P.O. team brings a unique blend of humor along with out-of-the-box investigative techniques,” WE tv president Marc Juris said. “While they take the job seriously, they don’t take themselves too seriously, making for a ghost-hunting series unlike anything else that’s out there.”
Ghosts in the Hood is produced for WE tv by Gurney Productions and executive produced by Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney. Mike Odair and Todd Hurvitz also executive produce. In-house executive producers for WE tv are Lauren Gellert, David Stefanou and Sitarah Pendelton-Eaglin.
