Lifetime Television Orders Second Season of the Captivating Reality Series 'Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead,' from Merv Griffin Entertainment

Young British Psychic Medium Lisa Williams Returns This Summer With Eight New Episodes

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24 -- Lifetime Television's popular reality series "Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead" has been renewed for a second season, it was announced today by Susanne Daniels, President, Entertainment, Lifetime Entertainment Services. The show will return this summer.

"Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead" explores Williams' claim of her abilities to see and speak with the dead and in some cases possibly transform the lives of the people she meets who are seeking to connect with their dearly departed. Throughout the series, Williams shares stories of people wanting to be reunited with someone from their past, while offering personal observations and insights.

"The outpouring of letters and emails we have received from fans of Lisa, and the show, has been overwhelming," said Daniels. Adding, "We are thrilled that her vibrant and fun-loving personality has connected with our viewers."

Lisa Williams' success comes as no surprise to producer Merv Griffin, whose ability to recognize star quality is legendary. "I just knew the camera would love Lisa's face and that people would be amazed and entertained by her abilities," said Griffin. Adding, "Our office, too, has received a huge number of queries asking when she would be back on the air. We couldn't be happier that the show has performed so well for Lifetime and we look forward to an even more remarkable second season."

Merv Griffin, Raymond J. Brune, Andrew Yani and Yann Debonne serve as executive producers of the series, produced by Merv Griffin Entertainment in association with Kimo Jagger Productions for Lifetime Television.

In each episode of "Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead," cameras follow a typical day in the life of the young clairvoyant. When Williams removes her hat, revealing her signature multi-colored spiky hair, it's her way of showing the spirit world that she is available for contact. Lisa gives readings in her office to scheduled clients and oftentimes to people she randomly meets while about town in Los Angeles. In these meetings, Lisa relays messages that she believes are from the dead to their relatives and friends. The series also observes Lisa at home, with her husband, Kevin, and her six-year-old son, Charlie, who already shows an interest in natural healing and talking with spirits.

Online, viewers can log onto Lifetimetv.com and see exclusive video coverage of Lisa Williams giving readings to strangers on the street and footage from the show. Site visitors will also be able to learn more about Lisa personally through exclusive interviews and family photos. During the first season of "Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead," Lifetimetv.com hosted four live chats where viewers e-mailed Lisa questions directly, which generated more than three times the amount of traffic to the site than usual.
