Lifetime Launches Second Season of the Popular Reality Series 'Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead' in New Friday Night Reality Programming Block Beginning October 12

Series Returns With Eight All-New Episodes Starring Popular Medium/Clairvoyant Lisa Williams from Merv Griffin Entertainment ("Crosswords," "Wheel of Fortune," "Jeopardy")

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 12 -- The second season of Lifetime's popular reality series "Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead" will premiere on Friday, October 12 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) as part of Lifetime's new primetime Friday night reality programming block, it was announced today at Lifetime's TCA Press Tour by Susanne Daniels, President, Entertainment, Lifetime Networks. The second season premiere will lead into the series premiere of the new reality competition show "America's Psychic Challenge," immediately following at 10:00 PM (ET/PT).

"The response we received from viewers about Lisa and the show in the first season was overwhelming. Her appearances on 'Oprah' and 'The Today Show' are a testament her popularity and people's fascination with psychic mediums," said Daniels. Adding, "This season we have some amazingly heartfelt stories and some of Lisa's readings are truly jaw-dropping."

"Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead" explores Williams' 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 who has died, while offering personal observations and insights. In each episode cameras follow a typical day in the life of the young clairvoyant which includes among other things, Lisa giving readings to scheduled clients and occasionally people she randomly meets while about town.

This season, some of Williams' readings include: Bethie and Sandi, sisters whose mother was murdered by her boyfriend; Ann, an adopted woman who visits Lisa to connect with her birthmother, yet during the reading unexpectedly finds out information about her father; and Evelyn, a mother looking for answers about the death of her son. Also new, Lisa gives readings to celebrities, including Dayna Devon, the host of the entertainment magazine show "Extra," who is seeking to connect with a close friend who has passed away in the hopes of uncovering details of his unexpected death.

New for the online community this season, viewers can log onto Lifetimetv.com and see exclusive webisodes featuring Lisa behind-the-scenes of the show. Site visitors will also be able to view full episodes from season one and season two and participate in live chats where viewers can e-mail Lisa questions directly. During the first season of "Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead," Lifetimetv.com hosted four live chats, which generated more than three times the amount of traffic to the site than usual.

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.
