LifetimeTV.com Teams with Paltalk to Launch Weekly Online Chats with Popular Medium/Clairvoyant Lisa Williams Beginning Friday, October 12 from 10-11pm (EDT/PDT)

Immediately Follows Telecast of 'Lisa Williams: Life Among The Dead' on Lifetime Television, Fridays From 9-10pm (EDT)

NEW YORK, Oct. 11 -- Lifetime Networks is teaming with Paltalk, the leading real-time, video-based community, for an online weekly question and answer program with medium/clairvoyant Lisa Williams of Lifetime's popular series, "Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead." Available only on LifetimeTV.com, the chats premiere Friday, October 12 from 10-11PM (EDT/PDT), immediately following the second season return of the television series on the Network at 9PM (EDT/PDT).

"Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead" becomes Lifetime's second series to utilize Paltalk's interactive video community bringing fans together with the Network's on-air personalities. Recently the stars from "Blood Ties" (returning for its second season Friday, October 12 at 11PM), Christina Cox and Kyle Schmidt, participated in a live chat hosted by Paltalk, which produced more than 5,500 posts in an hour and thousands of unique visitors.

Viewers can log on to http://www.lifetimetv.com or http://www.paltalk.com/lisawilliams and participate in a live video session with Williams from her studio. Viewers can ask questions, discuss the topics covered on that evening's TV broadcast, as well as interact face to face with Williams and each other via voice, text, and video.

Last season's Lisa Williams text chats were extremely popular, resulting in LifetimeTV.com's most trafficked single hour in history.

"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.

"By joining with Paltalk, we are be able to provide our viewers with a new way to engage with many of our most popular personalities and with each other," said Dan Suratt, Executive Vice President, Digital Media and Business Development, Lifetime Networks. "We were extremely pleased with the turnout for our kick-off Blood Ties live chat event earlier this month and are looking forward to the same success on the Lisa Williams Chats. As the leader in women's television programming, we are always looking to enhance the experience of our audience and LifetimeTV.com's community of more than 2 million members, and so are very excited about this collaboration."

"As we've seen with our previous partnerships with CBS Radio and 1010 WINS, traditional broadcast media is embracing the ability to build community and encourage audience participation with interactive online video," said Joel Smernoff, COO and President of Paltalk. "We look forward to bringing our unique interactive platform to Lifetime's thriving digital community, and to continuing our work with traditional broadcast outlets to drive the convergence of content and social media into a new viewing experience."
