A&E GOES ON GHOST PATROL WITH NEW REAL-LIFE SERIES "PARANORMAL COPS" FOLLOWING POLICE OFFICERS WHO ALSO WORK AS PARANORMAL INVESTIGATORS

HIT SERIES "PARANORMAL STATE" RETURNS ON MONDAY, JANUARY 19 AT 10PM ET/PT FOR THIRD SEASON

NEW YORK, NY - January 6, 2009 - A&E sets out on a ghost patrol with the greenlight of the new original real-life series "Paranormal Cops," following a team of Chicago-area police officers who also work as paranormal investigators. The network also announced the third season of hit original real-life series "Paranormal State." The third season of "Paranormal State" premieres Monday, January 19 at 10PM ET/PT and "Paranormal Cops" is currently and tentatively slated to premiere later in 2009.

"'Paranormal Cops'" is the perfect marriage of A&E's successful crime and justice genre with our blossoming paranormal programming that documents real-life accounts of bona fide paranormal investigators," said Robert Sharenow, Senior Vice President, Nonfiction and Alternative Programming, A&E. "And Ryan and his �Paranormal State' team continue to bring intense, authentic and emotionally riveting cases to our viewers."

"Paranormal Cops" follows a group of larger-than-life cops who walk one beat during the day as real-life Chicago-area police officers and another at night when they apply their forensic and investigative expertise to paranormal casework. Responding to the pleas of ordinary people who are victimized by distressing and inexplicable activities in their homes and workplaces, as well as taking cases from their day jobs when called upon, these cops bring their no-nonsense approach to hunting ghosts and real-life police skills to separate the fact from fiction � and often happen upon results much scarier than the paranormal.

"Paranormal Cops" is produced by North South Productions for A&E. Charlie Debevoise and Mark Hickman serve as Executive Producers for North South Productions. A&E Executive Producers are Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant.

A&E continues to chronicle the case files of the Paranormal Research Society (PRS), a renowned group comprised of Penn State University College Students in season three of the dramatic Real-Life series "Paranormal State." Ryan Buell, the director/founder of PRS, and his college age team of paranormal investigators delve into other worlds to solve a variety of cases. The team uses a cache of resources including Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) recordings, client interviews, video documentation, cutting-edge technologies, old-fashioned research and the help from outside experts such as renowned psychics and demonologists.

In 2008 to date, premiere episodes of "Paranormal State" averaged 1.4 million total viewers, 27% above the 2007 time period average.

"Paranormal State" is produced by Four Seasons Productions Intl and Go Go Luckey Productions for A&E Networks. Gary Auerbach, Julie Auerbach and Betsy Schechter are the executive producers. A&E executive producers are Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant.
