WE tv ANNOUNCES NEW PARANORMAL DOCU-SERIES "GHOSTS IN THE HOOD" PREMIERING ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 2017

New Series Blends Humor with the Supernatural and Features Diverse Group of Ghost Hunters Investigating Paranormal Phenomena in L.A.

NEW YORK, NY - October 27, 2016 - WE tv today announced a new paranormal docu-series, "Ghosts In the Hood," that blends humor with the supernatural and follows a group of diverse ghost hunters as they investigate unexplained phenomena across Los Angeles. Set to premiere on Thursday, January 5, 2017 on WE tv, the show follows the ghost-hunting team of 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. WE tv has produced six hour-long episodes of the series.

On each episode, O.P.O. responds to two different clients in distress. Whether they live in a haunted home or run a business plagued by spirits, O.P.O. 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," said Marc Juris, WE tv president. "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. We are excited to bring this funny and mysterious new show to WE tv viewers, who will no doubt enjoy the antics of O.P.O. as they conquer the spirit world of Los Angeles."

Over the course of the season, O.P.O. will investigate many unexplained and spooky phenomena in Los Angeles including a haunted funeral home in Compton, a South Central Pi´┐Żata shop plagued by spirits, a family "fun" zone, that is making customers and staff ill, a grocery store possibly inhabited by Santa Muerte, an Inglewood property for sale whose resident spirit has yet to move out and a downtown L.A. bar where employees are too scared by a sinister presence to continue working.

Meet O.P.O.:

Defecio Stoglin - The CEO of O.P.O., Defecio was compelled by his passion for the paranormal, and founded and created Official Paranormal Operations to help out everyday people who are dealing problems of the supernatural kind. With his a keen and eager eye for investigating. Defecio tries to bring peace of mind to his clients.

Jasmine Orpilla - A verified medium, Jasmine comes to speak to the departed spirits that inhabit the haunted sites investigatesd by O.P.O. Jasmine has been communicating with spirits for quite a number of years and as a result, has honed and developed her contact skills to the other side.

Dave Purdy - The technical expert for O.P.O., Dave has a passion for all things technical and knack for building his own gear. He builds and creates the gear used to collect evidence of paranormal activity for clients, and he is the lead on revealing the found evidence once the investigation is over. His love for the paranormal and talent for creating innovative technologies makes him the perfect tech expert for O.P.O.

Matty Richards - A family friend of Defecio from New York, Matty is also a budding comedian and actor, providing much needed comic relief for the group, as well as being O.P.O.'s resident scaredy cat. Although he has no previous ghost hunting skills, he is currently learning the ins and outs to help O.P.O. any way he can.

Maunda Oyin - As the group's chief researcher, Maunda does anything she can to supply context for the frightening situations the crew is about to head into. Using her naturally inquisitive mind, Maunda digs into the history of every haunting, going to libraries, records offices, even traveling door-to-door in the neighborhoods where they're investigating to maximize O.P.O.'s chances of discovering information useful to their case.
