TLC'S HIT-SERIES "LONG ISLAND MEDIUM" RETURNS WITH A BRAND NEW SEASON ON FEBRUARY 19
New Episodes Include Celebrity Readings, Emotional Stories and Personal Triumphs
(Los Angeles, CA) - Everyone's favorite mom from Long Island, Theresa Caputo, returns with her family for a brand new season of LONG ISLAND MEDIUM, filled with celebrity readings and heart-warming stories as she shares her gift of healing.
During the star-studded premiere on Sunday, February 19th at 8/7c, Theresa meets with Rosie O'Donnell and connects with both of her parents through spirit; MIKE & MOLLY star Billy Gardell receives validations from his late grandfather and mother-in-law; while EMPIRE star Ta'Rhonda Jones hears from a deceased cousin; and Oscar winning actress and comic Mo'Nique is reunited with a relative and a famous deceased comedian. Upcoming episodes will also include stars Jim O'Heir, Carson Kressley, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Wendi McClendon-Covey, Christopher Atkins and Kym Whitley.
Throughout the season, Theresa's passion for her gift of connecting with people who have departed is evident - she surprises a young woman and does her first "automatic writing" in a decade where she writes a girl a letter on behalf of her mother who died from ALS; in another episode, Theresa officiates a wedding for two people who met at one of her group readings and Larry is asked to be the best man, and as a first, Theresa visits a doctor who scans her brain while she's channeling, in the hopes she is able to find out what goes on in her head when she's reading others. Meanwhile, the Caputos' personal strength is put to the test as Theresa and Larry each face potentially difficult medical issues together.
