GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN follows Nick Groff, America's leading paranormal investigator, Bill Hartley, a paranormal tech guru, and Elizabeth Saint, a paranormal sensitive, as they investigate paranormal activity in the most haunted town in America, Shepherdstown, W.Va. In a community of 1,750 people, almost everyone has experienced something they couldn't explain, resulting in Shepherdstown's five-man police department responding to a majority of calls where the disturbances seem paranormal, not criminal, in nature. This surge of supernatural activity has forced Chief Michael King to enlist the aid of top-notch paranormal investigators to help residents restore peace to their homes and find out why Shepherdstown is such a hotbed for hauntings.
GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN is produced for Destination America by MAK Pictures with Mark Kadin, Will Ehbrecht and Tucia Lyman as executive producers.
