EIGHT FINALISTS TO COMPETE ON NEW REALITY SERIES 'THE GIFT'
CALL FOR ENTRIES EXTENDED THROUGH MARCH 16
New York, NY - March 13, 2006 - Have you ever thought of someone moments before the phone rang only to hear that person's voice on the other line? Have you ever had a premonition something would happen and it does? Have you ever experienced deja vu? Do you see dead people? SCI FI Channel is currently conducting the first-ever nationwide search for America's most talented new psychic. Eight finalists will be selected by a panel of experts to compete on SCI FI's new original reality series 'THE GIFT' slated to premiere this summer.
In response to the high volume of entries received for consideration, the deadline for entry has been extended through March 16. Interested candidates should visit HTTP://WWW.SCIFI.COM/THEGIFT through Thursday, March 16th and submit their online application and psychic test. Professional psychics are not eligible and all candidates must be over 18 years of age.
Executive produced by Tony Krantz ('24') and Victoria Holt, 'The Gift' is a unique six-episode, one-hour weekly reality series delving into the world of psychic phenomena in a way never seen before. After testing the baseline psychic abilities of people throughout the country, eight contestants will be selected to participate in an emotionally intense "boot camp for intuitives." Run by the world's greatest psychics, our finalists will compete against each other in a series of gripping challenges devised to test their growing abilities. One-by-one, they will be eliminated to reveal a final gifted, metaphysical winner.
