New York, NY � October 31, 2007- Premiering December 10th at 10PM ET/PT with back-to-back episodes, A&E will chronicle the case files of the Paranormal Research Society (PRS), a renowned group comprised of Penn State University college students, in the dramatic new Real-Life series PARANORMAL STATE.

Penn State University student Ryan Buell gets a call from a client telling him that her eight-year-old son is seeing dead people in the family's new home. Ryan has a deep connection to this child before they even meet, as he too was terrified by paranormal experiences as a kid. Ryan and the PRS team travel to the client's home, interview the family and child and investigate to determine if there is evidence of paranormal activity or if what they are witnessing is just the imagination of a child. As if this wasn't enough for a paranormal investigator to handle, Ryan must be back in time for his Economics class the next morning.

Ryan Buell is clearly no ordinary college student. He's the director/founder of PRS and the central character in PARANORMAL STATE. Ryan and his college-age team of paranormal investigators spend their time investigating the strange and bizarre while trying to find balance within their young adult lives. And it's never easy. The PRS team, which Ryan started in 2001, has worked on cases involving demonic possession and exorcism, assisted law enforcement on missing person's cases, and have brought peace to frightened families.

PARANORMAL STATE follows Ryan and the PRS as they set out on cases throughout the country. Through the use of Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) recordings, client interviews, video documentation, old-fashioned research and the help from outside experts such as renowned psychics, demonologists and Penn State University psychologists and counselors, Ryan Buell and the PRS team delve dangerously into other worlds to try and help people who have no one else to turn to.

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.
