A&E PREMIERES 'PSYCHIC KIDS: CHILDREN OF THE PARANORMAL'

NEW REAL-LIFE SERIES DEBUTS MONDAY, JUNE 16 AT 10:00PM

New York, NY � June 2, 2008 - On the heels of the extremely successful inaugural season of the A&E series "Paranormal State," the network will premiere "Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal" on Monday, June 16 at 10:00PM ET/PT. What would you do if your child came to you and said, "I see dead people?" Scores of parents across the country are struggling how to deal with their child's paranormal abilities. Now, thanks to Medium Chip Coffey and renowned psychologist and Columbia University professor, Dr. Lisa Miller, help is on the way. Each one-hour episode features three kids who ultimately are brought together by Chip and Lisa to learn how to cope with their gifts and to realize they are not alone.

Part of Dr. Miller's role is to evaluate the child's mental health as well as help the children and families deal with the inter-family conflict they may be experiencing. Cases are screened vigorously to make sure what a child claims to be experiencing isn't from a psychological disorder. Medium Chip Coffey utilizes both his abilities in the paranormal and his Masters Degree in Psychology when he deals with children who are showing signs of possessing psychic and medium abilities. Chip aims to help the children with the supernatural phenomenon he or she is experiencing and how to manage this lifelong "gift" and the burdens that sometimes go along with the paranormal abilities.

From seeing dead people to frightening abilities to predict the future, Chip and Lisa will uncover the truths and help the terrified and gifted. In the end, "Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal," is an intense journey of a medium and a psychologist, who draw on their own personal experiences, training, and unique outlook on life to teach troubled kids how to deal with what they often feel is a curse, as much as a unique and special gift.

"Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal" is produced by Four Seasons Productions Intl. Betsy Schechter and George Plamondon are the executive producers. A&E executive producers are Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant.
