DISCOVERY CHANNEL TACKLES UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA WITH ALL-NEW SERIES GHOST LAB TO PREMIERE OCTOBER 6
-- Klinge Brothers Use High Tech Mobile Lab and Noted Historical Experts to Test Scientific Theories --
(Silver Spring, Md.) - With the help of the latest technology, two brothers have uncovered some of the most intriguing results in supernatural research to date - including a possible recording of Civil War soldiers talking. Meet Brad and Barry Klinge, Texas natives who in 2007 founded Everyday Paranormal, an investigation team that has explored more than 70 locations and given a new twist to paranormal research. The Klinges and their team of investigators are featured in the all-new 13-part series GHOST LAB, to premiere Tuesday, October 6 at 10PM E/P on Discovery Channel.
The Klinge brothers tackle what are thought to be some of America's most haunted locations with sophisticated equipment housed in a decked-out travelling "ghost lab." This 24-foot car hauler is capable of providing 200,000 watts of electricity to power audio, video and photo analysis stations; flat-screen televisions and an interactive touch-screen smartboard. The lab also houses surveillance video cameras capable of shooting 300 feet away in total darkness with a 180-degree peripheral view; temperature, humidity and dew point data loggers; various digital cameras, including thermal imaging cameras; audio recorders; and more than 8,000 feet of video cable. This on-site high-tech lab enables investigators to analyze data on the premises in real time, helping them to more narrowly focus their investigations on suspected "hot spots."
The team also consults with some of the world's foremost specialists in science measurements to devise and test theories during their investigations. Is there more "ghost activity" around water? Are spirits attached to specific items or locations? Is there a parallel universe?
Some of the locations the Klinge brothers investigate on GHOST LAB include Tombstone, Ariz., home to some of the most violent deaths in history; Shreveport Municipal Auditorium, where Elvis got his start; and Granbury Opera House where, according to legend, John Wilkes Booth changed his name to John St. Helen and performed Shakespeare after assassinating President Lincoln.
GHOST LAB is produced for Discovery Channel by Go Go Lucky Entertainment, where Gary Auerbach is the executive producer, with Paper Route Productions, where Alan LaGarde is the executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Tim Pastore is executive producer.
