A&E FOLLOWS AN UNCONVENTIONAL TEAM WHO PROVOKE THE SUPERNATURAL IN TWO ORIGINAL ONE-HOUR "EXTREME PARANORMAL" SPECIALS

"Extreme Paranormal: New Mexico State Penitentiary" Premieres Monday, October 19 at 10 PM ET/PT

"Extreme Paranormal: Pennhurst Insane Asylum & Manchac Swamp" Premieres Monday, October 26 at 10 PM ET/PT

A&E follows three fearless investigators who stir up paranormal activity as they explore chilling local phenomena in "Extreme Paranormal," two original one-hour specials premiering Monday, October 19 and Monday, October 26 at 10 PM ET/PT. Determined to find the truth behind local legends, curses and hauntings, Shaun, Nathan and Jason go beyond normal paranormal investigative methods and intentionally put themselves directly in harms way with their bold antics by taunting ghosts, summoning the dead and daring the demonic to attack. These guys have spent the last ten years kicking sand in the face of ghosts across America and every Sunday at midnight, they recount their latest mission on their popular radio show "Ghostman and Demon Hunter".

In "Extreme Paranormal: New Mexico State Penitentiary," premiering on Monday, October 19 at 10 PM ET/PT, the trio explore an abandoned maximum security lockup where visitors claim the tortured souls of inmates, who were violently murdered in the worst prison riot in U.S. history, still linger. Our investigators want to see if there is any truth behind the legend in this potentially volatile paranormal environment and go as far as recreating moments of this horrific event, shedding their own blood, to provoke the violent spirits to show themselves to the cameras. Then, in the first-ever underwater paranormal investigation, the team descends to the eerie depths of a remote haunted lake to locate a lost city and summon the spirit of a mass murderer who massacred seven innocent victims more than a century ago.

In "Extreme Paranormal: Pennhurst Insane Asylum & Manchac Swamp," premiering on Monday, October 26 at 10 PM ET/PT, the investigators explore a decrepit mental asylum and haunted swamp. Traveling deep into the heart of Manchac Swamp just outside of New Orleans where an entire town was wiped away by a massive hurricane in 1915, the trio goes as far as to bury one of their own alive in a mass gravesite in order to contact the souls of the residents. The team then travels to Eastern Pennsylvania to the Pennhurst State School, a rundown mental hospital that was closed in 1986 after decades of abuse, neglect and torture. They investigate strange sightings and unexplained phenomena and relive horrific abuses such as prolonged restraint and electroshock therapy in the hopes of experiencing and coaxing restless spirits to come out of the shadows.

"Extreme Paranormal" is produced by Painless Entertainment and Brownstone Entertainment for A&E. Jim Casey, Joe Carolei, Drew Brown and Rob Hammersley are executive producers. Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant are executive producers for A&E.
