TRAVEL CHANNEL JOURNEYS BACK TO THE DARK SIDE WITH SEASON TWO OF THE INVESTIGATIVE SERIES "THE DEAD FILES"

Gripping New Season Kicks Off With an Unforgettable Special Investigation of The Infamous Lizzie Borden House

Season Premieres on Friday, April 20 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT

CHEVY CHASE, MD (April 2, 2012) - Travel Channel brings back an all-new season of its compelling one-hour paranormal investigative series "The Dead Files," featuring retired NYPD Homicide Detective Steve DiSchiavi and medium Amy Allan as they travel throughout the country to uncover the unexplained disturbances in each locale. The new thirteen-episode season kicks off on Friday, April 20 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT with a special one hour investigation of the notorious Lizzie Borden House, and once again, pairs the no-nonsense detective, who investigates physical evidence, with the gifted medium, who channels the dead. They explore each crime scene separately from each other, joining together only at the end to compare notes and deliver some startling results to the homeowner.

Season two premieres with an astonishing examination of the Lizzie Borden House in Massachusetts - a residence made infamous by the vicious, gruesome and still-unsolved murders that occurred there back in 1892. Now an inn, frightening new claims of violent attacks and ominous apparitions propel Allan and DiSchiavi into a disturbing investigation as they attempt to unravel the mystery and paranormal activity that has plagued this spot for generations. While Allan is eager to push the limits of her unique powers, DiSchiavi digs deeper into the facts, legends and lies surrounding the house. Their unsettling findings shock the inn's owner as they uncover a bizarre new twist to a century-old murder mystery.

Throughout the rest of the series, Allan and DiSchiavi visit riveting new locations across the country, each with a unique story to uncover and solve. Highlights from the upcoming season include a historic home in Cartersville, Georgia, where the duo investigates a terrified mother's claims of strange paranormal activity and soon discover aggressive entities and evidence of a shocking murder. In Santaquin, Utah, the team explores disturbing paranormal reports at a family-owned restaurant, along with a residence in Elizabeth City, North Carolina housing a tragic past. Additional sites include the Slocum House Theater in Vancouver, Washington, where increasingly odd unexplained activity and ghostly apparitions have left its staff fearful for their safety, and a family home in Wichita, Kansas that is the center of a bone-chilling paranormal mystery dating back to the cowboy days of the 1800s.

In each locale, the team approaches the case from their two specific areas of expertise: Steve DiSchiavi is a retired Homicide Detective with the New York City Police Department with more than 21 years of active service, and a natural skeptic; and Amy Allan is a medium whose unique gifts allow her to communicate with the deceased. DiSchiavi begins each investigation exploring the property, questioning the owners or tenants, and even interviewing local historians and police investigators. Allan's abilities have been studied and tested by leading parapsychologists, and she's worked with many private investigators and police agencies.

"The Dead Files" is produced by Painless Entertainment, Inc. for the Travel Channel. For Painless, the executive producer is Jim Casey and the co-executive producers are Ross Kaiman and Rob Rosen. The executive producer for the Travel Channel is David E. Gerber.
