A&E Approves Paranormal Police Series

A&E will go on ghost patrol in the Windy City and environs, as it has greenlit the new original real-life series, Paranormal Cops.

The series, which follows a team of Chicago-area police officers who also work as paranormal investigators, is slated to premiere later in 2009, according the network.

Paranormal Cops is the second series for A&E that focuses on hunting ghosts, following the network’s ParanormalState. That series, in which a renowned group comprised of Penn State University College Students look to tap ghostly spirits in an effort to solve a variety of cases, averaged 1.4 million total viewers during its 2008 sophomore run. The third season of the reality series will debut Jan. 19 at 10 p.m.

Paranormal Cops” is the perfect marriage of A&E’s successful crime and justice genre with our blossoming paranormal programming that documents real-life accounts of bona fide paranormal investigators,” said Robert Sharenow, A&E senior vice president, nonfiction and alternative programming, in a statement.
