Travel Channel to Launch 'The Dead Files' on Sept. 23

Travel Channel announced Thursday it is adding a new original investigative series, The Dead Files, to go along with Ghost Hunters on Friday nights.

Dead Files is one-hour series that pairs a retired New York homicide detective with a psychic communicator as they explore various crime scenes. The episode's format will have each investigating the scenes on their own before coming together to compare their findings at the end of the show.

Dead Files is slated to premiere Friday, Sept. 23 at 10 p.m. following the fifth-season premiere Ghost Hunters at 9 p.m.

"Our Friday night series takes viewers beyond the haunted destinations -- they provide a different type of escape, providing a taste of the other side and a new perspective on their own surroundings," said Fred Graver, SVP, programming & development, Travel Channel.
