    Plumbers by day - ghost hunters by night. Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson are two plumbers working for Roto-Rooter in New England. They are also the co-founders of TAPS - The Atlantic Paranormal Society - a paranormal research team which investigates hauntings and other strange occurrences. This one-hour weekly show (dubbed a "docu-soap" by the Sci-Fi Channel) follows their investigations from first contact through the gathering of evidence, and to the reveal of that evidence to the client. Every week Jason, Grant, and their team investigate a new case, from poltergeists who throw a child's toys around an attic to a lighthouse whose late keeper still welcomes visitors. This team of moonlighting ghost hunters are our first and last defense against uninvited paranormal visitations. Tom Thayer and Craig Piligian of Pilgrim Films (American Chopper) are the executive producers.moreless

    Current TV
    Vanguard is an award-winning documentary series on Current TV that explores some of the most shocking and controversial political and social issues facing the modern world. Vanguard aims to uncover stories that are often overlooked, and journalists Adam Yamaguchi, Kaj Larsen, Christof Putzel and Mariana van Zeller travel to all corners of the globe to capture these stories on handheld (and sometimes hidden) cameras. Currently in its fourth season, Vanguard is widely praised for its investigative reporting style while venturing into territory often avoided by mainstream news outlets. Whether it's exploring the reasons behind the shockingly high occurrences of rape on Native American reservations, or why the violent pirate lifestyle is so seductive to young, impoverished Somalis, Vanguard explores the questions that other programs are afraid to ask. Traveling to highly dangerous destinations to cover these stories doesn't come without risk, and in March 2009, former Vanguard journalists, Laura Ling and Euna Lee were detained in North Korea for allegedly crossing the North Korean-China border while covering a story on human trafficking. The journalists were eventually sent home in August 2009, after former U.S. president, Bill Clinton arrived in North Korea to negotiate their release. Though Laura Ling and Euna Lee are no longer a part of the Vanguard team, Laura shares her experience in a 30-minute interview with Mariana van Zeller that aired on Current TV on May 19th, 2010.moreless

    "Between the world we see, and the things we fear... there are doors. When they are opened... nightmares becomes reality". That's according to the introduction of this series which dramatizes the "true" stories of people who have been haunted. In this docudrama, the actual people who have experienced the paranormal recount their stories on-camera, as the frightening events of their stories are re-enacted. (Fearing ridicule, some of the witnesses are shown only in silhouette.) Filmed in a very cinematic style, A Haunting sets out to frighten, providing a few genuine chills in most episodes. Many of the stories contain common elements (moving into an old house where people have died, spirits attaching themselves to young children) and a predictable ending (spirit possession, or as often as not, the staging of an exorcism.) A Haunting began as two specials ("Connecticut" and "Georgia") before being turned into a series.moreless
