Ghost Brothers Series & New Clip Released: Ghost Brothers will return with new episodes on TLC beginning Friday, March 17th at 10:00 pm ET, and you can check out new clips and details below.
"Featuring TV’s first African-American ghost hunters, GHOST BROTHERS features Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass, and Marcus Harvey, budding paranormal enthusiasts on a mission to find out if legendary haunted locations are the real deal. These charismatic characters blend natural curiosity with comedic flair, bringing humor, good manners and southern charm to the spirit world.
In Friday’s episode, the trio travel head into the bayou of Long Leaf, Louisiana to investigate a desolate sawmill that locals have nicknamed the "Mill of Death.” From its opening in 1893 to its closure in 1969, the Long Leaf sawmill was synonymous with horrific working conditions and murder. It's believed employees were murdered by other workers desperate for a promotion, new position or job. The buildings and equipment sit perfectly preserved with some areas harboring a past of tragedy and frightening paranormal activity. Locals now believe that the souls of the numerous employees who suffered tragic fates there are still roaming the property. The GHOST BROTHERS are on a mission to find out who or what is haunting the Long Leaf Sawmill, and why they have remained.
ABOUT THE GHOST BROTHERS
New Episodes air Fridays at 10/9c on TLC.
The GHOST BROTHERS take a passionate hobby to the next level investigating historically haunted and often abandoned locations, testing their own spirit along the way. All raised in religious households, the GHOST BROTHERS were taught that “messing” with the dead is a dangerous business, but some unexplained experiences of their own drove them to find out firsthand just how spooky the supernatural can be. Dalen, Juwan, and Marcus enlist local historians and caretakers to provide the history of the property to better understand what they are facing. When night falls, viewers join the antics of their afterlife investigation as the trio uses local experts, investigative equipment, trigger objects, and most importantly, their southern charm, to help make contact with the other side."

Inside Psycho Podcast Details: "Neither documentary nor straight narrative. Neither radio drama nor true crime story. Inside Psycho is a biopic without the pictures. It's a movie with sound only. Every word is either true or tells a larger truth about the making of this classic movie. This is, first and foremost, an entertaining tale of creation and destruction, birth and death, success and failure, awards and notoriety, fear and loathing, firsts and lasts.
If you thought you knew Psycho, hear it with all new ears.
Inside Psycho weaves an entertaining tale of the horrible mass killings that inspired the movie Psycho and the extraordinary struggles involved in making a movie that, against all odds, became one of the biggest hits of all time. A movie that was the biggest risk of Alfred Hitchcock's career. A movie where the star dies after only 47 minutes. A movie its studio hated. A movie the New York Times called “a blot on an honorable career.” A movie now regarded as one of the finest ever made. A movie that changed...everything.
This is not just a show for film-buffs or horror fans. It's a show for anyone with a love of entertainment who wants to hear about the rollicking adventures behind the scenes of a great motion picture. It's a show for anyone who has ever created something great but was still full of fear and doubts. It's the creative journey, and the hero of that journey is the famed filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock.

Washington, Dead City Book Series Announced: Press Release: "Franklin, TN—The Washington, Dead City series (Permuted Press) is a zombie series like no other. The three books (Gnash, Rend, and Sever) in the series take readers on a horrifying journey through the battle to save a zombie infiltrated Washington, DC.
GNASH: An ancient fundamentalist organization executes several attacks simultaneously across the globe. In the Pentagon, a deadly viral compound is unleashed and the airborne virus turns the Pentagon’s population into zombies. A former Army officer stranded in the Midwest is forced to fight for his life while his fiancé is trapped in the Washington, DC quarantine zone.
REND: Six years ago, the President made the difficult decision to abandon Washington to the undead—and “The Wall” was built to keep them trapped inside. Now, a new presidential election revives the hopes of the nation as one candidate promises the retrieve the Declaration of Independence and Constitution from behind the Wall. A retired CIA agent must go behind The Wall to save America’s most priceless documents.
SEVER: Escaped zombies from behind The Wall have swept across the northeast, their path marked by havoc and death. Into this nightmare world are thrust several unlikely heroes. A full-time National Guard solider, a small group of refugees, a hero from the last zombie war, and a retired CIA operative will all stop at nothing to eliminate the zombie threat—and save the nation they love.
About the Author: A veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan war, Brian Parker was born and raised as an Army brat. He moved all of the country as a child before his father retired from the service and they settled in a small Missouri town where the family purchased a farm. It was on the farm that he learned the rewards of a hard day’s work and enjoyed the escapism that books could provide. He’s currently an Active Duty Army solider who enjoys spending time with his family in Texas, hiking, obstacle course racing, writing and Texas Longhorns football. His wife is also an Active Duty solider and the pairing brings its own unique set of circumstances that keep both of them on their toes. He’s an unashamed Star Wars fan but prefers to disregard the entire Episode I and II debacle. Besides the extensive collection of horror works, he is also the author of several non-horror works, including the children’s picture book Zombie in the Basement which was written to help children overcome the perceived stigmas of being different than others.
