Premise and cast
Ghost Hunters is an American reality television series in which a group called The Atlantic Paranormal Society investigates paranormal activity across the United States. The show first premiered on SyFy (previously the Sci Fi Channel) in October of 2004 and has had a successful 10-season run. Jason Hawes has the leading role in Ghost Hunters, as he is the one who created The Atlantic Paranormal Society, or TAPS, with fellow plumber Grant Wilson. Most of the TAPS members are part of a small, blue-collar Rhode Island community and have had personal experiences with the darker side of our existence. The group investigates locations of interest by using various electronic equipment, which is capable of detecting paranormal activity.
TAPS members travel around the country answering calls from ordinary people who think they’ve seen supernatural occurrences. Though Hawes and his partner Wilson admit that not every case has something to do with ghosts (often they are related to poor construction or other reasons), some of the show’s findings are astonishing.
