It has a lot of ties to American history and it has never been studied on this scale before. We have a unprecedented access to that. We already have people in the field there, working and we’ve already thrown a ton of research into it. We’re constantly working on it. In fact, I was just talking with production today . So yeah, it’s amazing the stuff we’re doing with this show. “
Alvis shares Gatollari’s enthusiasm, saying what’s really cool about the show is how the two are going to “get out” of their comfort zones with this new venture. “We investigated 49 different states across the country – we’ve been to every type of place you can imagine, from a jail, some mental hospitals, to Victorian mansions, but we’re going bigger with this one in the meaning, “he said. “We’re just not going to a place to have an experience or try to document it – we’re really going into this aspect of cultural belief and what creates haunting, what are the cultural ideas behind that?” Does it change from location to location? “
The investigator further reveals how the two will delve deep into the cultural beliefs behind paranormal phenomena. “I think it will be something not only refreshing, but something that has really never been done on this scale,” Alvis added. “I think it’s going to be something fresh and new, so we’re really excited.”
