"Haunted Live" is Travel Channel’s first weekly live series, where viewers can help drive the course of the show in real time. The series invites ghost lovers to join the live paranormal investigation alongside the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, a team of paranormal experts that relies on a combination of scientific method and spiritual faith to navigate its investigations.
Each week, the team – comprised of Chris Smith, Steven “Doogie” McDougal, Scott Porter, Brannon Smith and Mike Goncalves – will reveal a new haunted location to the public, keeping it under wraps until the investigation begins to avoid interference or contamination. Then, team members utilize their skills, technology and unique experiments to capture evidence of paranormal activity in a live and unfiltered paranormal investigation. Through an on-location live video stream, viewers can monitor all of the “Haunted Live” activity on Travel Channel’s Facebook Live platform and comment on any findings in real time, directing the team where to investigate next.
On the series premiere, “Into the Fire,” the Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC) begin their first “Haunted Live” investigation in a unique 19th century house. Each floor of this home saw various tragedies, from death by fire to casualties of war. Unsurprisingly, paranormal activity has been reported in every room of the building. With so many spirits roaming the halls, will the TWC be able to cut through the chaos and connect with the other side? Tune in to see one of the Wraith Chasers perform a paranormal solo session in a secret compartment of the home, in an attempt to connect with the soldiers who are believed to have perished there while in hiding.

On the September 21 episode, “The Silver Scream,” the Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC) explore a haunted theater, where every showing comes with a scare. Infamous for its patrons who refuse to leave, this movie house is home to the spirits of a family who were tragically parted by unexpected demise. The spirits of locals who were brutally executed nearby are also thought to have taken up residence inside. Between objects being thrown, mysterious apparitions and entities grabbing at people, this is one theater where nobody sits still. The TWC will conduct part of their investigation from the projector booth, and the film they have in store is sure to keep the spirits on the edge of their seats.
