Destination America is premiering a new six-part series on April 15 at 10/9c featuring TV’s first African-American paranormal investigation team. GHOST BROTHERS consists of three best friends– all raised in religious households – who take their healthy curiosity and passion for the paranormal to the next level. The trio tour a series of haunted houses throughout the U.S. to uncover the history and the truth behind the local tales. “Messing with ghosts” is taboo in their families and the bros – Dalen, Juwan, Marcus – aren’t afraid to wear their (frightened) hearts on their sleeves as they investigate things that go bump in the night. They add a refreshing dose of (nervous) laughter to an otherwise scary subject, making the series genuinely entertaining and fun to watch. As these budding enthusiasts take an interest of theirs to the next level, the charismatic GHOST BROTHERS offer a fresh, funny and unique take on the spirit world.

According to legend, these same loyal ranch hands followed the hunter to his camp and hanged him in George’s barn for his crimes against humanity.
