WE tv is looking to capture viewers with a new paranormal docuseries, Ghosts In the Hoodset to bow on WE tv Jan. 5, 2017.

The six by one-hour series follows the ghost-hunting exploits of the OPO (Official Paranormal Operations) team. Led by CEO Defecio Stoglin, the team goes where other ghost hunters typically don’t – bringing their signature humor along with them.

On each episode, OPO responds to two different clients in distress. Whether they live in a haunted home or run a business plagued by spirits, the company attempts to resolve unexplained issues for their clients, by either proving or disproving that something paranormal is plaguing them.

Over the course of the season, OPO will investigate unexplained and spooky phenomena in Los Angeles, including a haunted funeral home in Compton, a South Central piñata shop beset by spirits, a family fun zone that’s making customers and staff strangely ill, a grocery store possibly inhabited by Santa Muerte, an Inglewood property for sale whose resident spirit has yet to move out and a downtown L.A. bar where employees are scared by a sinister presence.

Marc Juris, WE tv president, said the OPO team brings “a unique blend of humor along with out-of-the-box investigative techniques.”

“While they take the job seriously, they don’t take themselves too seriously, making for a ghost-hunting series unlike anything else that’s out there,” he said in a statement.

Ghosts in the Hood is produced for WE tv by Gurney Productions and executive produced by Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney. Mike Odair and Todd Hurvitz also executive produce. In-house executive producers for WE tv are Lauren GellertDavid Stefanou and Sitarah Pendelton-Eaglin.
