Magilla Entertainment’s Long Island Medium has been picked up by U.S. cable net TLC for a second season, set to premiere in March 2012.

Magilla will produce 12 half-hour episodes of the series, which follows Theresa Caputo (pictured), a Long Island, New York wife and mother of two children, who works as a self-professed psychic medium.

In the series, Caputo attempts to balances her home life with her work, which proves difficult since – besides performing private and group readings – she also feels compelled to spontaneously pass along messages to people anywhere she goes.

The first season of Long Island Medium averaged 1.3 million P2+ viewers per episode for TLC.
