Discovery’s Travel Channel will premiere the Jarrett Creative-produced series Famously Afraid this November, in which celebrities share their encounters with the paranormal.

In each episode, three celebrities recount their experiences, which include haunted houses, UFO sightings and demonic possessions, to name a few.

The series includes interviews with additional witnesses and the Hollywood stars, including Tori Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), R.J. Mitte (Breaking Bad), Carson Kressley (RuPaul’s Drag Race and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) and American model Amber Rose.

In the premiere episode, America’s Got Talent judge Howie Mandel tells the story of a spirit in his home that targeted his daughter. Then, Queer as Folk actor Hal Sparks recalls how he was able to connect a childhood encounter with aliens to one of his first jobs in the industry. Lastly, former Dance Moms stars Christi and Chloe Lukasiak share how a tour through the LaLauire Mansion in New Orleans left them “scared beyond belief.”

Famously Afraid is executive produced by Seth Jarrett and Julie Insogna Jarrett for Jarrett Creative, with Mark Kachelries and Kathi Watson serving as co-executive producers.

Cathy Garland is executive producer for Travel Channel.

The series premieres Nov. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
