Former NYPD homicide detective Steve DiSchiavi and physical medium Amy Allan are back on the case, bringing their unique skills and perspectives to help solve devastating paranormal mysteries for beleaguered families when THE DEAD FILES returns with all-new episodes beginning Saturday, February 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel. New episodes will launch the same day on discovery+.
For years, the talented duo has been called upon by property owners who are overwhelmed with unexplained activity and in desperate need of answers and resolution. DiSchiavi, a former NYPD homicide detective, and Allan, a physical medium, tackle each paranormal case from their unique expertise and vantage points. DiSchiavi researches the facts around each haunted location, interviewing witnesses, experts and historians. Digging into archives and records, he pieces together a clearer picture of the situation. As a physical medium, Allan sees and communicates with the dead. First assessing each property in a blind walk-through, she uses her gifts to identify what underlying entities reside there and why. Keeping their findings hidden from each other, DiSchiavi and Allan avoid all contact with one another – coming together only at the very end to reveal their shocking discoveries to the property owners, and each other, in an effort to put an end to the activity and help restore peace.
In the premiere episode, Steve DiSchiavi and Amy Allan travel to Bluffton, South Carolina, where a distraught restaurant owner is convinced something evil is out to ruin her business. Aside from the shocking amount of bad luck the owner and her husband have endured, they are also hearing voices, seeing ghastly apparitions and experiencing deteriorating health and drastic mood changes. Their staff are scared, and they fear their customers could be the next targets. As DiSchiavi uncovers a deep and disturbing history of the property, Allan immediately encounters a hoard of entities and shadow figures surrounding the building – waiting to terrorize any that cross their path. Exhausted and out of options, the owner clings to the hope that DiSchiavi and Allan can help stop the dead from overrunning the restaurant and her life.
