Exclusive: Watch a Clip from "Ghost Brothers", the First All-Black Paranormal Reality Series

Exclusive: Watch a Sneak Peek of “Ghost Brothers,” Destination America’s All-Black Ghost Hunting Series

Ghost-Brothers-Destination-America-Exclusive-Clip

The paranormal field is filled with countless mysteries. Why do ghosts wear clothes? Why do space aliens love cows? And most mysterious of all, why aren’t there more black dudes chasing spirits? Now, Destination America is putting one of those mysteries to rest with Ghost Brothers, the first-ever paranormal reality show to feature an all-African American cast.. and we’ve got the first clip from the show!

Juwan Mass, Dalen Spratt and Marcus Harvey are three best friends who’ve all experienced a brush with the paranormal as kids. Now, they’re traveling across the country in search of paranormal evidence in some of the world’s most haunted locations. It’s a concept that sounds a lot like any other ghost hunting reality show, except for one big difference: these paranormal investigators are black. If you’ve ever watched paranormal TV, you know that African American ghost hunting teams are rarer than catching a spirit on camera.

The show is produced by Pilgrim Films, best known for the smash hit Ghost Hunters on SyFy, and is set to air on Destination America on April 15. Fortunately for you, our good friend John E.L. Tenney, who also starred in Destination America’s Ghost Stalkers, flexed his own investigative muscle and managed to dig up the first two minutes from Ghost Brothers‘ second episode! The following clip hasn’t been seen by anyone until now. It’s a Week in Weird exclusive.

There you go, the first two minutes of Ghost Brothers a whole month before it airs. Suck it, Variety.

The six-episode series will see the Ghost Brothers investigating famous haunts like the Magnolia Hotel in Seguin, Texas; Allen House in Monticello, Arkansas; Prospect Place in Trinway, Ohio; Magnolia Plantation in Derry, Louisiana; Delta Queen Steamboat in Houma, Louisiana; and the Fitzpatrick Hotel in Washington, Georgia.

“We’re excited to join the Destination America family and prove that there can be a little humor in the unknown,” said Dalen Spratt. “But the best part about Ghost Brothers is that THIS time, the black guys make it out of the haunted house alive!”

Destination America promises that the series will be a fresh perspective to the ghost hunting genre. Via their official press release:

As budding enthusiasts of paranormal investigation, the GHOST BROTHERS take a passionate hobby to the next level in some of the country’s most haunted locations. By day, Dalen and Juwan are fashion designers with their own label called Loren Spratt, though, in their off time, they have been investigating haunted houses, hotels and cemeteries together since 2011. Marcus, a comedian and “Barber to the Stars,” met Dalen in 2009 and now, as an “experienced” ghost hunter, he considers himself the Peter Venkman of the trio.

Are you ready for a new spin on paranormal investigation? Ghost Brothers airs on April 15 at 9PM PST on Destination America. Until then, you can keep up with the Ghost Brothers themselves on twitter by following @themarcusharvey, @JuwanMass, and @DalenSpratt.

Feets don’t fail me now

10 months 1 day ago

Fuck yes. That goes along with the weird theory that people only see ghosts of their same race/ethnicity/language. I’m interested in what they catch.

10 months 1 day ago

Who came up with that stupid ass theory? Never heard of it before

Jennifer

That’s stupid and not true

I think Bagans and other investigators…

You must not watch a lot of paranormal shows. Ghost and spirits come in all colors and ethnicity, and not being disrespectful but you spoke of language as well comma ethnicity covers language too, if you want to Ghost Adventures they just did a show based strictly on Chinese people comma they’ve done shows strictly on black people and Buddhism in the South so I’m not sure where you get your information from. And in case you didn’t know Black people strongly believe in spirits and ghosts, like they always say “just saying” LOL

Is it a spoof show?

I really hope they take this investigating seriously and not make it like a joke. Real paranormal investigators know this is not a game. Constantly cracking jokes or talking stupid is very disrespectful to the dead. I do have hopes for this show, I guess we’ll have to see.

Ooh then I’ll check it out:)

10 months 1 day ago

As long as they are serious about it, not just goofing. What channel?

Destination America

10 months 1 day ago

10 months 1 day ago

I would watch it just to hear grown men scream. .

10 months 1 day ago

I’m definitely going to watch this!

10 months 1 day ago

Looks interesting, who knows maybe black spirits would respond to a black person better! I mean if you were a slave murdered by a white man, would you trust white ppl coming to talk to you?!

10 months 1 day ago

This is gonna be good

10 months 23 hours ago

Well with this being on destination America it probably means it’s going to be completely fake like all there other shows they have.

10 months 19 hours ago

I’ll definitely watch!

Those destination America shows are so highly produced..it’s comparable with a Bruce Campbell movie.like the hillbillies in a cabin all with guns and a supposed bigfoot type stomping on roof,yet nobody fires a shot.you know why? They don’t wanna.shoot the intern..here’s an idea..why don’t you produce a.Real investigation.and.maybe DA can achieve a degree of credibility

Holly Hagelin

This looks like it will be a great show as they don’t seem to be taking themselves too seriously. . . Ghosts, yes . . . Themselves, nah, they’re having fun with it, and looking for ghosts, too.

10 months 1 hour ago

I’m totally going to watch it! It looks awesome and I think having a different perspective in the field is great. It helps to make Paranormal investigation relatable to everyone. I can’t wait!

9 months 30 days ago

This is going to be. Fun

Linda

it might be good but I can do without the anti-white remarks.

Not Even Wrong

Admit it though, when black people make fun of whites it is pretty funny.

Not Even Wrong

I kept waiting for Chappelle to pop out and this to be a comedy channel skit. Can’t wait for the crossover special of these guys and the Mountain Monsters crew.

Joni Warden
9 months 20 days ago

I am inclined to agree but that standard doesn’t bode well when reversed. So in retrospect…. neither should be done.
I think this group means to make more fun of itself and black people than white people.

Either way we’ll see in the coming episodes. I hope the political correct police don’t ruin it. Already, making a stink about this in no time, flat.

Susan

I really like these guys. I like the show also. I have this show on my recorder. Good Luck guys!

Loved the first few minutes of the show. They made me laugh and intrigued at the same time.
They are now my favorite!!

Being African American myself I am glad to see some of us are ready to admit we’ve seen spirits and that they do exist. I have already set my DVD…

I think that the show is pretty hilarious now that I’ve seen a few episodes. Some of the comments make me laugh out loud. It does put me a little in the mind of Mountain Monsters though which we all know is staged foolishness.

Casey
8 months 12 days ago

Totally will watch..and for the negative comments, I really don’t understand why people have a bad outlook on everything but cry when things don’t go there way, look people it may sound a Lil cheesy but of you put any kind of bad karma out and then understand that you will definitely get nothing but bad karma in one way shape or form back..I don’t think it’s racist at all..it’s always nice to make light of most citations as long as it’s appropriate..

I love the show they crack me up but they did show respect for the dead.
