Travel Channel And Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment Release The Dead Files: Collection 1 On DVD

NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment, a leading producer of lifestyle media, will release The Dead Files: Collection 1 on DVD under its exclusive home video license agreement with Travel Channel. 

Medium Amy Allan and former NYPD homicide detective Steve DiSchiavi have joined forces, combining their two drastically different and often-conflicting skills in an attempt to uncover some of the most unexplainable paranormal phenomena across America.   

The two exercise their respective talents separately, gathering as much information as possible before teaming up to discuss their findings. DiSchiavi takes on a more common approach, researching the case extensively and examining both the history of the location along with eyewitness accounts. By contrast, Allan takes a unique approach to cracking the case, exploring the locations of the murders so that she can communicate with spirits. The moment of truth comes when Allan and DiSchiavi regroup, compare their findings and reveal the compelling, undeniable and often terrifying conclusions they've uncovered.

Memorable episodes from this season include the duo's investigation of a restaurant in Asbury Park, NJ where a powerful dark force haunts the staff, as well as a visit to a "house of dolls" in North Carolina, where the homeowner fears that spirits are contacting her young daughter through her extensive collection of dolls.

DiSchiavi's thorough investigations combined with Allan's psychic prowess promises to keep viewers on their toes in this exciting, mysterious series.

This DVD set is comprised of two discs. It has a run time of 387 minutes and a suggested retail price of $19.98. Street date: September 4, 2012.

The Dead Files: Collection 1 will be available in stores and online wherever DVDs are sold.
