A rising star of the Seattle police, Frank Taylor's guilt over the kidnapping of his son destroys his marriage and costs him his job. Two years later, now a private investigator specializing in finding missing persons, Frank is shot by a suspect, whom he in turn kills. On the operating table Frank (Matthew Fox, Bone Tomahawk, TV's Lost) is declared dead, but then is miraculously revived.
After recovery, Frank begins to have strange episodes, he hears unusual noises and sees people who aren't there, including the suspect he had killed. He realizes that he's still connected to the world of the dead. Desperate and frightened at first, he comes to realize that his hauntings can help him solve cases and save lives, and may ultimately help him solve the mystery of what happened to his son.
Featuring Lynn Collins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, John Carter), Russell Hornsby (Fences), Michael Irby (Law Abiding Citizen) and John Mann (Underworld: Evolution). Created by Rick Ramage (Stigmata) and Andrew Cosby (TV's Eureka).

Currently this title has been announced for Blu-ray only; no DVD version is indicated. If that changes, we'll certainly let you know. In the meantime, we've got an early look at the Blu-ray cover art for you below. This may not be finalized yet, however, and could be subject to change. Our thanks to longtime reader John Cerone for the heads-up about this item!
The 2010 DVD release from Phase 4 Films is discontinued, having gone out-of-print following Phase 4's acquisition in 2014 by Entertainment One ("eOne"). In our write-up above, we're stating that we have no knowledge yet whether Kino Lorber will re-release the show on DVD at the same time they put out its first-ever Blu-ray release. We've received notes from folks who have misinterpreted our story from yesterday as meaning we're unaware of the 2010 release on DVD. We are, of course, aware. As it's no longer being made on DVD, though, we wanted to determine if new DVDs will be manufactured. We'll let you know if we find out anything from Kino Lorber!
