TCA: Destination America to Host Live Exorcism

Halloween-Themed Stunt to Air Oct. 30

Destination America will look to scare up viewers by televising a live exorcism on Oct. 30, the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association tour.

The special, Exorcism: Live! will take place at the original Exorcist House in the suburbs of St. Louis where the ritual was performed on Roland Doe in 1949, said network officials.

The special will feature the cast of the network’s series Ghost Asylum, as well as psychic medium Chip Coffey.

“As we step into one of the most haunted and well-known spirit destinations in America, Exorcism;Live! will show exactly what is inside this infamous, highly dangerous and possessed home.” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. “By actually exorcising this iconic house live, Destination America will do what it does best — bringing never before seen experiences to television”.
