Premise

After being fired from a government facility observing paranormal activity in the US, Professor Holloway Maxwell opens his own paranormal investigation unit in the fictional city of Helen Heights. He soon recruits a group of 5 people with key occupations to assist him. Kayley Mills is a private investigator, Vincent Welsh is a paranormal investigator with a well-documented childhood experience with a demon, Andre Jackson is a science whizz who is fascinated by the scientific explanation of paranormal activity, and husband and wife duo Leslie and Michael Norton are notorious deniers of the paranormal who are open to being proven wrong, becoming a sort of 'pet project' for Maxwell. The series also features Andre's girlfriend (later fiancé and mother of his children) Shantelle in a supporting role and Vincent's boyfriend (later husband) Jack in a supporting role.
