Ghost Asylum is a docu-series following one of the most passionate paranormal teams in America, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC), as they investigate the ultimate in ghost hunting locations: an abandoned asylum. Rather than focus on supposedly haunted homes, the larger-than-life members of TWC will investigate some of the most terrifying asylums, sanitariums, and mental hospitals in the United States. While other paranormal groups merely try to document paranormal activity, these boys are on a once-in-a-lifetime mission to actually capture a ghost. With a combination of tested paranormal theory, Southern savvy, and backwoods ingenuity, TWC is the most equipped team out there to pull off this seemingly impossible task. Each week, the team will arrive at a new, imposing asylum, looking to separate facts from folklore, and using every trick in their Southern arsenal to bag an otherworldly prize. These frightening locations are every ghost hunter's dream -- and TWC's quest is to make these haunting dreams a reality.
