Ghost Whisperer is an American television series created by John Gray. It first premiered on CBS on September 23, 2005.
The series follows the life of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), a young woman from Grandview, New York, who has the ability to see and communicate with the dead. While trying to live as normal a life as possible, Melinda helps them pass over to the other side by working as a paranormal investigator, sometimes dealing with people who push her away, and disbelieve her ability.
Ghost Whisperer airs Friday nights at 8/7c on CBS. The show is produced by Sander/Moses Productions, in association with ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios.
Ghost Whisperer is based on the work of "Spirit Communicator" James Van Praagh, who is co-executive producer and regularly updates a blog about the show through LivingTV. The stories are also said to be based in part on the work of "Spirit Communicator" Mary Ann Winkowski. Development of the show dates back to at least two years before its premiere.
The show is currently produced by Sander/Moses Productions in association with CBS (originally Paramount Network Television in season one and CBS in seasons two and three) and Channel4 Studios (originally Touchstone Television in the first two seasons).
The show is filmed on the Universal Studios back lot in Los Angeles. One area on the lot is Courthouse Square from the Back to the Future trilogy, though it has been drastically modified to portray Grandview. ...
