Ghost Whisperer - Jennifer Love Hewitt

Hi guys,
 
An all new GHOST WHISPERER broadcasts tonight and this is the episode that you don't want to miss.  It turns up the mythology of Season 5, big time.  
In "Lost In The Shadows" Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Jim (David Conrad) grapple with the classic parenting dilemma of the bad seed playmate -- but in their case their son's playmate is a ghost.  The dilemma turns into a crisis when Aiden (Connor Gibbs) disappears, led away by the young ghost (Madison Leisle).  Melinda, Jim and half the town go into overdrive searching for the lost boy, few understanding that behind the story lurks the malevolent hand of the Shadows...  

P.K. Simonds and Laurie McCarthy did a brilliant job of writing "Lost In The Shadows"! And, Kim had a blast directing the episode.  

For all you train and travel aficionados, this episode represents the first time that any production has shot in Griffith Park's Travel Town during the past decade — it's a fabulous, daunting world that Ghost Whisperer is opening up to viewers this week.  Check out Travel Town yourself by clicking here. BTW:  we're quite sure with all the history in that place (train cars that were pulled out of the San Francisco bay, for example), it's a haunted place.

This episode guest stars:  David Clennon as Carl the Watcher (The Philanthropist, Callers), Sean O'Bryan as David Miller (Lie To Me, Flash Forward) and Jenni Blong as Linda Miller (Big Love, True Blood), and the amazing Madison Leisle as Julia Miller (The Mentalist, Grey's Anatomy). Madison (Julia) and Connor (Aiden) were the dynamic duo when we were shooting this episode — these two very young actors were so focused and sweet.   Of course, Love, David, Camryn, Jamie and Christoph delivered in spades by throwing themselves into the emotional journey of finding a missing child.

Musically, this episode features "Up Up & Away" by Shelly Fraley and the very powerful "Float Away" by Lindsey Ray. For The Ghost Whisperer playlist, please click here.

As always, in the theme of this week's episode, we continue GHOST WHISPERER's TOTAL ENGAGEMENT EXPERIENCE by inviting you to join in the GHOST WHISPERING with our video blog series.  Ghost Whispering takes you behind the scenes with our cast, writers, directors and crew as they share everything they know about our ghost world.   Check out P.K. Simonds GHOST WHISPERING about the new mythology— you're in for some real surprises here; check out Kim GHOST WHISPERING about a childhood experience that inspired her, as a director, on  "Lost in the Shadows"

We encouraged you to go toe-to-toe with the spirit world through our new online game  "Catch a Shadow" announced on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Your mission?  To search for hidden shadows located throughout our online assets and report back your findings. How'd you do?  We were amazed at how many of you joined the search.  The top 3 shadow catchers were:
 
@Lauragwfan: The first person to find a shadow. (GREAT GOING, LAURAGWFAN!)
 
@Courtney_17: Second runner-up in the game (and our biggest twitter user) (COURTNEY_17, WHO KNEW?)
 
@Jniems: The first (and only) person to find all the shadows  (JNIMES: QUIT YOUR DAY JOB AND HANG OUT A P.I. SHINGLE!)
 
Congratulations and thank you for joining in!
