Graphic Novels Come to Life on Ghost Whisperer
A graphic novelist's livelihood — and life — are threatened when a vengeful ghost takes over his pen, using it to predict violent events that start to come true. "On Thin Ice" is very special episode that takes you into a world Ghost Whisperer has explored on multi platforms (comic books, graphic novels, interactive DVD special features, on-line assets, Comic-Con, etc.), but NEVER explored in a TV episode. On April 2, Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) will experience the spirit world like you've never seen it before — through a haunted graphic novel that comes to life. You won't want to miss this stunning all new original episode guest-starring Margaret Cho!
In "On Thin Ice," Ghost Whisperer's Emmy nominated visual effects team has created a unique digital world that pushes the envelope to new levels rarely experienced on network television. As Avatar has moved feature films into the 21st Century, Ghost Whisperer has done the same for television. The Ghost Whisperer visual effects team (headed up by Armen Kevorkian and Art Codron) has succeeded in breaking new ground in "On Thin Ice", far surpassing their Emmy nominated work on Ghost Whisperer's "Ghost in the Machine" episode.
"On Thin Ice" was written by Co-Producers Melissa Blake and Joy Blake. It was directed by Executive Producer Ian Sander. The art featured in the show is by graphic artist Gabriel Hardman.
This episode guest stars: Margaret Cho as Professor Avery Grant (Drop Dead Diva); Eddie Shin as Damon (Castle, Navy NCIS); Nathan Halliday as Shane (CSI, Cold Case); Cole Williams as Collin (Entourage, Heroes); Eve Gordon as Mariah (Medium, Grey's Anatomy); Dwier Brown as Jeff (Criminal Minds)
Musically, this episode features "Don't You Know You're Beautiful" by Seabird (EMI Christian Music Group); "Safe" by DoubtingParis; "Falling Stars" by Latch Key Kid; "Radio Edit" by Car Stereo Wars (Greg Records); and "Crazy Ride" by Michelle Branch (Warner Bros.)
