Season 3 Finale

Written and directed by the show's wonderful creator John Gray, we wanted to end this season with a bang- tying up some loose ends that have been with us since the beginning of the series. Melinda's family clearly has a more complicated history than she had ever expected... and by the end of the show, she's got a whole new mystery to solve. What'd you think? read more

GW Stranglehold

Hey GW fans!Tonight's episode #317 “Stranglehold” focuses on the spirit world and possession. This episode was really fun to do -- because we start branching into a new area of the mythology of Ghost Whisperer. The episode begins the unveiling of the phenomena of displaced spirits and possession. Eric Laneuville (who was nominated for an Emmy last season for directing an episode of LOST) directed this episode. Eric really did a great job.P.K. Simonds (Executive Producer) and Laurie McCarthy (Co-Executive Producer) wrote it together. Tess Harper, who played Tommy Lee Jones' wife in this year's Academy Award Winning No Country For Old Men, is the guest star who plays the mom. She did a terrific job, don't you think?Also in this episode we see the return of Weeds star Martin Donovan, returning as Tom Gordon, as well as Ignacio Serricchio (General Hospital) who plays Melinda’s brother, Gabriel. As for music- we feature a great song by Liz Stahler called “Someo... read more

From the World of the Sexiest Star....

Alright — before we get started, have you seen the cover of the May 5 TV Guide? Jennifer Love Hewitt is featured as the 'Sexiest Woman on TV.' She wins hands down, we can tell you. And did you see today's issue of People? Love is featured as one of the 100 Most Beautiful People. Having worked with her for 3 1/2 years — we say she is the most beautiful person inside and out. Truly!It's the end of the week and you know what that means — another installment of Ghost Whisperer. "Deadbeat Dads" had unique comedy flair to it. The script was beautifully written by our newest addition to the Ghost Whisperer writing staff — Mark Perry. Mark joins us from the writing staff of Brothers & Sisters. He's worked with P.K. Simonds who jumped aboard the Ghost Whisperer train at the beginning of Season 3 (as you all are very well aware!). Mark and P.K. worked together on Party of Five (Jennifer Love Hewitt's old stomping ground).Mark's script made us laugh during production &... read more

Don't Turn Out The Lights...

Hey GW Fans-Tonight’s episode 315 “Horror Show” was a fun one to put together. In this episode Melinda investigates a local college student who experiences hauntings- straight out of the movies. It’s a show like we’ve never had and Ian had a great time directing it.When coming up with the storyline for this episode, the writers and post-production departments alike watched dozens and dozens of scary movies for inspiration. By the end of it, I think we all became masters of scare! If you watched it tonight you’ll have noticed that it pays homage to many classic horror films like Psycho, The Exorcist, The Grudge, Chucky, The Blair Witch Project and I Know What You Did Last Summer (starring Jennifer Love Hewitt!) among others.Speaking of Love, she was a real trooper while shooting this episode. I mentioned in another blog that she had to run around on set for several hours chasing our ghost, and hurt her ankle! Thankfully she’s almost completely bette... read more

GW SLAM

Hello, Tonight's episode is an encore of “SLAM.” Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) investigates a high school haunting, which involves Delia's (Camryn Manheim) son Ned. This was the show which introduced our new 'Ned' Christoph Sanders who is our new resident teen heart-throb. Because of the terrific response we had to him when he came onto the show we've picked him up to be a regular on the show for next year. Lucky him...and lucky us! We also brought back Omid Abtahi (Sleeper Cell) as Grandview's blogger, Justin Yates, who is trying to find out anything (dirt or otherwise) on Melinda. Incidentally, the writer named Justin after one of the guys we have working in our Digital Media Department, Justin Fisher. The show also features the hit song "Apologize" by One Republic (Mosley/Interscope). Also be sure to check out a little behind the scenes action at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfWm7-y5hJU. Well I (Ian) just finished directing next week's original episod... read more

"Bad Blood" Secrets Revealed! Plus: The Last Webisode

Hello!Well, this week's show is one of our favorites, "Bad Blood." It's scary, theatrical, and fun. We call it our "haunted house" show. The house where it was shot is on the Universal back lot and was originally built for the musical film Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, which starred Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds. You may recognize some of our guest stars: Alan Ruck of Spin City and Ferris Bueller's Day Off; Kay Panabaker of Summerland; and Kathleen York from The West Wing. The music is fun and in addition to Mark Snow's quirky score it features Ben Lee's “Love Me Like The World Is Ending" (New West records), and Two Hours Traffic's "Better Never Than Late."As an interesting aside when you see the ending of the show, there is an explosion, which was originally planned to be bigger, but the California fires were still burning when we shot the show and we felt we should be more conservative rather than go all out with a giant "fireball."This week is the posting of the last... read more

Back to work at GW!

OK, before we proceed out of the gate on Episode 305 — "Weight of What Was" that aired tonight — we first want to note that the strike is over and that the GHOST WHISPERER crew, writers and actors are gearing up to start shooting new, original episodes for this season which will be broadcast as soon as we can get them to CBS. Coming to work this morning was very exciting — it's the first time in many weeks that the Universal Lot (where we shoot GHOST WHISPERER) was populated with people instead of a bunch of parked production trucks and vans. There were people going through the main gate, people on bikes doing production runs, people in crew vans scouting locations, people towing and driving rigs with gigantic artificial trees (for Clint Eastwood's movie — keep an eye out in theatres for it) and wardrobe racks being rolled through the streets. The CSI crews opened up their stages, and Desperate Housewives began putting Wisteria Lane back in order (after their tor... read more
