Question: In the CBS movie Living with the Dead, who did Ted Danson portray?

Televisionary:

He played celebrity psychic James Van Praagh, who, like Crossing Over's John Edwards, claims to be able to contact the dead. A former sitcom writer and Paramount paralegal (and no, that doesn't mean he specialized in supernatural law), Van Praagh says he used to see spirits all the time as a child, lost the ability at the age of eight or nine and regained it 20 years later.

Whether he can or not, his success is out of this world — his 1998 book Talking to Heaven: A Medium's Message of Life After Death was a bestseller. And the spirits certainly smiled upon the Danson movie, which was a ratings winner.

Dead set on seeing more of him? You're in luck. Beyond with James Van Praagh, a syndicated TV show, is set to debut this fall.
