German Michael Torres is passionate about the subject matter having grown-up being frightened by tales of La Llorona and El Cucuy. "As long as I can remember, hearing stories about spirits and supernatural occurrences were a part of my upbringing...if you are Latino, you can relate," said Torres, "I believe it's important to bring these stories to light." Staying true to the genre, Torres is also currently shooting a pilot entitled "Paranormal Housewives", a new kind of paranormal show for PowWow Media. In addition, the busy producer has created, developed, and produced a variety of television series, feature films, and new media, including SyFy Channel's award nominated series, "The Chronicle" with Silvio Horta ("Ugly Betty").

The team takes viewers on a personal journey into haunted locations, urban legends and ghost stories, tapping into everything that we don't know about the afterlife, which lies from beyond.
