The series comes from Michael Rauch, the executive producer and co-showrunner for USA Network’s Royal Pains. That series is believed to be ending with the upcoming eighth season which will air next year.
Toward the Light will be one of Rauch’s first projects under his two-year deal with CBS. The supernatural series is inspired by the non-fiction book of the same name. Here’s a description of the book by Amy Major:
Stories of ghosts and hauntings have frightened us since the beginning of time. Until recently, few have dared to contact the deceased and discover the true nature of earthbound spirits and the phenomena they create. Our understanding of the afterlife has evolved, and with it the reality that ghosts are just like us, facing many of the same problems we face every day. Spirit rescue mediums are “psychologists for the deceased,” helping them peacefully transition to the other side.
Rauch will write the adaptation and will executive produce with Jonathan Levin and Jason Egenberg.
