TV show description:
Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) has a great gift that’s also somewhat of a curse: she can see, hear, and speak to dead people. Those who communicate with Melinda have unfinished business left on Earth and need her help in order to finally cross over to the Light and rest in peace.
Melinda’s paramedic husband, Jim Clancy (David Conrad), worries about the toll that helping the dead takes on his wife. Andrea (Aisha Tyler), her best friend and an employee at Melinda’s antique store, is fully supportive and takes care of the store when she has to run out and help a lingering soul. But, while Jim and Andrea are convinced about Melinda’s ability, later friend Delia Banks (Camryn Manheim) is a bit more skeptical.
Conspiring against Melinda and her mission is Romano (John Walcott). Melinda enlists the help of Professor Rick Payne (Jay Mohr) to help her in the battle of good vs. evil. She warns fellow ghost whisperer Gabriel Lawrence (Ignacio Ariel Serricchio) against the evil forces of Romano but Gabriel isn’t who she thinks he is. He, too, is working for the dark side which is painful enough for Melinda to grasp, but even more so when she learns that Gabriel is her half-brother.
