"Ghost Asylum" (TV show) is a reality series on Destination America. Investigating abandoned insane asylums is dangerous and downright terrifying, but in this series, a fearless crew is on a quest to hunt down chain-rattling ghosts and scary apparitions by any means possible, even if that requires luring themselves as the decoy.

The series follows the most passionate paranormal team in America, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC), as they examine some of America's most frightening asylums, sanitariums and mental hospitals. Their goal isn't just to conjure spirits and collect evidence but they are on a mission to physically capture restless souls with their cutting-edge ghost traps and self-trained Tennessean wit.

TWC hunts the most lethal stories; clinics where murdered nurses still roam the halls, hospitals that drive anyone who enters to utter insanity and rehabilitation centers with earth shattering cries coming from the windows. Staffed with experts in every aspect of paranormal investigation these wraith chasers are not your average Ghostbusters but an elite team of ghost whisperers who mesh methodology and skill with old-fashioned common sense and a taste for adventure in order to debunk, disprove or validate each case.

"Respect, detect, collect" — that's the Tennessee Wraith Chasers' motto and the core process they follow in each episode. Led by its founder Chris Smith, the team seeks to separate facts from folklore using every trick in their arsenal attempting to bag a wandering spirit.

In the premiere, the team travels to Old War Memorial Hospital in Scottsville, Kentucky. Throughout its years of operation, this institution transformed from a place of healing to a holding cell for the mentally disturbed. Between the ER and the mental ward, it has been the site of countless deaths and could be bursting with lost souls. Locals believe that a doctor lost his mind while in residence at the hospital and, after his death, his spirit returned for a permanent shift in the exam rooms he loved so much. Now, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers venture beyond the waiting room to track down the doctor's spirit and finally discharge him for good.

"Ghost Asylum" is produced for Destination America by Tremendous! Entertainment with Colleen Needles Steward, Shannon Keenan Demers, and Tim Hamilton as executive producers. For Destination America, Fay Yu is executive producer.
