Ghost Adventures is produced by My Tupelo Entertainment for Travel Channel in the U.S.; the show follows Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin as they investigate the most notorious and haunted places in the world.

Then they review and analyse their findings with some of the most respected experts and specialists in the paranormal field.
