New Series Project Afterlife

Afterlife

“Project Afterlife” Examines Tales of People

Who Have Come Back From the Dead

 

The Six Part Original Series Premieres

Sunday, August 9 at 10/9c on Destination America

 

People who say they have visited the afterlife challenge everything we understand about death. If death is the great equalizer, how and why are some victims able to come back from death while others are not?

In Destination America’s all-new series Project Afterlife, a team of investigators motivated by their own experiences with pulling victims back from the grave – including a paramedic, an ordained minister, a retired state trooper, and an investigative filmmaker – launch an unprecedented quest to unlock the mysteries of resurrection with help from real people who say they have gone through it.

Each episode follows the team as they investigate two stories of the most fascinating contemporary cases of resurrection across America. Survivors were in the prime of their lives when an accident or sudden illness led to their untimely deaths, only to inexplicably return to life.

Through cinematic recreations and first-person interviews with survivors, the series explores the mystery of resurrection while bringing viewers up close and personal to the experience. Hear directly from survivors about the moment they realized they were dead, what – and who – awaited them on the other side, what it felt like to die and come back, and how it changed their lives afterward.

“People have wondered about resurrection for all of mankind, but modern reports in America have our team of investigators looking at it in a whole new light. They’re on a mission to unlock its mysteries with an exploration into more cases than anyone has ever researched before,” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. “For fans of ghost and mystery programming, Project Afterlife offers a new take on the genre that’s full of curiosity and hope that there is life after life after death.”

The investigation team pours through case files, examines medical records, and visits key locations in each case to better understand these documented experiences by survivors. Interviews with doctors and family who kept vigil bring investigators one step closer to understanding resurrection by revealing key patterns in the surrounding circumstances, such as loved ones always holding the victim’s left hand during prayer.
