The first time the revolutionary show concept came to light was back in the year 2005/06, which was to be a drama crime show. I sat in part with a screenwriter, developing the idea of a show where someone would play me in a true crime/drama based program, which would see many of the cases I had already assisted in, come to fruition on the television screen. Oh the idea/concept was fantastic indeed, with much anticipation of all the good old drama, mystery, and intrigue one would want in a Psychic Crime show! Oh yes there was another show that just came out at the same time as we were thinking on doing this show. Medium went on to be very a successful program and our idea sat in the development stage and all the show episodes I still hold in email from those day of going back and forth with the screenwriter.
The year was 2008, and once again, I began to pitch the Psychic Profiler idea to producers and companies who were interested in such a show. One particular company was out of Toronto Canada and wanted to deliver a factual/nonfactual basis for this show. I found that interesting as some of the show would be truthful, yet remain with fictional characters to fill in portions of the show to make it watchable!? I know right, it just doesn't seem proper; however, we went on to shoot a teaser/pilot of sorts with actors and improvisations that really took me back. I had International Police Chief Kevin Smith as part of the skype calling along with a couple other individuals who were on shows that fell to the wayside. It was a funny time and something I really wasn't pleased with let's say. Nevertheless, this too, didn't come to fruition and perhaps for the better as we kept moving on and looking for a proper home for my idea and concept.
Here we are since the initial Pilot shoot and casting for the show I created and will host. It has had it's ups and downs throughout the years, as my friend and partner in the second casting of the show, went to bed one night and never woke up. International Police Chief Kevin Smith, a very highly regarded, and respected human being, seemed to have other plans in his life. He took a nights sleep and gently drifted off into Heaven. He'll always remain sadly missed by many; however, those of us who over the years come to know Kevin well, we hold him dear in our hearts forever. Yes, a pilot was filmed and a teaser was developed from a double homicide we investigated. It was shown at Real Screen twice, and at the Cannes Film Festival In France twice, to potential buyers from networks and companies. Somehow, or somewhere along the lines, this show that should have been picked up immediately, got over shadowed by missed opportunities. It had its run and again, we are at a stalemate in going any further with everyone involved.
Now, today... yet another opportunity has arisen! An Emmy Award Winning Director approached me, and we have come up with the set skills, along with experience in putting something viable together for the Networks. The concept is undeniably the best to date! Based on all the cases I am working at present, and those I have waiting for me to work along side Law Enforcement, we have striven to bring something no one has ever seen before to a reality show that is beyond anyone's thinking. Cross your fingers, as we take flight in the attempt to finally get this show launched, picked up and on your television screen!
Eight years in the making and finally here it is! Oh, during this time it wasn't easy, as project after project kept coming up, putting this body of work on the back burner. It was a huge task to say the least; however, with all the trials and tribulations, it finally peeked its head out, and took off like wild fire! I have over the years spoken of bringing this to fruition, to give voice to the many families who wanted their stories told. I thought long and hard on how to present it in the proper context for them and for myself. Putting a book out there is no easy task, and putting a book out there about true crime cases, solved by a Psychic Medium, even more difficult!
I found my place, my refuge if you will, in the solace the families gained from closure of their cases. That is where the principle idea sat. It was to give the focus on them, explaining in detail without cluttering up the facts between all the pages within this book. I needed to express something more on a two fold scenario. Giving voice, and meaning to their loved ones, who have perished to heinous crimes, and for those who were found alive, and brought home safe. Also, to the skeptics who have been silenced indefinitely by this book. The writing is on the wall, in plain sight, bigger, and bolder than ever!
Complete, well documented information that includes, Law Enforcement testimonials, family letters, eye witness accounts, and behind the scenes never before seen to the public collaboration between many offices for each case. It has text messages, emails, photos, and much more. Proof... Oh Hell Ya! Law Enforcement do indeed use Psychic Mediums to solve crimes!
As my wife and I were driving yesterday 3.5 hours to the Radio show on 88.7 FM The River in Mount Forest, many city names passed us by, and I could mention each case I assisted Law Enforcement & Families with from those cities. The Host, Trish, asked me a question to this thought, which folks will hear Wednesday April 4th and repeated again on Sunday April 8th, as I stated, from my home town, London, Woodstock, Arthur, the entire drive was lined with so many cases I have helped with.
You never realize things like this, until something this significant is before your eyes, as each city sign we passed was in front of mine. Reflection in signs or was it signs for my Reflection?
Either way, it showed me as another question was asked during the show "When will I retire from doing this?"
I thought for a brief moment, thinking about all those signs and the families I have helped along my drive. My answer, "I can't retire!"
It is what it is!
