The future of reality TV could be kids who think they’ve had past lives.
A Los Angeles production company is currently holding a nationwide casting call for children who claim to have, or have had, past life memories for a new reality series, “Ghost Inside My Child,” scheduled to air on the Bio Channel later this year.
A pilot episode of the series aired a few months ago, with three kids who had gone through various steps of recovering memories of their alleged past lives.
Now, producers Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina — who are married to each other — are looking for other families with kids who, as the request states, “have inexplicable memories and experiences of another life.”
“We were pregnant at the time when the idea first came to us,” Fincioen told The Huffington Post. “We thought what would we do if this happened with our daughter? It really was a phenomenon. We wanted to tell these parents’ stories without trying to prove or disprove them.”
Messina said the “my kid has a past life scenario” can’t help but raise questions.
“I don’t know what I’d do if my daughter turned out to be Grandma Messina,” he told HuffPost. “What do you do? Ignore it? Explore it? Hope it goes away?”
