In Travel Channel’s new series, Portals to Hell, television personality and executive producer Jack Osbourne, and paranormal researcher and investigator Katrina Weidman, join forces to explore especially sinister places purported to be doorways to the spirit underworld, investigating each haunted location in search of irrefutable evidence that a spirit world exists, and death is not the end. In each episode, Osbourne and Weidman dive headfirst into a different historical site, examining unusual incidents while utilizing specialized technology and a network of experts to help document and uncover the truth.

Osbourne is also an adventurer and paranormal investigator who has documented harrowing face-to-face encounters with the unexplainable in some of America’s darkest and most remote regions. Most recently, he was featured on United Kingdom’s live “Celebrity Haunted Mansion” alongside Jason Hawes (“Ghost Hunters,” “Ghost Nation”) and is currently filming season two of “Portals to Hell.”
