Getting a lock up on the inside of that door in the lobby, all right, let's, get in position. My roll sound stand by camera. Okay, is everyone on set ready time speed every week on the travel channel series, the dead files, steve de shavi, a former new york city, homicide detective? What happens? It does not have a happy ending and amy allen a physical medium.

He used to do a lot of bad things down here, investigate paranormal cases across the country, but they never meet until they reveal their findings at the very end, pulls out. A gun puts one right in his chest.

What making the dead files one of the more complex tv series ever produced now you'll, see how it all happens. What do you see on your wall? [, Music, ], [ Applause, ] restaurant buildings. Every weekend, when the show airs, we ask for submissions for help.

We got 94. So far this week we're, really trying to find the people who are the most desperate for steve and amy to come and investigate their case. The small towns in the middle of missouri, a woman, basically rescued an old historic movie, theater from a wrecking ball.

She's, got pages of experiences. I like it. We haven't done a movie theater, let's, pull the deed, let's. Just get it out to steve, see how he feels about it. Now that they've decided weeks of conducting preliminary research, securing local access and booking elaborate travel arrangements can begin.

The challenge here is, we can't, tell amy anything. She's, going to arrive at the airport and be surprised when she finds out where we're going [ Music, ] amy insists on going into every investigation completely blind, even refusing to know the city or state.

The team is headed until she arrives at the airport - oh god, not knowing, where i'm. Going is one way to prevent. Biases the production crew protects the details further by choosing airports far enough away from location that amy must travel hours by car.

I don't know what to expect, and that makes it exciting. Amy's, clandestine journey continues, steve and the producers meet with their distraught clients face to face for the first time so kim i'm glad i'm here.

You sounded pretty upset about what's going on in this place. I am, i am ecstatic that steve and amy are here whatever is here, has escalated to a point um that i couldn't ignore anymore. The amazing thing is when we actually do get here steve with 21 years on the force of the nypd.

He comes up with angles and questions that our producers as good as they are never really think of so it takes the investigation in new directions. It sounds like you got a lot of concern for the people that work here.

Yes, i do definitely want all their staff members, maybe kids somebody might have been here before she bought the place tomorrow. We're gonna be really really busy. Following a lot of these leads, the clock is ticking.

Steve has only three days to dig into the secret history of the location without knowing if it will ever match up with what amy encounters. We have no idea which direction amy's. Gon na get pulled, so we just have to be ready for anything.

Now the producers begin the detailed process of preparing the property for the late night walk. She walks around most of the night in in complete darkness, so we get glow, sticks uh, just mark it. On the ground, just so that it calls attention, so she doesn't, hurt herself besides obstacles and hazards, other distractions can trip up, amy come to the location and look for anything that could be leading or misleading for amy matt anderson is the only Person amy allows herself to interact with during her walk right.

Here is the name of the place that we're in we don't want that you want to cover it yeah to help amy, keep focus matt and the producers spend hours meticulously, hiding the details at every location. We just try to take those factors out as much as possible: [ Applause ].

Now the producers and crew settle in to await amy's arrival. I never know where i'm going, so i don't know if i'm going to a house or business or vacant lot. This is the producing team and, while amy is doing the walk, we are sequestered to maintain the integrity of her investigation.

The crew is prepared for wherever amy's, almost trance-like state might lead them. I think it's about four degrees and uh. We're. We're dressed heavily, we have multi-layers on the thing is shooting with amy.

You can't, stop her. You never know where she's. Gon na go, she could be pulled five blocks. The other way very bad. Things happened down here. We're watching her on the monitors we're, taking notes and uh.

It goes fast as soon as i walked in. I could hear people whispering shh. She's here, amy's, walk starts at nightfall and often lasts several hours, leaving her physically and emotionally worn out. My walks can be pretty intense.

Okay. I got ta take a break. I'm drained the walk is over and by morning steve has already begun the next leg of his investigation. A lot of people ask me what you do now similar to when you work homicides in some ways.

It is because i'm looking for that one little detail that could break the case and it usually starts with local experts that can provide shocking insight into the location's dark past. She just simply disappeared and they found her 17 days later.

Steve will tell us what he wants to follow up on what he thinks important. I want to autopsy protocols if they have them or i want a car on his report, detail of the victim. You know as much as i can on the bodies at this point.

Steve has no idea which leads will pay off, so he gathers as much information as he can to see what sticks on the phone you mentioned that uh. This homicide had to do with a love triangle. It did i miss being a detective so much that when i get to talk to guys like the sheriff, it just brings me back to that that camaraderie of law enforcement - they heard him say if you don't leave my wife alone.

I'm, going to kill you. He says that steve's, a highly professional homicide investigator i enjoyed working with him after five days of managing two completely isolated investigations. The producers are ready for amy and steve to reveal their findings to each other and their desperate clients.

For the first time we are minutes away from the reveal and we keep the clients completely separated from amy. We don't want amy to even see them and be influenced by it until the moment, the cameras roll.

We're extremely excited and anxious to talk with her and to find out what her findings are. It's, always interesting meeting the clients i don't know what's. Gon na happen. It's, always the most fun and nerve-wracking part of the week.

It's in this moment. During each episode's, climactic reveal when everyone's, hard work hopefully pays off. We want to make sure that when we get to the reveal, we have all the answers that the clients expect from us from amy's, otherworldly walk, she was running and it seemed dark.

I have such respect for amy and for her gifts and steve's fact-finding mission. I got his photo as well to the behind-the-scenes professionals who juggle it all. I never get a chance to thank the crew.

I want them to know publicly and i want the fans to know these are the hardest working guys. I've ever met as they help real people discover the unexplained secrets in their own homes. Thank you and grateful so grateful and a chance to answer the ultimate question you stay and fight.
