The very first episode was shot right here in the mitt.

Steve Shippy grew up in Grayling and can remember seeing shadow people when he was a kid. He also woke up with burns and scratches on his body; needless to say, his fascination with the paranormal has been lifelong and he's turned it into a career.

He's already produced four films about hauntings right here in Michigan, and now the Travel Channel has picked up a series with him called Haunting in the Heartland.

The show, which debuts in February, will hit six different locations throughout the Midwest, including a home just west of Saginaw in Merrill.

The first episode airs on February 21st at 10 PM ET on the Travel Channel.
