WE: WOMEN'S ENTERTAINMENT TAKES YOU ON A CROSS COUNTRY JOURNEY TO THE OTHER SIDE WITH MEDIUM JOHN EDWARD
NEW SERIES JOHN EDWARD CROSS COUNTRY, PREMIERES MARCH 17 at 10:00pm ET/7:00pm PT
NEW YORK, NY January 11, 2006 – Getting a reading from internationally-acclaimed psychic medium John Edward is a profound moment in a family's life – he connects with their loved ones who have passed away. But what happens after the reading, when that family goes home? On WE's new original series John Edward Cross Country (premiering Friday, March 17 at 10PM ET/ 7PM PT), returns the acclaimed medium to his legions of television fans. Viewers will see how the powerful experience of getting a John Edward reading manifests itself in the lives of the families he helps.
The eight episode, documentary style series, brings the John Edward experience to the next level: The program takes you out of the studio with John as he travels across America to do readings, and follows him as he goes home with some of the families he has helped during his large group sessions. From Orlando to Phoenix, from Los Angeles to Long Island, we go behind the scenes to hear more about each family's personal story. From how their experience with John has helped them cope, to the affects his reading had on their lives and views of the spiritual world, viewers will get an up-close and personal look at each family's journey of healing and growth. The show provides audiences with a more in-depth look at the stories surrounding his readings, and the ways in which John's work impacts people's lives. With great compassion, John Edward Cross Country offers a deeper connection and encourages life's inner journey by exploring feelings of love, loss, and ultimately, acceptance and closure.
"Cross Country is so personally fulfilling for me because it enables me to visit people who I've read, at home, giving me the chance to learn more about those they've lost. And that sometimes helps me get a better understanding of what I saw in their readings," said Edward. "There's an intimacy level that I find between me and the people on this show that I've never experienced before."
John Edward is the author of the New York Times bestsellers One Last Time; What If God Were The Sun; Crossing Over: The Stories Behind The Stories; After Life: Answers From The Other Side; Final Beginnings; and Practical Praying: Using The Rosary to Enhance Your Life. He captivated audiences on his nationally-syndicated talk show "Crossing Over With John Edward," and his many television appearances include The Today Show, Larry King Live, The View, Entertainment Tonight, and Live With Regis and Kelly. Through his work as a psychic medium, he brings comfort and hope to countless fans worldwide, and bridges people to their own spirituality.
