"Wow! I am so glad I tuned in, this show is going to change the world in a positive way! I am so encouraged to hear these miracle stories!! God is doing something BIG!"
It's a subject that touches every one of us without fail: "what happens after you die?"
A new TV series explores just that through a team of investigators, motivated by their own experiences of pulling victims back from the grave—including a paramedic, an ordained minister, a retired state trooper, and an investigative filmmaker.
The series titled PROJECT AFTERLIFE is produced in a similar format as "Untold Stories of the E.R.," with the retelling of resurrection experiences from the point of view of every person involved in each story.
The result is a fascinating report, dramatizing each documented resurrection account from people who say they have visited the afterlife.
Each episode follows the team as they investigate two stories of the most fascinating contemporary cases of resurrection across America. "People have wondered about resurrection for all of mankind, but modern reports in America have our team of investigators looking at it in a whole new light. They’re on a mission to unlock its mysteries with an exploration into more cases than anyone has ever researched before," said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America.
One viewer remarked about PROJECT AFTERLIFE saying, "Probably the most exciting premiere I have ever watched! Our crew over here was clapping and praising God during the entire show. It was absolutely riveting and had me on the edge of my seat. Everyone needs to watch this show! It is such a breath of fresh positive air. I LOVED that the testimonies on the show gave all the glory to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit! This is not just a spiritual experience, this is truth! Thanks for bringing this show to us."
The show airs on Sunday nights at 10/9 central, on Destination America, or Watch episodes through Amazon Prime, iTunes and Google Play.
The investigators who have researched more cases of resurrection than anyone else before are:
• Johnny Clark, investigative filmmaker – Johnny is the visionary storyteller behind the groundbreaking 2013 documentary "Deadraiser," which examines the ability of humans to raise the dead. Since the film’s release, Johnny has continued investigating resurrection cases increasingly coming to light in the U.S. with an investigative team comprised of other people who share his passion for unlocking clues about how the supernatural phenomenon works.
• Jesse Birkey, paramedic – Jesse’s job frequently puts him on the frontlines of death, but everything changed one day in 2009 when he took part in a resurrection after praying for the patient to come back to life. Jesse has since continued to mix prayer and medicine in his professional duties and wrote a book, "Life Resurrected: Extraordinary Miracles Through Ordinary People."
• Rodger Frievalt, ordained minister – Once a skeptic of all things supernatural, Rodger became so inspired by reports of modern-day miracles that he left behind a successful career in sales and marketing to become a full-time minister and healing evangelist. Since finding his calling, Rodger has witnessed sight being restored to the blind and a brain dead woman coming back to consciousness, strengthening his desire to heal the sick and cast out demons.
• Sam Wagner, retired state trooper – After completing his enlistment in the United States Marine Corps, Sam was a member of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol for more than 15 years. While on duty in July 2008, he witnessed the resurrection of an infant as the child laid dead in his arms. Then in June 2012, he watched his nephew return from the dead following a drug overdose. Sam’s life has been forever altered, and he believes that we all have the power to bring people back from the other side.
