What do you get when you combine a celebrity barber with two fashion designers, all with a strong curiosity in the unknown? The first and only black paranormal crusaders seeking the truth in the spiritual realm! All based in Atlanta, The Ghost Brothers – Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass, and Marcus Harvey – are flipping the switch in their new discovery+ series Ghost Brothers: Lights Out. The show follows the three best friends as they venture into the unknown. The series debuts Saturday, April 17th exclusively on discovery+ with three new episodes at launch, and five additional episodes following every Saturday.
As the dopest brothers on television hunting ghosts, these candid and unorthodox paranormal investigators explore disturbed hotspots across the country, checking out and sizing up local legends and supernatural stories. They are ready to expose the haunted holdouts still hanging around these locations … and why they don’t leave.
Marcus and Juwan kick off each investigation by entering haunted sites without any prior knowledge of the paranormal territory they are walking into. Dalen, on the other hand, knows all the creepy history. Observing from his own mission control center, he guides his friends through the most active areas of the property. Going in blind, Marcus and Juwan must discover for themselves what matches up with the legend and what does not.
Each member of the team has their distinct role: Dalen a.k.a. “The Bad Boy of Paranormal” is the risk taker; Juwan a.k.a. “Paranormal Poppy” is the suave, pretty boy of the group; and Marcus a.k.a. “The Soul Brother” brings a combination of heartwarming soul and comedy. The trio strikes a healthy balance with Dalen bringing a sense of adventure, Marcus creating a bit more of a relaxed vibe, and Juwan adds the compassion. The balance breathes a fresh point-of-view into the paranormal genre, a new perspective that fans think they know … but they do not.

About The Ghost Brothers:
The Ghost Brothers have spent the last six years as a team chasing ghosts down together. The brothers have a unique story starting with Dalen and Juwan meeting when one was a sophomore and the other a junior at the illustrious HBCU, Clark Atlanta University (CAU), where they were both Kappa Alpha Psi Incorporated. The two would often have random spiritual conversations after Juwan found out that Dalen’s mom was a pastor. In 2010, Dalen met Marcus, who was a barber in the CAU, because he started cutting his hair. Soon after, Dalen introduced him to Juwan and the three became fast buddies. Soon after, Dalen had a dream that they should begin exploring the unknown. He jumped out of bed, kicked Juwan’s door down and said, “WE SHOULD HUNT GHOSTS!” By 2011, they were filming their own investigations in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia, and putting them on YouTube to attract attention. What was fascinating to the guys at the time was that they couldn’t find any people of color in the field. That intrigued them even more and with vigor and tenacity they kept at it. In 201,4 they were contacted by a network and the rest, as they say, is history. The two brought Marcus in right before they filmed the pilot. Since they were all interested in the paranormal and good friends, it was a no brainer for them. Staying true to their church roots, the brothers say a prayer before entering each situation to keep them safe. Also, being raised in the church, they aren’t afraid to tackle the supernatural. They have been taught it’s a natural progression of the afterlife and that it’s nothing to play with.
