After the run of “Destination Truth”, he started working on the paranormal television series “Stranded”; each episode of the show features a three person team made up of paranormal skeptics and enthusiasts, who spend several days together at some of the most haunted locations in North America. The show was short lived however, as it only lasted for six episodes during its first season.
