A relatively new series on cable’s TLC will investigate the accuracy of claims that the Statler Hotel in Buffalo is haunted in an episode that airs at 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27.
The series, “Paranormal Lockdown,” follows paranormal investigators Nick Groff (“Ghost Adventures”) and Katrina Weidman (“Paranormal State”) for 72 hours as they are locked inside a haunted location looking to capture paranormal evidence.
The series premiered in March of 2016.
TLC is carried on channels 98 and 166 on Spectrum, which recently replaced Time Warner Cable.
Here’s a TLC description of the Jan. 27: “In this episode, Nick and Katrina arrive in Buffalo at the 18-story Statler City Hotel – the largest building they’ve ever investigated. The former ‘Grand Dame of Buffalo’ once played host to presidents, jazz legends, and the upper crust, but the secrets buried in its seedy underbelly by notorious mobsters are dying to get out. After wedding guests were horrified when an apparition appeared in a photograph, Nick and Katrina pursue the link between the glamorous Terrace Room and the decrepit Turkish Bath directly below it. But their state-of-the-art equipment soon reveals a story kept silent within the hotel's walls for decades.”
