Q: How many episodes did you do of Dead Famous?
We did three seasons (26 eps.), two specials and three back to back live episodes filmed in Los Angeles and aired in Europe. The series originally aired in the UK on Living TV and then BIO channel in the USA. It went on to air all over the world – Australia, Sweden, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Japan, and more.
Q: What happened to Gail’s hair, did she have cancer?
No, Gail suffered from Alopecia due to events going on in her life at the time. She was like my sister, loved her dearly out of respect you can google.uk and research more about what she has been and is still going through.
Q: Was Dead Famous cancelled?
No, the show mainly not renewed due to Gail’s health during the third season shoot. The series was very successful and ratings were extremely well. The series had been picked up and sold in over 15 countries, BIO channel in the USA wanted more episodes, but we could not continue. Gail was a huge, integral part of the show. Early 2006, there was concerns while filming in the United States, so it was decided by Living TV to be responsible and not renew the show at that time. There were plans for a 4th season and talks of a 5th as well. Note: we did have a 4th season list visiting such celebrities as Jimi Hendrix, Wyatt Earp, John Belushi, Kurt Cobain, Three Stooges, Van Gogh, and Freddie Mercury from what I can remember. There was a long list the producer had drawn up which the Network would agree upon.
All of production was saddened the show would not continue. It was a lot of fun doing and we had become a family. While there were talks in possibly replacing Gail, things obviously never moved forward and I feel it would have been difficult as well not having her apart of the show. Our chemistry made the show.
Q: Would you do Dead Famous again?
Yes, I would love to implement the type of equipment I have now and work with the right people, as long as the introduction would allow for more of the evidence I capture. Many great elements involving EVPS were not used in the first three season. I feel we could surpass what we started in the first generation of the series with the type of equipment available today.
Q: What was your favorite episode?
Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Al Capone, and about a dozen more!
