A&E to air mini-series The Enfield Haunting in October

Directed by veteran television helmer Kristoffer Nyholm and based on true events, the three part mini-series THE ENFIELD HAUNTING was shown on Sky Living in the UK back in May. Now A&E has plans to air it in the U.S. and Canada during the most fun time of the year for ghost stories, the month of October.

The dates for each installment of the mini-series haven't been revealed, but the first part will be making its A&E premiere at 10pm EST on October 9th.

Inspired by the world's most documented poltergeist incident, The Enfield Haunting -- adapted from Guy Lyon Playfair's book "This House is Haunted," is a chilling, three-part drama series based on the terrifying and bizarre real events that took place at an ordinary house in 1977. At the heart of the story is Janet Hodgson, an 11 year-old girl terrorized by the paranormal activity permeating every room... or so she'd like everyone to believe; especially Maurice Grosse, the doting researcher who goes to great lengths to protect her from the strange, dark forces in hopes of making peace with his own daughter's untimely death.

Playfair's book was adapted for the screen by Joshua St. Johnston. The mini-series stars Timothy Spall, Eleanor Worthington-Cox, Juliet Stevenson, Fern Deacon, Rosie Cavaliero, Elliot Kerley, Joey Price, and Matthew Macfayden.

If it seems like you've heard about the Enfield story somewhere else recently, that may be because the case is also the basis for next year's THE CONJURING 2. If you want to get a look at someone else's take on what happened before you check out James Wan's film, tune in to THE ENFIELD HAUNTING next month.
