BIO Channel is set to premiere Celebrity Ghost Stories, a series where stars recount real-life encounters with the paranormal, on Oct. 3.

(“In a chilling twist of irony, the haunting takes place in his bedroom closet,” the press release teases.) Then you’ve got John Waters, Rue McClanahan, Joan Rivers, Carrie Fisher, Greg Grunberg, Debi Mazar, Barry Williams, Illeana Douglas, Lili Taylor, Tom Arnold, Morgan Fairchild, Scott Baio, Gina Gershon, C. Thomas Howell, Eric Roberts, Justine Bateman, Carnie Wilson, Dee Snider, Teri Polo, Lisa Rinna, Elisabeth Rohm, Nia Long, Traci Lords, Sammy Hagar, Ernie Hudson, Jay Thomas, Ali Landry, John Salley, James Kyson Lee, Kelly Carlson, Federico Castelluccio, and Anson Williams (HAPPY DAYS’ POTSIE, who’s most recently been directing episodes of ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager).
