'Hollywood Teen Medium' is an actual new TV show
Because of course: E! has greenlit a new reality show called Hollywood Teen Medium.
This title is amazing because it punchily tells you everything you need to know about the series: Star Tyler Henry is a teen (19 years old), he lives in Hollywood, and he’s a clairvoyant (self-proclaimed, of course).
Hollywood Teen Medium will chronicle how Henry “balances his unique abilities with trying to be a regular teenager. Formerly of a small-town and now living in the big city, Tyler has quickly become one of Hollywood’s top mediums, bringing messages from the heavens and profound visions to today’s hottest stars.”
Enthuses E! programming chief Jeff Olde: “This series adds a new layer of mystery and intrigue to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood that our audience is so passionate about. Tyler’s innocent charm puts celebrities instantly at ease, and viewers will see him deliver messages of hope, closure and forgiveness to some of today’s biggest stars as they open up about their lives.”
The millennial medium’s backstory—or, at least, the origin story provided in E’s press release—is that following his grandmother’s death in 2006, Tyler began having “strong intuitive hunches that would later turn into overwhelming visions that proved to be true. After a series of life changing events (including a near death experience), Tyler recognized that his passion, calling and life purpose is to bring clarity, closure and evidence to those he is privileged to read.”
Various psychic shows have become cable TV sensations over the years, from Sci-Fi’s Crossing Over with John Edward to TLC’s Long Island Medium. Will Hollywood Teen Medium be next? Only Henry can tell us!
