Vatican and Discovery Channel Team for the Exorcist Files

The Vatican and the Discovery Channel have teamed for a new series called The Exorcist. The show combines an unprecedented pairing between experts from the Catholic Church and television, in recreated accounts of real-life demonic possession and hauntings based upon Vatican case files.

Discovery Channel President Clark Bunting offered to EW: "The Vatican is an extraordinarily hard place to get access to, but we explained we're not going to tell people what to think...The work these folks do, and their conviction in their beliefs, make for fascinating stories." The show will include interviews with the Church's top exorcists (who rarely step into the spotlight with their profound abilities) as well as eventual on screen "demon purges."

The Exorcist will air this Spring.
