NBC predicts a future for ‘Psychic’

Peacock picks up reality skein from Court TV

Repeats of Court TV’s “Psychic Detectives” are in NBC’s primetime future.

Peacock has picked up eight half-hour episodes of the unscripted franchise and will begin broadcasting the segs next week. NBC plans to edit two episodes together into hourlong segs and to air them. Wednesdays at 8 starting June 8.

“Psychic Detectives,” now in its third season on Court TV, examines how detectives use mediums to help crack tough cases. NBC found ratings success earlier this year with “Medium,” a scripted drama about a woman who uses her visions to help solve crimes.

This isn’t the first time the Peacock has turned to Court TV for programming. Cabler’s “Forensic Files” had a run on the network a couple of years ago, while “Dateline NBC” regularly teams up with Court TV for single-topic episodes.

Storyhouse Prods. produces “Psychic Detectives” for Court TV, with Andreas Gutzeit as exec producer. Court TV’s Ed Hersh is the cabler’s exec in charge of production for the skein, while the net’s Robyn Hutt created the franchise.
