The Fox Television production is an original series put together by the producers behind the subscription drama series, Supernova.
The One will be hosted by Andrew Daddo.
Seven psychics will be tested in a series of studio and location challenges.
Seven’s Head of Program Development Brad Lyons said, “I’m far from a believer, but I do admit there were several outcomes in the first show that shocked me.”
Maybe the best one could just predict the winner? Or the ratings for the premiere?
Do we live in a world where psychics can help solve crimes, investigate some of Australia ‘s greatest mysteries or even diagnose illness by mere touch? Prepare yourself for the impossible as THE ONE suspends disbelief and makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
The One: The Search for Australia’s Most Gifted Psychic, hosted by Andrew Daddo, will feature seven of Australia’s top psychics in a quest to determine who is ‘The One’ and challenge the way we think about psychic phenomena.
Each week The One’s psychics will showcase their abilities in a series of studio and location challenges, such as finding a lost child in the bush or getting inside the minds of well-known celebrities.
The One’s expert panel – psychic Stacey Demarco and sceptic Richard Saunders – will decide who stays and who goes until the final episode where Australia will decide which of the remaining three psychics is ‘The One’.
Host Andrew Daddo believes – well, he’s not sure what he believes – but regardless of which side of the fence you’re on, or even if you’re on top of it, it’s difficult to dismiss the psychics’ level of skill and dedication.
“This is a rare chance to sample some unfamiliar territory from close range,” he says. “The One hasn’t been put together by true believers or the newly converted. We’re all up to challenge what we know – what we thought we did, and it’s already starting to flip me out.”
Seven’s Head of Program Development Brad Lyons echoes Daddo’s thoughts saying he’s been amazed by the psychics’ form in the program to date.
“I’m far from a believer, but I do admit there were several outcomes in the first show that shocked me,” says Lyons .
With years of experience, The One’s panellists will be tough judges.
Demarco is an initiated witch, educator and internationally-published author on metaphysical matters of more than 20 years experience.
Saunders has devoted more than a decade to testing psychic theory and is a member of Australian Skeptics, a group that investigates the paranormal from a scientific viewpoint.
THE ONE is an original format developed by David Taylor and David Maher from Fox Television Studios Australia produced in association with Channel Seven.
