Based on the novel The Ghost Hunters by Neil Spring, Harry Price: Ghost Hunter is described as “a thrilling, spine chilling mix of real history, fiction and the famous legend of Harry Price.”

Executive producer Jo Wright commented: “It’s a great thrill to be making Harry Price: Ghost Hunter for ITV. To be able to combine the book by Neil Spring with a script by Jack Lothian has been a delight, and we look forward to making this for our ITV audience.”

ITV’s Director of Drama, Steve November added: “Harry Price is an intriguing character at the very heart of the drama. Jack Lothian’s wonderful script is a skilful blend of fact and fiction as Harry’s past, his fascination with the paranormal and his faith in science are all real yet set against a fictional backdrop of political conspiracy and scandal.”
