Get Ready For A Reality TV Show About A Teen Psychic In Hollywood

It was just a matter of time before we'd all be blessed with a reality TV show about a teen psychic in Hollywood. E! network just ordered an eight-episode series with the all-telling working title of Hollywood Teen Medium.Tyler Henry is a regular ol' 19-year-old, trying to balance teen life just like anyone else—except he just so happens to also be a clairvoyant, or so he says, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The hour-long episodes will focus on his life, as well as how he apparently is the "it" psychic for celebs in Los Angeles. We'll get to follow him through his readings, as he gets hunches and visions about the future.

Does Henry not go on dates if he knows they're doomed?

The backstory for Henry is that he's originally from a small town and is now making it in the big city. He started getting his visions after his grandmother died in 2006, and also had a near-death experience which convinced him that he needed to spread his wings in the medium world and help people out. His website says that he also shares his visions with medical professionals and in missing persons cases.

It looks like E! is banking on the medium reality TV trend, as TLC is home to Long Island Medium, and ABC Family will be premiering on August 25 Monica the Medium—a reality TV show about a college student who talks to dead people. It's not clear if Henry can talk to ghosts, but we're crossing our fingers that he does.
