In a first of its kind reality TV programme, children who think they have had past lives will be featured on a show called "Ghost Inside My Child."
The show is being produced by a Los Angeles production company and is scheduled to be aired on the Bio Channel later this year.
A few months ago, the pilot episode of the series was aired, where three kids were seen undergoing various steps to recover memories of their alleged past lives.
"We were pregnant at the time when the idea first came to us," producers Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina, a married couple told The Huffington Post. "We thought what would we do if this happened with our daughter? It really was a phenomenon. We wanted to tell these parents' stories without trying to prove or disprove them."
Messina said the "my kid has a past life" scenario can't help but raise questions.
"I don't know what I'd do if my daughter turned out to be Grandma Messina," he said. "What do you do? Ignore it? Explore it? Hope it goes away?"
The producers have already done other reality shows like such as "Beauty And The Geek" and "VH1 Scream Queens," but the idea of reincarnation fascinates them both.
"These kids are going through something and we're trying to figure it out," Messina said. "A kid will say something about their life and we research it to see if it pans out."
However, finding the children for casting alone is not enough. "The parents also need to be able to handle television and also, finding genuine stories after eliminating fabricated ones is a challenge," Messina said.
"We need to make sure the parents are of sound mind and can handle TV," Messina said.
About how to find legitimate cases of reincarnation, Auerbach said: "Children like these seem to exhibit adult-like behavior and use vocabulary and speech patterns beyond their years. Also, look for statements like, 'I used to be...'"
Auerbach added that parents should also watch out if their child's story is not inspired by any recent event.
"Sometimes, kids pick up things from watching TV," Auerbach said. "Also, if a child claims to be a dead grandparent, it's possible they heard people talking about the dead relative or saw pictures."
The report further said that the proposed series has awoken the interest and attention of skeptic organizations such as the James Randi Foundation, which works expose paranormal and pseudoscientific frauds in the media among other things.
