(CBS Local) – This week, a brand new show arrives on CBS. On Thursday, October 7, a new single-camera comedy called “Ghosts” starring Utkarsh Ambudkar and Rose McIver will premiere at 9 p.m. EST / PST on CBS. The 30-minute comedy is about Samantha and Jay, who throw away both caution and money when they decide to convert a huge dilapidated country estate they’ve inherited into a bed & breakfast. The only problem is that it is inhabited by the many spirits of deceased residents who now inhabit it.
Actor Asher Grodman plays one of the ghosts in the series named Trevor. The dead souls range from a Prohibition salon singer named Alberta to a 90s finance man in Grodman’s character Trevor. CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith chatted with Grodman about the work on the show, the acting at the moment, and working with Ambudkar.

“You can expect a lot of fun,” said Grodman. “The first time I read this script I said it was one of the funniest things I have ever read. I knew it was different and I knew it was special. We were supposed to shoot the pilot in March 2020 on a Monday and the world stopped the previous Friday. In terms of the whole, we have all lived in limbo for a year and a half and we have all become very close. We shared this trip and we all became great friends. We had a great time. “

” It’s a team sport. They rebuilt this house in Montreal and the attention to detail is incredible, ”said Grodman. “The cast is so special and it really depends on the people and the work that goes into it. The scripts are awesome and I am blown away by the talent of these people. I hope people will love the show and laugh as much as we did and get a little outing. “
