This summer I was invited to the set of a new Nickelodeon TV show called The Haunted Hathaways. On a very hot weekday I schlepped from the valley to Paramount Studios where I sat down with veteran actor Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters, Hand that Rocks the Cradle, Miss Congeniality, The Crow, etc.) to discuss the new series and his time on set as a guess star.

Below is my interview as well as a bit more on the show.

Nickelodeon's newest series, The Haunted Hathaways follows the adventures of a not-so-typical blended family. When Michelle Hathaway (Ginifer King) relocates to New Orleans, LA., to open a bakery with her daughters Taylor (Amber Montana) and Frankie (Breanna Yde), they quickly learn that life in the "Big Easy" is very different. Unbeknownst to them, their new home is already occupied by a ghost family comprised of jazz musician father Ray Preston (Chico Benymon), and his sons Miles (Curtis Harris) and Louie (Benjamin "Lil P-Nut" Flores Jr.).  After agreeing to live under one roof, they come to care about and rely on one another while driving each other crazy -- just like any normal family would. Though leery at first, the Hathaways soon discover how much fun life can be when living with ghosts.

The Haunted Hathaways can be seen on Nickelodeon. Check your local listings for show times.
