Penn State Medium To Star In ABC Family Reality Show

Penn State’s resident medium, Monica Ten-Kate, is set to take her abilities to TV. Ten-Kate will star in “Monica the Medium” on ABC Family, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The unscripted reality series will follow Ten-Kate as she carries out her daily life as a communications major while juggling her side job as a spirit medium, someone who is able to communicate with those “who have crossed over.”

“The best part of being a medium is the gift I get to give people that I read,” Ten-Kate said in an interview with Onward State last fall. “Just being able to see their face change from sadness to tears of joy from hearing from their loved ones is probably one of the best feelings I could ever have.”

Much like “Long Island Medium” Theresa Caputo, Ten-Kate “uses her gifts to connect with your loved ones and deliver healing messages from them,” according to her website. Ten-Kate offers in-person readings as well as readings over Skype. However, in recent months, she has received so many reading requests that she has had to stop scheduling reading sessions entirely until further notice.

The television series will take place right here in State College, and according to Variety, the series has already begun production and is set to premiere on ABC Family sometime this summer.
