Ghost Whisperer premiered on CBS on September 23, 2005. Ever since she was a young girl, Melinda Gordon has been able to see and talk to dead people - earth bound spirits who have yet to cross over to the other side and who seek her help in communicating and resolving unfinished business with the living. Melinda sometimes has a hard time accepting her "gift," especially now that she's a newlywed and looking forward to starting her new life with her husband, Jim Clancy, a paramedic. Her friend and business partner in the antique store, Andrea Moreno, is fascinated by Melinda's talent. Although Melinda embraces her unique "abilities" as a blessing and sometimes a curse, she always helps her clients - alive or dead - find emotional closure.
