Seeing Things (TV series)

Seeing Things was a Canadian comedy-drama mystery television series which originally aired on CBC Television from 1981 to 1987. It was also seen in Europe, South Africa, Singapore, Australia and the United States. In all, 43 episodes were produced. With the exception of "Seeing R.E.D." (90 minutes) episodes were one hour long. The show starred Louis Del Grande as Louis Ciccone, a newspaper journalist who solves murders with the help of his ability to see postcognitive visions. Unfortunately, Louis cannot consciously control this sense except by investigating the clues the initial vision gives. In some episodes, however, such as "Seeing The Country", he is able to stop visions from entering his mind. Nevertheless, only when he discovers new information on the case will further visions occur, which provide increasingly more detail until they finally reveal the murderer.

At the time, Seeing Things was something of a hit, and guest-starred several Canadian celebrities, such as Ronnie Hawkins. Another notable appearance is by Mark McKinney of The Kids in the Hall, who played a character working in a morgue in the episode "Different Point of View". The show won several awards in Canada. In 1983, Louis Del Grande won an ACTRA award for Best Actor in a Television Drama, and Sheldon Chad won an ACTRA award for Best Writer Television Drama for the episode, "Seeing Double."

The show also starred Del Grande's real-life wife, Martha Gibson, as Ciccone's wife Marge, and Janet-Laine Green as crown attorney Heather Redfern.

Del Grande was also the show's creator and writer.
