Your TV schedule is already probably pretty full right now, but can you squeeze in one more? ABC Family is launching a brand new, unscripted television program about a girl named Monica. She’s just your regular college junior, except for the fact that she’s a medium and can talk to the dead. Monica, you’ve got our attention.

In the just released trailer for the new series, Monica the Medium, Monica explains that she’s a regular girl, trying to find a guy who doesn’t “drive her insane.” And as we immediately learn, that proves difficult as one guy backs out of a date, because he learned she’s a medium. Monica, you can come hang out with us anytime, seeing as how we’ve already penciled your TV show into our viewing schedule.

As Monica writes on her Facebook page, she uses the “gift of communicating with those who have crossed over to the Other Side” and we see that in the trailer, too. She’s able to relay messages from those who have passed on to loved ones still here, so prepare for there to be lots of emotions in Monica the Medium. But unlike other medium shows (and there are a few), our girl Monica is hosting medium sessions in between learning to play flip cup and taking college classes.

In fact, after a little deep-diving, we found out she’s a 21-year-old Penn State junior, who says she’s always been intuitive ever since she was a kid. When news got out that she was moonlighting as a medium while working toward her degree, she was approached by THREE different production companies in one week. Obviously, we’re not the only ones who think this show’s concept is pretty fascinating.

Check out the newly released quick trailer below, and clear your schedule for August 25 at 8 p.m. That’s when we finally get to meet Monica ourselves.
