“Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead” demonstrates Williams’ abilities to see and speak with the dead and in some cases transform the lives of the people she meets who are seeking to connect with their dearly departed.

In each episode, cameras follow a typical day in the life of the young clairvoyant. When Williams removes her hat, revealing her signature multi-colored spiky hair, it is her way of showing the spirit world she is available for contact. Lisa gives readings in her office to scheduled clients and oftentimes to people she randomly meets while walking the streets of Los Angeles and New York. In these meetings, Lisa relays messages that she believes are from the dead to their relatives and friends.
