The nation’s first live exorcism will be aired on television later this year.

Exorcism: Live! will air October 30 on Destination America, reports Deadline. The cast of DA’s Ghost Asylum, along with medium Chip Coffey, will perform an exorcism on the original St. Louis house featured in William Friedkin’s 1973 film The Exorcist.

The crew will reportedly undertake daytime and nighttime investigations to “rid the lurking spirits and demons that inhabit” the iconic home.

The Exorcist House was the site of exorcisms performed on Roland Doe in 1949.

“As we step into one of the most haunted and well-known spirit destinations in America, Exorcism: Live! will show exactly what is inside this infamous, highly dangerous and possessed home,” Destination America general manager Marc Etkind said in a statement. “By actually exorcising this iconic house live, Destination America will do what it does best bringing never before seen experience to television.”

News of the program was announced at Thursday’s Television Critics Association press tour.
