“SCEPTICS WELCOME” SAYS ‘SEATBELT PYSCHIC’ MEDIUM THOMAS JOHN

Friday, September 7th, 2018

It may sound like strange premise for a show: unsuspecting ride-share passengers are surprised when their driver reveals himself as a medium there to give them a reading.

Whether it sounds like your idea of heaven or hell, there is an undeniable allure to the concept of a surprise psychic reading done in a cab, and in fact the show owes a lot to James Corden’s popular Carpool Karaoke – it’s produced by the same man, Zeb Newman.

The star of Seatbelt Psychic, Thomas John, agrees that the idea is a little out-there.

“I will be honest and say I thought it was totally nuts to even consider doing readings while driving people around,” he told Hollywood Reporter, “but I realised that it could be a way to reach people who would never look for something like this but needed some deep healing.”

Some passengers are more open to the idea than others, but John says he doesn’t think it’s his job to tell people what to think.

“I represent an experience, and then people can draw their own conclusions. I welcome sceptics. A sceptic is just saying, ‘I haven’t decided yet what I think, I am waiting for information.'”

Seatbelt Psychic is currently set in LA, with eight episodes to date, and airs in the UK on Lifetime. New episodes premiere Wednesdays at 10 and 10:30pm, with repeats on Saturdays at 8 and 8:30pm.
