“The Haunting of Beekman Farm,” airing on Wednesday, July 14 at 9PM ET, Josh cannot help but examine their relationship as Brent pours his attention into the business. A trip together to the city for a black tie Martha Stewart event does nothing to calm Josh’s nerves, but his concerns are soon overshadowed by his fear of all things supernatural when Brent decides to hire a ghost hunter to investigate their 200-year-old estate. When the results of the hunt come in, the boys realize the biggest thing to fear may just be that they aren’t the only ones living at the Beekman after all.
The Fabulous Beekman Boys is a witty and irreverent take on what happens when you take two city slickers – Dr. Brent Ridge, a former Martha Stewart Executive and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, a New York Times bestselling author – out of their element and up to the country to revive a full-fledged farm and eco-conscious lifestyle company in upstate New York.
