Crumbling country mansion Button House is home to restless spirits who have died there over the centuries. Each a product of their time, they’re thrown together for eternity, resigned to squabble over mundane daily gripes. But their lives – or rather afterlives – are thrown into turmoil when a young urban couple, Alison and Mike, unexpectedly inherit the peaceful derelict house and plan to turn it into a bustling hotel. As the ghosts attempt to oust the newcomers, and Alison and Mike discover the true scale of the project they’ve taken on, fate conspires to trap both sides in an impossible house share. Cue all kinds of comedy chaos, with every day truly a matter of life and death.

Premieres on Thursday, Nov. 16 (two back-to-back episodes from 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+. (The series originally aired on BBC One in the U.K.)
