Series: Miracles
Miracles is an American 2003 show combining drama, horror, suspense, science fiction, and mystery together. It is directed by Matt Reeves, produced by David Greenwalt, and written by Michael Petroni and Richard Hatem. It stars Skeet Ulrich as Paul Callan and Angus Macfadyen as Alva Keel.

Paul Callan was once an investigator of modern miracles for the Catholic Church. However, after he kept finding mundane explanations for supposedly supernatural phenomena, he began having a crisis of faith. He ends up leaving the church when he experiences a true, supernatural miracle that saves his life...and it gets dismissed due to lack of evidence. Alva Keel comes in and recruits Callan to his Sodalitas Quaerito (Latin for "Seek Association") organization. This organization specializes in investigating and cataloguing "unexplainable" phenomena. Joined by their colleague and former police officer Evelyn Santos (Marisa Ramirez), they are trying to stop impending "darkness" before it's too late.

This show lasted for only one season with 13 episodes from January 27, 2003 to December 26, 2003 before it was cancelled.
