Ghosts, a new CBS sitcom, is based on the same-named British show. Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar star as Sam and Jay Arondekar, a married couple from New York who think their dreams have come true when they inherit a beautiful country home from a relative. They quickly discover that the house is not only in desperate need of repair, but also that it is haunted by a number of spirits.

The ghosts are people who died on the grounds and are trapped inside the house until they can leave. Sam ends up in a coma after falling down the stairs, and when she wakes up, she can see and hear the spirits, whereas her husband Jay cannot. The fact that only one of them has the ability to communicate with the spirits adds to the comedy of the sitcom.
