Two friends who both happen to be named Victoria (but don't call them that!) meet at a ghost hunting convention, resulting in the finest paranormal private detective agency the world has ever known (or maybe it's just the silliest). If you're having an issue with hauntings, curses, cryptids or other paranormal phenomena, or even if you just want some spooky research done, the Private Vics of Victori Investigations should be your first stop!
