Tim Rozon (Doc Holliday) is Nick Roman in THE SURREALTOR. Nick owns the Roman Agency, a realty company specializing in “metaphysically encased” properties. The Agency employs a research scientist (Father Phil Orley, played by Adam Korson), and a tech specialist (August Ripley, played by Maurice Dean Wint), who makes ghost detectors and other devices that are sometimes successful at ending hauntings. (Wint is also Marcie Diggs’ father in the CBC series DIGGSTOWN.) The main supposition seems to be that ghosts are part of the natural world and are subject to its rules. The Agency’s office manager is Zooey L’Enfant (Savannah Basley). Susan Ireland (Sarah Levy) is a realtor who does not believe in ghosts, and one of the first houses the Roman Agency will deal with is a lakeside property belonging to Megan Donovan (Tennille Read), a med student who inherited it from her grandfather.
