Countless businesses have been launched by teens and college students in recent years. But Brynne Larson, 18, and sisters, Tess and Savannah Scherkenback, 18 and 21 respectively, may be the first group of young coeds-turned-entrepreneurs to enter this field: Exorcism.

On Thursday evening, the BBC will premiere the documentary, "Teen Exorcists," featuring three young women, Arizona natives and current college students who reportedly became pals while learning karate eight years ago. The BBC documentary will show the three young women doing their work -- performing public exorcisms; according to a separate report by the BBC, the women -- who consider themselves "freedom fighters" for their work of casting out "demons" -- decided to set up shop in the United Kingdom because they believe it's a "hotbed for witchcraft" after the popularity of J K Rowling's Harry Potter books.

"The spells and things that you're reading in the Harry Potter books, those aren't just something that are made up, those are actual spells. Those are things that came from witchcraft books," Tess Scherkenback told the BBC. The three are paid for their services; they ask for a voluntary payment of a couple of hundred dollars for a one-on-one exorcism.
