M. Night Shyamalan has gotten into the scripted TV business.
The writer-director behind “The Sixth Sense,” “Unbreakable,” “Signs,” “The Village,” “Lady in the Water,” “The Happening” and “The Last Airbender” will make his TV directorial debut for a Syfy pilot titled “Proof.”
The Hollywood Reporter has the premise:
Proof centers on the son of a billionaire tech genius who, following an accident that claims his parents' lives, offers a large reward for anyone who can find proof of life after death.
Could someone get rich just by showing the billionaire a stack of Syfy’s “Ghost Hunters” DVDs?
Marti Noxon – who followed two years as showrunner on “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” with stints on “Point Pleasant,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice,” “Mad Men” and “Glee” – will co-write the pilot with Shyamalan.
Noxon has also recently established a movie career, having scripted the 2011 vampire remake “Fright Night” and co-scripted the 2011 extraterrestrial teen saga “I Am Number Four.”
