SyFy is getting together with James Lassiter, Will Smith and Ken Stovitz for a 2-hour fantasy horror pilot entitled Unfinished Business, which they're hoping to extend into a full new TV series. I hear dead people...
Unfinished Business is the story of an ex-police man, who after a brain injury, finds himself experiencing flashes of memories from the dead. Contact with the other side drives him to help lost souls resolve their unfinished business back on Earth.
Mark Stern at Universal told SFcrowsnest that they are, "excited to begin development on Unfinished Business with Overbrook Entertainment and Will Smith. It is a compelling and thrilling drama that is perfect for our audience."
Mikael Salomon (aka Band of Brothers, The Andromeda Strain, The Company) is attached to direct. Both Robinson and Salomon will serve as executive producers. Heather Courtney, head of Overbrook Entertainment television, will oversee production. Written by Sally Robinson of Iron Jawed Angels fame, the pilot will be produced by Universal.
