Though he’s in post-production with his latest film ‘After Earth,’ M. Night Shyamalan isn’t missing a beat and has a show called ‘Proof’ headed to the Syfy channel. The game plan is that he’ll co-write and direct the pilot, and serve as executive producer.

This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, who say that Syfy has picked up the show, and that Marti Noxon is also attached as a producer. Noxon had a couple of her scripts produced last year, including ‘I Am Number Four’ and the ‘Fright Night’ remake, but we won’t hold that against her. THR tells us that the show centers on the son of a billionaire tech genius who offers a large reward for anyone who can find proof of life after death following the tragic accident and sudden passing of his parents.”

In generations past, a A-list director moving to television might have been considered a step down, but most big directors either started in TV (like Steven Spielberg) or have been involved with network shows (James Cameron had ‘Dark Angel,’ Sam Raimi had ‘Hercules’ and ‘Xena,’ Spielberg had ‘Amazing Stories’ and ‘Seaquest DSV’ etc. etc.). With Shyamalan’s involvement, the first thing our minds go to is: will there be a big reveal at the end? We’ll know for sure when the show hits the air.
