The man who made last-second twists in movies a cliche is popping his TV cherry. M. Night Shyamalan will team with former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” writer Marti Noxon on a new TV series called “Proof”, about “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.”
That kinda sounds like a horror/supernatural TV show, which would seem to fit both Shyamalan and Nixon’s CV.
In case you forgot, Shyamalan has worked with Syfy before. Back when they were called the Sci Fi Channel, Syfy produced a faux documentary called “The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan” that was basically a bad attempt at “viral” marketing for Shyamalan’s “The Village”, which opened in the same year.
Shyamalan and Noxon will co-write the pilot episode and stay on to produce. “Proof” already has a put-pilot commitment from Syfy, so it’s definitely happening.
M. Night Shyamalan also has the sci-fi actioner “After Earth” with the Smiths on tap. Meanwhile, if you enjoyed Shyamalan’s live-action “The Last Airbender” movie and is still hoping for a sequel, you’re going to have to keep waiting, because there is no sign anyone wants to make that yet.
