SCI FI Channel in Business with Will Smith


The SCI FI Channel is teaming with Will Smith for a new crime procedural, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The network has ordered “Unfinished Business,” a drama about an ex-cop who starts seeing flashes of memories from the recently deceased. The visions compel him to help wronged souls resolve their unfinished business.

The network plans to air “Business” as a two-hour movie that will also serve as a potential series pilot.

“Business” is being produced through Overbrook Entertainment, with Smith, James Lassiter and Ken Stovitz executive producing. Emmy-nominated scribe Sally Robinson (“Iron Jawed Angels”) will write the pilot, and Emmy winner Mikael Salomon (“Band of Brothers”) is attached to direct. Both also will serve as executive producers.
