NBC Interested in Spielberg’s Nine Lives

ON

NBC is interested in taking on Steven Spielberg’s “Nine Lives,” which four years ago was picked up by Syfy (then the SCI FI Channel) as a 12-hour miniseries but never went ahead.

The project, written by Les Bohem, revolves around a group of people who find a way to reunite with their loved ones in the afterlife through near-death experiences, but those journeys unleash an evil force.

Bohem is reworking the script for a broader broadcast audience. If it moves ahead, NBC is eyeing the property as a direct-to-series vehicle.
