His movie career pretty much in the tank, M. Night Shyamalan will soon try his mysterious hand at television.

Syfy has ordered a pilot from The Sixth Sense director, as The Hollywood Reporter states Proof will mark Shyamalan's first venture on the small screen.

Co-produced by Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), the drama will focus on the son of a billionaire tech genius. After his parents pass away, the offspring offers a huge reward to anyone who can prove there's life after death.

Sounds interesting. Let's just hope it's more The Village and less The Last Airbender.
