M. Night Shyamalan is coming to the small screen. The Chester County filmmaker, who shot to fame with The Sixth Sense will be making his first scripted TV series for Syfy.

Proof is the story of a tech billionaire’s son, who after his parents tragically die, offers a huge sum of money to anyone who can truly establish that there is life after death.

Shyamalan will write and executive produce the series with TV veteran Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). He will also direct – at least the pilot. Shyamalan, who turns 42 this week, recently completed work on a film After Earth with Will Smith and his son Jaden.

He has some history with Syfy. Back in 2004, when it was still known as the Sci Fi Channel, the outlet presented a special The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan that was little more than a transparent plug for his movie The Village.
