Steven Spielberg's "Nine Lives" may find a second life at NBC.Four years ago, Syfy (then Sci Fi Channel) announced a greenlight for "Nine Lives" as a 12-hour miniseries to air in 2007.
The project, with Spielberg on board as an executive producer, 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.
"Nine Lives" ultimately didn't go at Syfy, but it has sparked interest at sibling NBC. Writer Les Bohem is reworking his script for a broader broadcast audience. NBC won't make any decision until reading the latest draft, but it's eyeing "Nine Lives" as a direct-to-series vehicle as part of a new strategy to do more event-type drama projects.
