New life for Spielberg on SciFi

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 13th 2006 1:37PM
Steven Spielberg is once again bringing original programming to the Sci Fi Channel. This time, it's a 12-hour miniseries called Nine Lives. The drama features nine characters who are mourning loved ones, and discover they can reunite with the dead through near-death experiences. Sounds pretty freaky, eh? Sci Fi's deal with Spielberg follows the wildly successful collaboration that spawned the series, Taken, in 2003. Les Bohem, the guy who wrote the Taken series, will also write Nine Lives.

Also picked up by SciFi:

  • Who wants to be a Superhero?, a reality series that follows Stan Lee as he puts contestants through challenges to help them find their super strength;
  • Medium at Large, a reality series that features psychic Char Margolis;
  • The Gift, reality series that follows people in boot camp for intuitives;
  • The Bridge, a comedy-drama about a group of cynical souls trapped in purgatory and the good deeds they must do to get out.

Thought A: So Spielberg is remaking 'Flatliners.'
Thought 2: 'Steven Spielberg Presents Taken' instantly caused a total loss of faith in the man.

Taken was TERRIBLE!

It was nothing but a huge build up to a letdown.

"anti-climatic" would best describe it.
