Will Smith producing for Sci Fi

Sci Fi ChannelTo go along with starring in summer sci-fi blockbusters, Will Smith, or rather his production company, will be producing a cop procedural drama for the Sci Fi Channel (I refuse to call them SyFy until the actual switchover occurs) called Unfinished Business. It's about a cop who gets "flashes" of memories from the recently deceased in order to help him solve their murders.

I've seen this concept before. I think it was a storyline for the pilot of Torchwood.

I'm surprised it's taken Will this long to start producing content for the genre. His breakout flick, Independence Day, was science fiction. His follow-up, Men In Black, was science fiction. In fact, every movie he's starred in that has done well at the box office was science fiction. If he decides to make a cameo appearance on this show (perhaps as a victim), it could lead to the Sci Fi Channel getting their highest ratings ever.

Funny... I was thinking it sounded a lot like "The Dead Zone". Clearly this concept has been around a time or twelve.

Its also similar to Fox's short lived Tru Calling with Eliza Dushku

Actually, it's more like the plot of Jeff Goldblum's failed series, Raines.
