  1. Oh the magic of lightning …. GRAVE SIGHT

    CBS has picked up TV rights to the Charlaine Harris (True Blood) GRAVE SIGHT series, for Kam Miller to adapt for network. Series, which centers on a woman who’s struck by lightning – and suddenly able to see the last moments of the dead, will see Harris and Miller exec produce alongside Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Naren Shankar and David Zucker.

    Um, that’s basically the same premise of the Will Smith Produced SyFy series called “Unfinished Business…” Nice … I love how you get Ridley Scott and the True Blood Author together and it doesn’t matter what the idea is … it’s a great idea … but it could have been a talking mule series and CBS would have bought it …

    I wonder who is going to getting to air first? “Unfinished Business” or “Grave Sight” …
