Famed filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan is taking his talents to TV.

The creator of such films as “The Sixth Sense” and “Signs” is getting into the television business, inking a deal with Syfy for a potential scripted series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project, dubbed “Proof,” centers around “the son of a billionaire tech genius who offers a large reward for anyone who can find proof of life after death following the tragic accident and sudden passing of his parents,” according to the report.

Shyamalan would work with “Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s” Marti Noxon on the project, which marks the first scripted TV series for the filmmaker.

On the big screen, Shyamalan wrapped up Sony picture “After Earth” with Will and Jaden Smith.
