M.Night Shyamalan providing Proof to SyFy

Likely concerned his next film “After Earth” might go the way of the rest of his recent films, M.Night Shyamalan has taken out some insurance on himself – securing himself a plum television gig as a financial back-up plan.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the king-of-the-twist is doing a series called “Proof” for SyFy – the home of such greats as “Battlestar Galatica”, “Being Human” and, erm, “Piranhaconda”.

The filmmaker, who has been dog-paddling down a river of poop in recent years thanks to the less-than-stellar efforts he’s been crunching out, like “Lady in the Water” and “The Last Airbender” – will collaborate on the project with “Buffy” alum Marti Noxon.

Proof centers on the son of a billionaire tech genius who, following an accident that claims his parents’ lives, offers a large reward for anyone who can find proof of life after death.

Shyamalan and Noxon will co-write the project and serve as EPs. Ashwin Rajan, of Shyamalan’s Blinding Edge, also will serve as an exec producer.

Maybe after this, someone can convince M.Night to get going on that long-awaited “Unbreakable” sequel that he’s been teasing us with for years?
