Steven Spielberg's proposed supernatural miniseries Nine Lives, which was original developed for Syfy, is now being rewritten for NBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Executive producer Les Bohem, who previously partnered with Spielberg for Syfy's Taken miniseries, is reportedly reworking the script to appeal to a broader audience.

The 12-hour miniseries was originally slated to air on Syfy in 2007.

[It] revolves around a group of people who find a way to reunite with their loved ones in the afterlife through near-death experiences, but those journeys unleash an evil force. ...

Bohem is reworking the script for a broader broadcast audience. NBC won't make any decision until reading the latest draft, but it's eyeing "Nine Lives" as a direct-to-series vehicle.
