SCI FI announced that it is teaming up with James Lassiter, Will Smith and Ken Stovitz through their company Overbrook Entertainment for a two-hour back door pilot entitled Unfinished Business.

Written by Emmy-nominated Sally Robinson (Iron Jawed Angels), Unfinished Business is the story of an ex-cop, who, after a brain injury, finds himself experiencing flashes of memories from the recently deceased. The experiences compel him to help these lost souls resolve their unfinished business.

The pilot will be produced by Universal Cable Productions. Emmy-winner Mikael Salomon (The Andromeda Strain) is attached to direct. Both Robinson and Salomon will serve as executive producers. Heather Courtney, head of Overbrook Entertainment television, will oversee production.
