TV: NBC Interested in Tamer Version of Spielberg Produced ‘Nine Lives’…

I’m not exactly sure how horror-themed this actually is, and the fact that NBC is involved means it’s got to be pretty tame, but it’s still a badass idea — and Steven Spielberg is involved. “Nine Lives”, written by Les Bohem, 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. Four years ago, Syfy (then Sci Fi Channel) announced a greenlight for “Nine Lives” as a 12-hour miniseries to air in 2007. 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. It’ll e fun to see how this develops. “Lost” is nearly done, I need something new to obsess over.
