Their first collaboration is a TV movie called Unfinished Business, and focuses in on a cop who can see the memories of the deceased. It will air as a two-hour movie, and it could lead to an ongoing series.

Smith's company Overbrook Entertainment is producing the feature, and Mikael Salomon from the fantastic Band of Brothers will be directing.

Oh, and if you're wondering when the name change for Sci Fi will be official, it's July 7th.
