"In his first foray into network television, 'The Sixth Sense' writer/director M. Night Shyamalan has teamed with 'Eagle Eye' writer John Glenn for a drama project, which landed at NBC with a put pilot commitment," reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The story continues, "Titled 'Lost Horizon,' the project hails from Sony Pictures TV and Shyamalan’s Blinding Edge Pictures."
Andreeva adds, "The premise is being kept under wraps but I hear 'Lost Horizon' revolves around a small fishing village on the East Coast. It is being described as a modern-day Moby Dick, dealing with obsession and the unknown, themes that are often reflected in Shyamalan’s movies."
Shyamalan also has a previously reported put pilot deal with the SyFy channel, which is owned by NBCUniversal.
