     October 3, 2012


Recently, M. Night Shyamalan landed a put-pilot series at SyFy and now it looks as if he’s doubled up with some network television support.  NBC has reportedly agreed to another put-pilot drama series from Shyamalan and writer John Glenn (Eagle Eye).  The series, titled Lost Horizondraws inspiration from Herman Melville’s classic whale tale, Moby Dick (which seems to be a popular source lately). The premise of the series is under wraps, but Deadline reports that it centers on a small East Coast fishing village and deals with themes of obsession and the unknown.  Shyamalan is attached to direct the potential pilot, which will be written by Glenn.
