The Sci Fi Channel has picked up a crime drama from Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment. “Unfinished Business,” produced by Overbrook, with Smith, James Lassiter and Ken Stovitz sharing executive producer duties, follows an ex-cop who starts seeing flashes of memories from the recently deceased. The visions compel him to help wronged souls resolve their unfinished business (HollywoodReporter.com).

As with most of it recent shows, the cable network will air “Business” as a 2-hour movie that will serve as the pilot for an ongoing series if ratings are good.

“Sci Fi is excited to begin development on ‘Unfinished Business‘ with Overbrook Entertainment and Will Smith. It is a compelling and thrilling drama that is perfect for our audience,” said Sci Fi’s executive VP of original programming, Mark Stern.

The network’s last attempt at a crime drama didn’t go too well, with 2007′s “The Dresden Files” lasting only one season.
