Given the success of 2003's Taken (not only was the series popular with audiences, but it also won the Emmy for outstanding miniseries), it's not exactly a surprise that Steven Spielberg and The Sci-Fi Channel have found another project on which to collaborate. This year's offering is a 12-episode miniseries called Nine Lives, and it sounds extremely disturbing. In the series, grieving people who have lost loved ones apparently pursue "near-death experiences" in a quest to be reunited with the dead, if only briefly. (And I just got chills typing that.) Wow, is that a creepy idea.

Spielberg will serve as executive producer, alongside series writer Les Bohem, who also penned Taken. No information is available yet on when the series will air, but since it's only just begun production, we probably shouldn't expect it to show up before the summer.
