Sci-Fi Channel recently announced that they were developing a TV movie with Will Smith's production company called Unfinished Business, in which a cop with a brain injury starts hearing the voices of the recently deceased, who ask him to finish their, uh, "business." The movie will be a back-door pilot, meaning that Sci-Fi has the option to turn it into a regular television series, but we can't think of a more boring, oft-used plot device. Haven't these people watched Ghost Whisperer? Medium? Raines? (Okay, that last one is unfair -- nobody watched it.) Anyway, we'd much rather see a series based on one of Will Smith's numerous movies, most of which were blockbusters at the box office, and would likely deliver smash ratings on TV. Here's a few that we think would make for interesting television.
I have to hand it to Sci Fi's Scare Tactics for having industrious P.A.s willing to scour this fine nation of ours to find the dumbest and most gullible people ever to serve as the unwitting victims of their creepy practical jokes. Perhaps they merely felt that they had to up their game this season now that Shannen Doherty's not around to unintentionally instill the fear of god in everyone who appears on the show? No matter. For those of you who don't know the premise, Scare Tactics is like a really, really twisted version of Candid Camera. Or, you know, Punk'd, but with vampires instead of B-list celebrities. In a recent episode which came to our attention courtesy of the good people at Best Week Ever, a (retarded?) new hire at a spa comes upon what appears to be a Satanic bloodletting ceremony that's been ordered up for a client who insists on looking younger. I don't know about y'all but if I walked in on something like that, I would probably a) pee my pants and b) start laughing uncontrollably. Real talk? That blood is faker than a bucket full of ketchup, people! The scene manages to be sordid as hell and completely hysterical at the same time. Bonus points for a cameo from a pair of fake boobies. Peep it/them after the jump.
