TV Pilot Season, Big Willie Style

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.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: Everything Old is New Again

<i>The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon</i>: Everything Old is New Again

I must admit something right off the bat: I've never been the biggest fan of Jimmy Fallon as a late night talk show host. I know, I know, that's like saying puppies are overrated and ice cream is a sub-par dessert. I'm of the minority and I realize that. Let me clarify that I actually thought Fallon's Late Night was a fun, hip (The Roots rule all!!) and modern (the guy knows his viral-friendly audience) show, but Fallon's interviewing style of fawning and giggling over every single guest always hit the wrong nerve with me. Again, I realize that Fallon doesn't have the gravitas as Letterman, nor the politics of Stewart and Colbert, but I like my hosts more edgy and daring than agreeable and starstruck, and the squeaky-clean Fallon most certainly ain't that.

A movie that no one wants isn't happening. Yay, I guess.

Looks like those broke Brooklyn girls might last long enough to open their cupcake business after all.
