M. Night Shyamalan doc A HOAX
May 27th, 2004
The Sci Fi Channel is airing a "documentary" on "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs" director M. Night Shyamalan titled, "The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan". Episodes will air simultaneous to the release of Shyamalan's new feature "The Village" this coming summer. Nathanial Kahn ("My Architect") directed the series and is credited with writing as well, though according to sources close to Callum Greene (credited producer) the project was actually written and executive produced by Shyamalan himself! The REAL "Buried Secret" is this: The "documentary" is a FICTIONAL piece in the spirit of "The Blair Witch Project" that emulates the suspense/thriller aspects of "The Village". It will be presented as a factual documentary highlighting the making of "The Village", as well as the achievements and background of its subject, M. Night Shyamalan.
