Regular viewers of Syfy may have noticed the network drowning in episodes of "Ghost Hunters" and its various (and seemingly endless) spinoffs. But now the network has a new supernatural series in development that's not part of their so-called reality programming.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Syfy is developing a potential weekly series based on "Ghost Projekt," the Oni Press comic book series created by Joe Harris and artist Steve Rolston. The original comic followed U.S. Weapons Inspector Will Haley and Russian agent Anya Romanova as they investigated a ransacked Soviet research facility that contained a supernatural weapon of mass destruction capable of unleashing an army of ghosts.

Brett Matthews ("Supernatural") is tapped to write the pilot and executive produce alongside Andy Bourne and Eric Gitter.

Syfy also has two other potential dramas currently in development. The first is "Seeing Things," which follows a cop who dies a violent death before returning as a ghost who only a socially awkward man can see. David Slack ("Person of  Interest") and Gabrielle Stanton are writing the script, with Slack slated to executive produce the potential series alongside Robert Cort and Scott Rosenberg.

The remaining project in development is currently untitled, but it takes place in "a postwar era in which a newly formed Unity Democracy orders a volatile mix of humans and trans-humans to lead the Starship Defender on an expedition in search of lost worlds requiring law and order." If that sounds familiar to "Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda," it could be because Robert Hewitt Wolfe was instrumental in developing that series in addition to creating this new project. More recently, Wolfe has been writing and co-executive producing "Alphas" on Syfy.
