Network Admits Lying About Filmmaker Bio
NEW YORK (AP) - The Sci Fi Channel admitted Friday that it lied last month in claiming it was at odds with filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan and was making an unauthorized biography about his ``buried secret.''
Sci Fi said last month,that Shyamalan had soured on the documentary when the questions got too personal. Documentarians Nathaniel Kahn and Callum Greene pressed on and made a three-hour film, ``The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan,'' without his cooperation, the network said.
It was all a lie, and there is no buried secret, Hammer said Friday.
The documentary, scheduled to air Sunday, says a mysterious drowning of a child in a lake near Shyamalan's boyhood home in the Philadelphia area had profoundly affected his life and fueled his interest in the supernatural. That's not true either
Sci Fi, which is available in some 83 million homes, has recently been taken over by corporate parent NBC Universal.
