Can you hear that? The sound of “Unchained Melody” wafting gently through the air and around your extensive collection of nostalgic 90s memorabilia?  According to Deadline, Ghost, everyone’s favorite story about murder, true love and pottery sex is getting the TV adaptation treatment via writers Akiva Goldman (Fringe, The Da Vinci Code, Batman & Robin) and Jeff Pinker (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Fringe). The original movie centered upon a freshly-murdered man (Patrick Swayze) who uses a psychic (Whoopi Goldberg) to reconnect with his fiancee (Demi Moore and her terrible haircut) back on Earth. Seeing is this is a pretty self-contained story, that ends with Swayze finally leaving the Earthly world and traveling to Heaven (the spiritual plane? afterlife?) after fulfilling his duties and protecting his lady, it’s unclear what a weekly TV series would entail.
