A&E Network says it has ordered a documentary pilot from U.S. producer and director Doug Liman.

Liman's big-screen credits include "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and "Swingers."

His latest project, "The Unexplained," will focus on strange phenomena and paranormal experiences, it was announced Friday by Rob Sharenow, senior vice president of non-fiction and alternative programming for A&E Network and BIO Channel.

"'The Unexplained,' Liman's first foray into non-scripted television, uses his world-renowned storytelling and film-making expertise to deliver real-life stories that take audiences to places they have never been before: investigating, questioning, experiencing and chasing down answers to the most bizarre stories and strangest paranormal occurrences," A&E said on its Web site.

"Possible topics for the series are past-life regressions, real-life hauntings, near-death and out-of-body experiences and other chilling personal encounters. These are first-person emotional stories of life, death and the possible in-between that have never been told."
