Kevin Smith is set to direct The CW dramedy pilot, Reaper.

The show is about Sam Oliver, a 21-year-old slacker who learns that at birth his parents sold his soul to the devil and now has to pay the debt by becoming the Satan's bounty hunter, retrieving souls escaped from hell, says Productions Weekly.

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters wrote Reaper; shooting will begin March 12th for two weeks in Vancouver.
