Supernatural writer Brett Matthews is on board to pen a script for the project and serve as its executive producer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ghost Projekt will be based on the Oni Press comic book of the same name, which has seen five issues since its debut in 2010. It was created by Joe Harris and Steve Rolston.
The storyline follows American weapons inspector Will Haley and KGB agent Anya Romanova as they track down a very dangerous stolen weapon. Eric Gitter and Andy Bourne have also been hired as producers for the television adaptation.
SyFy and Oni Press are currently in talks over a television miniseries based on the publisher's comic The Sixth Gun. The venture was announced at last summer's Comic-Con International.
The network has also announced two other new shows, Seeing Things and an unnamed Robert H Wolfe drama.
