USA Network Picks Up World War II Alien Show Horizon

Nix December 6, 2012

From the network that gave you “The 4400″. (Which I’ve never seen.)

Cable net USA Network has picked up a new sci-fi drama set during World War II called “Horizon” from producer Gale Anne Hurd, one of the producers on AMC’s “The Walking Dead”, and a longtime vet of the genre, with her producing fingers in the likes of “Aliens”, “The Abyss” and the “Terminator” films, among many.

“Horizon” is from writer Bridget Tyler:

Set during the height of World War II, Horizon centers on a secretary at the FBI who discovers that her husband might have been killed in a battle with a spaceship in the South Pacific. Obsessed with learning the truth, she becomes the only person standing between Earth and an alien invasion.

Well, that’s going to be expensive. Especially for a cable network. I wonder why they don’t just make it present-day?

“Horizon” is currently casting.
