Gale Anne Hurd, producer of AMC's hit show The Walking Dead, has teamed with Burn Notice's Bridget Tyler for a new project at USA. THR reports that the duo are working on a female-driven World War II sci-fi pilot called Horizon. The drama "revolves around 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."
This will be the first science fiction show on the network since The 4400 in 2007. Here is what USA's Bill McGoldrick had to say about the project:
"We've been actively looking in two areas for a while: genre and period and we got this great script that combines them both. It's playing in two worlds that we really like and we're able to do it in one project with Gale Anne Hurd, who is the hot TV name right now. We found this great voice in Bridget, which Gale has cultivated really well."
