Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd will produce Horizon created by Bridget Tyler
The show follows a woman who, after she learns that her husband has been killed by an alien in the South Pacific during World War II, becomes the only person who can stop the invasion of Earth.
Tyler wrote the pilot and also co-executive produces the project which, according to Variety, landed at USA after vice president Alex Sepiol read the script, and recommended it to Bill McGoldrick, USA's vice president of original scripted programming.
McGoldrick said that casting wouldn't start immediately and that they "had been talking about getting into genre and period pieces again. We had never found one that never spoke to us in either category. The idea that we now have a combination in one project was sort of everything we were looking for."
