USA orders a World War 2 alien drama from Walking Dead producer

Get ready for Hitler and aliens: The TV show! Walking Dead producer and genre legend Gale Anne Hurd is moving forward with a new scifi series for USA titled Horizon. THR is reporting that the series is centered around an alien fight some enchanted evening in the South Pacific:

"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."

The show will be written and co-produced by Bridget Tyler, who has worked on Burn Notice. Deadline has USA co-president Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber quoted saying that, "Horizon is our first genre piece since The 4400 and the first-ever period drama for the network...This signals the next step in the evolution of our programming brand." Does that mean more sci-\fi? We certainly hope so.
