The USA Network announced today that it will start production on “Horizon,” a period genre project from executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (“The Walking Dead”), along with the limited series “Don’t Turn Around.” Read on for more!
While the original description of “Horizon” mentioned aliens, the latest info we have doesn’t include that aspect, but in any event, here are more details from USA’s most recent press release:
“HORIZON” is a period genre drama set at the height of World War II. At a time when many American women took more significant roles in the workplace than ever before, a secretary at the FBI begins a secretive investigation into files that have been stamped with the codename “Horizon.” This mysterious project provides links to the death of her husband and the disappearance of a young girl and has also – unbeknownst to her – aroused the interest of undercover Nazi spies working in the US. From Universal Cable Productions, Hurd will executive produce through her Valhalla Entertainment, with writer and co-executive producer Bridget Tyler (“BURN NOTICE”). The pilot will go into production this summer.
As for “Don’t Turn Around,” here’s what we know so far:
“DON’T TURN AROUND” is a haunting limited series set on a beautiful but remote island. As the summer draws to an end and the vacationers/weekenders have all left the island, the young staff left behind is ready to finally let loose before they pack up as well. When an unexpected storm rolls across the island during the party, several people mysteriously vanish and turn up dead. Trapped on the island with no means of escape, the remaining group struggles to survive against whatever is out there… and each other. From Grady Girl Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television, “DON’T TURN AROUND” is written by J.R. Orci, who executive produces with Dawn Olmstead.
Look for more on both projects soon!
