'Walking Dead' producer plots alien invasion
USA network heads in new, gritty direction with sci-fi period piece
The characters-welcoming network has announced that Hurd will be the executive producer on a new sci-fi series called "Horizon." The WWII-set drama will center on an as-yet-uncast FBI secretary who believes her husband was killed while warring with a spaceship and sets out to prove the truth and prevent, not to mention an all-out interplanetary invasion. Man, Carrie Matheson thought she had an uphill battle.
