Eight years after the debut of its last sci-fi show, miniseries-turned-series The 4400, USA Network is re-entering the genre space with Horizon, a drama pilot from The Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd.

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. Bridget Tyler (Burn Notice) wrote the script and will co-executive produce for Universal Cable Prods. and Hurd’s Valhalla Entertainment, which has a deal at the studio.

Jeff Wachtel & Chris McCumber said:
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.

That's a shame. I like the alternate-history period works, in particular alternate WWII stuff, and this is something I would've watched.
