AMC Gets Into 'Line of Sight'

Project is the cabler's first exploration of the sci-fi genre

AMC has ordered a pilot for scripted drama “Line of Sight.”

Project hails from Blake Masters (“Brotherhood,” “Law & Order: LA”) and is a co-production of Fox TV Studios and AMC Studios.

Sci-fi drama centers on Lewis Bernt, an investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board who survives a mysterious plane crash. Bernt then sets out to discover the accident’s cause.

Project is AMC’s first foray in the sci-fi genre.

“Blake Masters has created a world and set of characters that defies the traditional boundaries of drama and sci-fi. It’s got great elements of both genres while also having that unique blend of a conspiracy thriller. It is genuinely unexpected and unconventional,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s exec veep of original programming, production and digital content. “It is also great to be working with our incredible partners at FTVS again.”
