‘Walking Dead’s’ David Morrissey to Star in AMC Pilot ‘Line of Sight’

Pilot hails from 'Brotherhood's' Blake Masters

The Governor from “Walking Dead” just landed a new gig.

David Morrissey has been cast as the lead in AMC’s drama “Line of Sight,” which the network ordered a pilot for in April. Project, from Blake Masters, centers on Lewis Brent (Morrissey), a National Transportation Safety Board investigator who survives a mysterious plane crash. Kai Lennox was also recently cast in the pilot.

“We are huge fans of David Morrissey and are glad he’ll be doing double duty for AMC viewers through his work on ‘The Walking Dead’ and our pilot for ‘Line of Sight,’ both of which are produced in Atlanta,” the network told Variety.

AMC did not have comment regarding how Morrissey’s casting in the “Line of Sight” pilot could affect his storyline on “The Walking Dead.”

“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC’s lineup for its fourth season on Oct. 13.
