EXCLUSIVE: AMC‘s foray into sci-fi is being put on hold. The cable network has passed on drama pilot Line Of Sight, from Brotherhood creator Blake Masters. Co-produced by Fox TV Studios and AMC Studios, it centered on Lewis Bernt (David Morrissey), a National Transportation Safety Board investigator who survives a mysterious plane crash, bringing him on an emotionally disorienting quest to discover the accident’s cause. Line Of Sight, which emerged out of AMC’s 2013 annual script showcase, was the first sci-fi project to get a green light at AMC. It co-starred Sarah Clarke, Kai Lennox, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Omar Metwally, Samantha Mathis and Chinasa Ogbuagu. FtvS plans to shop the pilot elsewhere. AMC has two other pilots in the works — Knifeman, set in 18th century London, and the post-apocalyptic Galyntine — as well as straight-to series Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul and a companion Walking Dead series eyed for 2015.
