In addition to the news that USA had greenlit two new comedy series and put one pilot into development, the cable channel announced that they're developing a number of new dramas, which could eventually join the likes of White Collar, Royal Pains, Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, Necessary Roughness and newcomer Graceland at the network.
USA officially announced that they're starting production on Horizon, a period drama from The Walking Dead's Gale Anne Hurd. The project is set at the height of World War II, when women had entered the workforce. A secretary at the FBI starts a secretive investigation into files that have been stamped with the codename "horizon." She discovers that the secret project has something to do with the death of her husband and the disappearance of a young girl. What she doesn't know is that it has aroused the interest of undercover Nazi spies working in the U.S. Sounds like it could make for an interesting series, though the period element is a step away from what we've seen on USA among their dramas in recent years.
Here's what USA has on the drama slate, which includes a project from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, and one executive produced by John Legend.
That's quite a diverse collection of programming in the works at the network. From arranged marriages to medical dramas, law enforcement and legal stories and even a restaurant-set drama with an excellent title ("Hungry"? Love it), it looks like USA really is looking to branch out, not only by adding comedies to their line-up, but by developing dramas that appeal to different audiences and explore different topics and even time periods.
