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.
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.
