David Morrissey Returning To 'The Walking Dead' & Lead For New AMC Drama
Reported by Outsiders - 10:38 AM 2013.08.28
Deadline has confirmed with AMC that The Walking Dead's David Morrissey will be the lead in the new drama pilot Line Of Sight and will return as The Governor for Season 4 of The Walking Dead.
“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 said in a statement to sources.
The Governor’s future beyond Season 4 is uncertain, and Morrissey’s casting as the lead of another AMC show will certainly fuel further speculation that The Governor may be facing his demise. AMC has a tradition of working with the same actors on multiple series. Line Of Sight, from creator Blake Masters, director Jonathan Demme, tells 'the story of Lewis Bernt (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.'
