Walking Dead network buys new UFO show from BSG’s David Eick

Not content to swallow up genre viewers with zombies, AMC is moving into alien territory, buying the UFO-centric Thunderstruck, with one of Battlestar Galactica’s masterminds on board.

Along with Eick, Thunderstruck will be executive produced by Paul Boardman and Scott Derrickson (who wrote and directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose), and according to Deadline, the show will follow:

“Powerful and enigmatic entities that begin appearing all over the world. After one shows up in the town of Great Falls, Montana, the local citizens must grapple with the dramatic effects and growing mystery of repeated visitations.”

AMC’s development process is a little kooky—they hold a “bake-off” with a number of different projects they’ve already bought and choose the few they want to actually put on the air—so there’s no telling if or when this’ll be on the air.

Luckily for Eick, he’s still got the Hulk pilot he’s co-writing for Marvel, ABC and Guillermo del Toro to keep him busy in the interim.
