USA Is FINALLY Making A Drama About Aliens Set During World War II

All truths will be revealed. If you Google “aliens world war 2,” the first result that comes up is a YouTube clip entitled “Hitler and the Aliens world war 2 secret history.” Awesome. The video’s description: “Hitler & alien secrets, A really interesting story,lots of these theories could have a factor on today’s ufo-dilemma,& the ufo & alien secrecy!Disclosure is ’round the corner!” THE ROUND CORNER IS NOW. USA Network, your home for quippy dramas about suits and collars and burning things, is getting into the science-FACTion game, with a period-piece drama about aliens set during World War II from The Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd.

Set during the height of World War II, Horizon centers on a secretary at the FBI who discovers that her husband might have been killed in a battle with a spaceship in the South Pacific. Obsessed with learning the truth, she becomes the only person standing between Earth and an alien invasion. Bridget Tyler (Burn Notice) wrote the script. “Horizon is our first genre piece since The 4400 and the first ever period drama for the network,” said USA Network co-presidents Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber. “This signals the next step in the evolution of our programming brand.” (Via)

“That brand,” Wachtel and McCumber somehow continued concurrently, “is all things aliens and Hitler. Hitler and Aliens Gone Surfing. Hitler and Aliens’ Peruvian Adventure. Hitler and Aliens Electric Boogajew. The Erotic Adventures of Hitler and Aliens. That one will appeal to everyone who wanted to watch Mulder and Scully F*CK. Except replace Mulder and Scully with Hitler and aliens. Also, zombies.” It’s flawless, really.
