Oscar-winning Silence Of The Lambs helmer Jonathan Demme has been tapped to direct and executive produce AMC’s drama pilot Line Of Sight. The project, from Brotherhood creator Blake Masters, marks AMC’s first foray into the sci-fi genre. Co-produced by Fox TV Studios and AMC Studios, Line Of Sight tells the story of Lewis Bernt, a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator who survives a mysterious plane crash, bringing him on an emotionally disorienting quest to discover the accident’s cause. WME-repped Demme also directed the pilot for the CBS drama series A Gifted Man, on which he served as executive producer.
