Now, wait a second, before all you start yelling because this sounds like a spoiler for The Walking Dead because how can he do his own show and continue to be The Governor, well, let’s just say it’s not that hard, because 1) AMC shows are only 12-15 episodes a year, 2) The Governor doesn’t have a ton of screentime on The Walking Dead, 3) The Walking Dead and Morissey’s new show will both be filming in Atlanta.

Granted, I wouldn’t expect that The Governor would be around forever on The Walking Dead, especially if his show is a hit, but I doubt many expected he would, anyway.

Oh, but that new show? You want to know the details of that? It’s called Line of Sight, and it comes from Brotherhood creator/writer Blake Masters and director Jonathan Demme. What’s it about? “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.”

That’s an entire series? Expected to run multiple seasons?

Um, OK. In Morrissey we trust, right? It’s gotta be better than Low Winter Sun.
