The Academy Award-winning director of “Silence of the Lambs” has signed on to direct and executive produce an upcoming AMC project. Deadline.com reports that Jonathan Demme has joined the drama pilot “Line of Sight.”

“The project, from ‘Brotherhood’ creator Blake Masters, marks AMC’s first foray into the sci-fi genre,” the story reports. “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.”

Demme won the Oscar for best director in 1992 for “Silence of the Lambs.” His other films include “Philadelphia,” “Married to the Mob” and “Something Wild.”
