Amazon Studios Nears Pilot Order on Civil War Drama 'Point of Honor'

Carlton Cuse

The project, penned by "Lost's" Carlton Cuse, comes from ABC Studios.

Amazon Studios is nearing a pilot order for Point of Honor, a Civil War drama from writer Carlton Cuse (Lost) and director Randall Wallace (Secretariat).

The project, which comes from ABC Studios where it was initially developed for ABC in 2011, will follow a Virginia family that is divided by the Civil War. It will be executive produced by Cuse and Barry Jossen, the former head of ABC Studios who now runs scripted programming at A&E Studios.   

Honor is expected to join Amazon's upcoming slate of pilots, set to be released later this year, which include Whit Stillman drama Cosmopolitan and Ron Perlman starrer Hand of God

If ultimately ordered to series, Cuse would have at least four series on offer. His post-Lost collection currently includes A&E's Bates Motel as well as forthcoming entries at FX (The Strain) and A&E (The Returned). 

Both Cuse and Wallace, whose other credits include Braveheart and Heaven is for Real, are repped by WME.
