RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia has been chosen as the location to film a pilot for a television series about a Virginia family whose lives are torn apart by the Civil War.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office says a division of ABC Studios is co-producing Point of Honor with Amazon Studios.

Filming will take place in September around central Virginia and streaming episodes will be part of the Amazon prime service.

Randall Wallace, who directed the 2010 film Secretariat, will lead the project. Wallace is also known for his screenplay for Bravehart and most recently directed the film Heaven is for Real.

Point of Honor is co-written and produced by Carlton Cuse, executive produce for the hit series Lost.
