I’m headed out to New Mexico this afternoon for a set visit with USA Network’s newest series, DIG! The series is the latest project from the executive producers of Showtime’s Homeland and NBC’s Heroes.
Generating buzz since San Diego Comic-Con 2014, DIG is an action thriller which tells the story of a murder mystery set against the backdrop of modern day Jerusalem, a city shrouded in ancient intrigue. FBI agent Peter Connelly (Golden Globe nominee Jason Isaacs, “Awake”) has had his fair share of heartbreak. Anxious to leave his personal demons behind, Peter takes a job stationed in Israel under the guidance of his new boss, and occasional lover, Lynn Monahan (Emmy Award-winner Anne Heche, “Save Me”). When he sets out to solve the murder of a young American, Peter soon finds himself embroiled in an international mystery that delves into the Holy Land’s darkest secrets. What he discovers is a conspiracy thousands of years in-the-making that threatens to change the course of history. While Peter races to figure out what it all means, he quickly finds that he may not be the only one searching for answers.
We’ll be observing production as well as touring the Albuquerque set on Tuesday, and of course we’ll be doing interviews with the cast and producers as well. Jason Isaacs, Anne Heche, Regina Taylor, Ori Pfeffer and co-creators and executive producers Gideon Raff and Tim Kring will all be present.
DIG premieres on USA Network March 5, 2015!
What are your thoughts on DIG? And if you have any questions you’d like to ask the cast or producers – please let me know, and I’ll ask as many as I can tomorrow.
