'Dig' Team Offers Inside Look at USA's New Middle East Drama (Exclusive Video)
First was Homeland, then Tyrant and now Dig.
The Middle East-set shows continue with USA Network's upcoming event series from Homeland creator, Gideon Raff, and Heroes creator, Tim Kring. The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive two-minute look at the drama, which bows March 5.
The action-thriller is centered around the murder of a young American in modern day Jerusalem. When FBI agent Peter Connelly, played by Jason Isaacs, takes a job stationed in Israel under his boss — and sometimes lover — Lynn Monahan (Anne Heche), he becomes entangled in the international mystery that takes him into the Holy Land’s darkest secrets.
"Dig is a cliff-hanger, edge-of-your seat, what's-going-to-happen-next thriller," Isaacs teases in the clip below. The series also stars Alison Sudol, David Costabile (Breaking Bad), Richard E. Grant (Downton Abbey), Regina Taylor (The Unit), Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Omar Metwally (Non-Stop) and Ori Pfeffer (World War Z).
