'Falling Water' Team Breaks Down USA's Mind-Bending Drama in New Promo (Exclusive Video)
At first glance, the premise of USA Network's freshman drama Falling Water is a lot to process.
Described as "a mind-bending thriller intersecting reality and unconscious thoughts," Falling Water centers on three unrelated people (David Ajala, Lizzie Brochere and Will Yun Lee) who realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each is on a quest for something that can only be found in their subconscious — a missing girlfriend, a son, a way to communicate with a catatonic mother. However, the more they begin to use the dream world as a tool to advance their hidden agendas, they begin to realize that their visions are trying to tell them something more — and that their very real lives are at stake.
Thankfully, USA Network has unveiled a handy new promo to better set up the series for potential viewers, and The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive first look below.
"Falling Water starts with a really simple premise: What if all of our individual dreams are actually part of one giant dream we're all dreaming together?" explains co-creator and executive producer Blake Masters in the video.
Adds Ajala: "After watching the premiere, viewers will say, 'What the f—? Give me more.' "
The supernatural drama, which hails from exec producers Masters, Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later), is USA Network's latest big drama swing. In recent years, the NBCUniversal cabler has ditched blue-sky procedurals like Burn Notice and Psych for darker and heavily serialized series like the Golden Globe-winning Mr. Robot and the recently renewed Queen of the South.
Falling Water premieres Thursday, Oct. 13, at 10 p.m. on USA Network.
