USA has announced that upcoming event series DIG will premiere Thursday, March 5th, 2015. Additionally, the series, which originally had a six-episode order, will now have 10 episodes in its first season.
“We knew when we saw the exceptional pilot and immersed ourselves into the incredible world of intrigue that Tim and Gideon have created with DIG that we wanted more,” said USA President Chris McCumber. “With its multi-layered story, international locations, cinematic production and immensely talented cast, DIG promises to be a must-watch event series.”
Created by Tim Kring (Heroes) and Gideon Raff (Homeland), DIG focuses on FBI agent Peter Connelly (Jason Isaacs), who takes a job in Israel to escape his personal demons and give himself the type of fresh start that he needed. However, while attempting to solve the death of a young American, Peter discovers a conspiracy that goes back thousands of years and threatens to change the course of history as we know it.
In addition to Isaacs, DIG also stars Anne Heche (Save Me), Regina Taylor (The Unit), David Costabile (Low Winter Sun), Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), and Omar Metwally (Non-Stop).
