USA Network’s Jason Isaac’s fronted event series ‘DIG’, which had been slated to premiere this Fall, has been pushed to early 2015.
According to Deadline, USA Network opted to delay the launch of the series due to production issues arising from the Gaza conflict, which forced USA and Universal Cable Productions to abandon the Jerusalem based shoot after the pilot. UCP subsequently announced that they would instead continue filming in Croatia and New Mexico, a move that made it difficult to deliver the series in time for a Fall launch.
DIG follows FBI Special Agent Peter Connelly (Jason Isaacs) who is currently working in Jerusalem. While there, Connelly finds himself embroiled in a race to track down a religious artifact that could trigger an event that would change the course of history. During the search he becomes the suspect in a sensational murder.
The drama, which hails from Heroes creator Tim Kring, features an all star cast which in addition to Isaacs, includes Anne Heche (Save Me), Alison Sudol (A Fine Frenzy), Regina Taylor (The Unit), David Costabile (Breaking Bad), Omar Metwally (Non-Stop) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under).
