Warning: Spoilers Ahead

I’ve been excited about this series since I heard the actors and producers talk about it at last year’s Comic-Con. If you know me at all, you know how much I love Jason Isaacs. I will watch him do anything, anywhere, anytime. I’ve been a fan of Anne Heche since she played twins on Another World and have made it a point to sample everything she’s done since then. On top of that, the villain is played by David Costabile — who, in my opinion, is one of the most frightening and menacing bad guys to ever grace the small screen. I wasn’t a regular watcher of Six Feet Under, but I am I fan of Lauren Ambrose and I think this will be a breakout role for Alison Sudol. And what about the creators of this series? If you’ve watched Homeland, Tyrant, Heroes or Touch, you’re familiar with EPs Gideon Raff and Tim Kring.

Series synopsis, from USA Network:

An action thriller, DIG 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 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. 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.
