USA Network’s newest miniseries offers a unique blend of mystery and adventure that should go over quite well when it premieres later tonight.
Created by Tim Kring (Heroes) and Gideon Raff (Homeland), Dig centers on an FBI agent (Jason Isaacs) stationed in Jerusalem who uncovers an ancient conspiracy while investigating the murder of an archeologist. Reeling from personal tragedy, he seeks out a distraction in the form of an affair with his boss (Anne Heche).
The series also weaves together additional narratives set in Norway and New Mexico, among other cities, and features turns from Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) and David Costabile (Breaking Bad).
Our very own Isaac Feldberg reviewed the show earlier this week, concluding the following about it:
Entertaining but a little too slack for its own good, Dig is perfectly diverting, high-octane fun that’s just a few turns of a scribe’s screwdriver away from taut and gripping appointment television.
Earlier this week at the show’s red carpet premiere in NYC, we had the chance to chat with Heche and Isaacs about shooting the series on location abroad, the complex relationship between their characters and conveying inner-turmoil.
Check it out in the video above and be sure to tune into Dig tonight at 10/9c!
