USA Postpones Launch of ‘Dig’ to 2015

16 September 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network has pushed back the planned fall launch of its six-episode event series “Dig” to 2015.

The show, co-created by “Homeland” executive producer Gideon Raff and “Heroes” co-creator Tim Kring, had faced production issues because of the conflict in the Middle East. Originally slated to film in Jerusalem in its entirety, the show ultimately moved production to Croatia. Interior shots are being filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A high-concept thriller, “Dig” follows an American FBI agent (played by Jason Isaacs) stationed in Jerusalem, who discovers a conspiracy during the course of a murder investigation. The cast includes Anne Heche, Alison Sudol, Regina Sudol, David Constabile and Omar Metwally.

USA is likely to pick up more episodes beyond the original order of six.

USA's 'Dig' to Relocate to Croatia Amid Gaza Strip Conflict

6 August 2014 11:16 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

USA Network's Dig will be relocating to Croatia, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Though a timetable hasn't been finalized, the NBCUniversal-owned cable network is eyeing a Sept. 1 start date in Croatia and plans to film in the country for approximately 13 days. The hourlong drama, which was forced to move production from Israel after weeks of rocket attacks put it on a prolonged hiatus, will then move to Albuquerque, N.M. The six-episode event series from Tim Kring and Gideon Raff already shot its Jerusalem-centered pilot in the city. The conflict has stalled nearly all current and

USA’s ‘Dig’ Moves Filming to Croatia (Exclusive)

6 August 2014 11:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network’s “Dig” has found a new filming location: Croatia.

The six-episode series, co-created by “Homeland” executive producer (and Jerusalem native) Gideon Raff and “Heroes” co-creator Tim Kring, is set entirely in Jerusalem and cast and crew had been lensing on location in the Holy City since early summer. After fighting broke out between Israel and Gaza in July, however, NBC execs made the difficult decision to pull out their teams, relocating them instead to Albuquerque while scouting for a location whose exteriors could pass as Jerusalem on screen.

This week they settled on Croatia, Variety has learned, and will arrive in the Balkans on Sept. 1 for 13 days of shooting. Interior shots will continue to be filmed in Albuquerque.

‘Dig’ On USA: Producers Talk Relocating from Jerusalem to Albuquerque, ‘Da Vinci Code’ Comparisons

4 August 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network’s “Dig” is perhaps the cabler’s most ambitious project to date — a high-concept mystery thriller that hails from “Homeland” executive producer Gideon Raff and “Heroes” creator Tim Kring. Set amid the ancient streets and catacombs of Jerusalem, the six-episode event series stars Jason Isaacs as Peter Connelly, an FBI agent stationed in the city, who, while investigating a murder, uncovers a conspiracy 2000 years in the making.

Critics have yet to see the series premiere, but the show still made headlines last month after the escalating conflict between Israel and Gaza forced production to shift from Jerusalem to Albuquerque during a pre-scheduled hiatus. “Dig” is the second of Raff’s shows to be affected by the ongoing violence in the region, after FX’s “Tyrant” relocated from Tel Aviv to Istanbul to finish the last two episodes of its freshman season.

Tim Kring returned to Comic-Con with his latest show, Dig, a TV mini-series on USA, which will employ the multi-story narrative style that he used so effectively in Heroes and Touch.  Gideon Raff, a writer and producer on Homeland, serves as series co-creator on Dig.  The show is set in Jerusalem, where Raff was born and raised, and follows an American FBI agent (Jason Isaacs) who uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy while investigating the murder of an American archaeologist.  Anne Heche also stars as Isaacs’ love interest and David Costabile is an American minister with possibly sinister intentions. Kring and Raff answered questions for the press, following the show’s debut at Comic-Con on Thursday.  During the interview, the two shared their thoughts on shooting on location in Israel and the importance of using multiple digital platforms to engage an audience.  Hit the jump for more highlights from the interviews.

USA's 'Dig' Moves From Israel to Albuquerque Amid Gaza Strip Conflict

22 July 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Amid escalating rocket attacks for over two weeks towards Israel, filming of USA Network's upcoming Dig is relocating to New Mexico. The six-episode event series from Tim Kring and Gideon Raff already shot their Jerusalem plot-centered pilot in the Holy Land and were scheduled to resume filming last week following a hiatus. However, security tensions that saw the Israeli Defense Forces launch Operation Protective Edge on July 8 stalled production, which is now headed stateside.

Zachary Quinto Ponders NBC's ‘Heroes’ Reboot and Whether He's Bringing Back Sylar

16 July 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC is clearly trying to get the gang back together again for “Heroes Reborn.” We already know that Jack Coleman will reprise his role, but who else will creator Tim Kring lure back? Zachary Quinto, who played Sylar, the super villain (and fan favorite despite the evil things he did) who could absorb others’ powers, isn't sure he can be a part of the return. Also read: Jack Coleman to Return for NBC's ‘Heroes Reborn’ “I've been talking to Tim and I'm really excited that they're doing that show,” Quinto told TheWrap while promoting Starz's “The Chair.” “I don't really see the room for. »

'Heroes: Reborn' creator: Show to focus on 'brand new characters, brand new ideas'

15 July 2014 6:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Zachary Quinto and Ali Larter don’t want to return to "Heroes," and that works just fine for creator Tim Kring. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the "Heroes: Reborn" mastermind opened up about his plans for the resurrected superhero series, stressing that he plans to emphasize a new cast of heroes and villains — with the exception of a handful of veterans returning to the mix, like Jack Coleman as Noah Bennet. “The vast, vast majority are brand new characters, brand new ideas,” Kring said about the new incarnation, which is set in a post-Season 4 universe where the existence of super-powered people became public knowledge. “[Bringing back previous characters is] really only to give a sense of continuity and a tether to the original world. If it was all completely brand new, we’d miss certain elements that need to be there to give you that bridge to cross to something new. I approached Coleman because »

Series Creator Says Heroes: Reborn Will Focus Heavily On New Characters

15 July 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Like millions of television viewers, I was quite disappointed by the way NBC’s once-beloved series Heroes took a nose dive from exciting science fiction drama to cringe-worthy melodrama after a stellar first season. The show never reached the same heights again, but managed to limp on for 3 more seasons before getting put out of its misery in 2010.

Part of the show’s problem was its 22-episode format and stagnant group of characters, so the planned 2015 relaunch of the series, Heroes: Reborn, sounds like it could serve as a bit of an antidote to those mistakes. NBC announced their plans for the 13-episode “event series” earlier this year, and though we’ll all likely go into it with a bit of caution, some new details do make me a bit more optimistic about the show’s return.

Heroes creator Tim Kring talks Heroes Reborn

15 July 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in February, NBC announced that it is reviving Heroes for a new 13-part miniseries entitled Heroes Reborn, which was described as a reboot of the once-popular TV series. However, since then it’s been revealed that Jack Coleman is reprising the role of Noah Bennet (a.k.a. the Man in the Horn-Rimmed Glasses), indicating that Heroes Reborn would be more continuation than reboot. In recent days, both Ali Larter and Zachary Quinto have revealed that they won’t be returning, and now show creator Tim Kring has spoken to Entertainment Weekly about the revival, stating that it will have a strong focus on new characters.

“It takes place in a post-season 4 universe. So it will tie into some of the ideas that were left dangling. The vast, vast majority are brand new characters, brand new ideas. [Bringing back previous characters is] really only to give a sense of continuity and a tether to the original world. »

Zachary Quinto In 'Heroes: Reborn'?

14 July 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

"Heroes" will soon make a small screen return, rebooted as "Heroes: Reborn," a miniseries on NBC.

Zachary Quinto played a major role in the original series as Sylar – but will the actor be seen in the new show?

"I don't really know the trajectory of that," Zachary told Access Hollywood at the Television Critics Association event in Beverly Hills, as he sat down to discuss his Starz reality filmmaking competition, "The Chair." "I've been in touch with Tim Kring, the creator of 'Heroes,' because he's a great guy and changed my life and sent me on a ...

‘Dig’ on USA: Producers Debut Trailer, Talk Israel Filming Difficulties and Limited Series Model

14 July 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network debuted the first trailer from new drama “Dig” at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour on Monday, with executive producers Tim Kring and Gideon Raff, along with stars Anne Heche and Jason Isaacs, on hand to introduce the high-concept series.

Drawing comparisons to “The Da Vinci Code,” USA’s “Dig” stars Isaacs as Peter Connelly, an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem who, while investigating a mystery surrounding a young female archeologist named Emma (Alison Sudol), uncovers a conspiracy 2000 years in the making. Heche stars as Lynn Monahan, the head of the Jerusalem FBI office, Peter’s boss and casual lover. Regina Taylor joins the cast in the recurring role of Ruth Ridell, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel who has little time for the problems that Peter creates with the local authorities. Also recurring in the series are actors David Costabile, playing Ted Billingham, a coiffed and »

"Heroes" Creator Talks About Upcoming Reboot

14 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Heroes" series creator Tim Kring has revealed that it was the network who came to him rather than the other way around when the talk of rebooting NBC's once popular superhero series began.

Speaking with EW, Kring spoke about the origin of the upcoming "Heroes Reborn" and where he intends to go with it:

"To be honest, it wasn’t a pitch from me, it was a pitch from NBC to me. They saw the value in that franchise and brand and asked if I was interested in helming it again. And we had left the story in a place where we had more story to tell.

So given the opportunity, I had ideas of where I wanted the story to go originally when we were hoping for a fifth season and so when we were given the opportunity five years late, some of those same thoughts were there as to where this story goes. »

"Heroes Reborn" is still being developed, but creator Tim Kring said he would be open to seeing another slogan for the reboot of the NBC show.

"Save the cheerleader, save the world," was the slogan for the original "Heroes" series, and after the panel for his new USA show, "Dig," on Monday at the Television Critics Association Summer Tour in Beverly Hills, AccessHollywood.com asked Kring if he'd like another catch phrase for "Heroes Reborn."

USA's Dig Promises Closed-End Story (With Ties to Third Temple Prophecy?)

14 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

USA Network’s Dig promises to spin a closed-ended, six-episode story that maybe just might rub up against, Da Vinci Code-style, a provocative religious concept.

From executive producers Tim Kring (Heroes) and Gideon Raff (Homeland) and premiering this fall, Dig stars Jason Isaacs (Awake) as Peter Connelly, an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem, who, while investigating a mystery surrounding the murder of a young female archaeologist, uncovers a conspiracy 2,000 years in the making.

Press tour: 'Dig' finds complications and advantages in Jersualem filming

14 July 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Filming on location — particularly a location as old and rich with historical and spiritual import as Jerusalem — brings many advantages to a show like USA's upcoming conspiracy thriller "Dig." But it also carries with it significant risks. "Dig" stars Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche and producers Tim Kring ("Heroes") and Gideon Raff (creator of the Israeli series that inspired "Homeland," and deposed creator of FX's "Tyrant") came to press tour this morning eager to talk about their show and their excitement about getting to film it in Jerusalem, but they also had to acknowledge the complications that have resulted from the current wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence(*). (*) The blog's No Politics rule goes into full effect on this subject. "Dig" was already on a pre-planned hiatus after finishing its pilot episode, Raff explained, but for the time being, the show won't resume production until the conflict either subsides or until they »

Heroes Creator Tim Kring Says 13-Episode Miniseires Heroes: Reborn Will Focus Heavily on New Characters

14 July 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I was never fan of Heroes.  I thought it was poorly written with laughably bad special effects, but it found a following because it had a novel concept (or at least a novel concept for those who hadn't read J. Michael Straczynski's comic series Rising Stars).  However, the thin screenwriting became apparent over the course of 22-episode seasons, and the show eventually burnt out for those who kept hoping that there would be some consistency in the reveals or that storylines would have time to play out naturally before yet another game-changing twist. So perhaps the show will be better suited for a 13-episode limited series.  Earlier this year, NBC announced they were launching Heroes: Reborn, and now creator Tim Kring has provided a few details on what fans can expect.  Hit the jump for more. As far as returning characters, Jack Coleman is set to reprise his role as Noah Bennet, »

'Heroes Reborn' Will Mainly Focus on New Characters

14 July 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, NBC surprised viewers watching their Olympic coverage by debuting a brief teaser for Heroes Reborn, a 13-episode mini-series that revisits the hit series Heroes. It has already been announced that Heroes star Jack Coleman is returning as Noah Bennet (a.k.a. The Man in the Horned Rim Glasses/Hrg), but other original cast members such as Zachary Quinto, Hayden Panettiere and Ali Larter have expressed doubts about whether they will return or not.

Series creator Tim Kring revealed in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly that the story will primarily focus on a number of brand new characters.

"The vast, vast majority are brand new characters, brand new ideas. [Bringing back previous characters is] really only to give a sense of continuity and a tether to the original world. If it was all completely brand new, we'd miss certain elements that need to be there to give you that bridge to cross to something new. »
