The Av Club reports that Masi Oka will reprise his fan-favourite role of Hiro Nakamura for this year's Heroes: Reborn. The time-travelling, teleporting geek Hiro played a key role throughout all four seasons of Heroes' original run from 2006 to 2010, so it's only fitting that he should return for the show's upcoming 13-episode limited-run series revival.
The dynamic between Hiro and his (mostly non-superpowered) best friend Ando Masahashi (James Kyson Lee) was hilarious, lending the show a much-needed humorous side to balance out the gripping arc-based storytelling drama. Not only that, but their friendship also provided some added emotional resonance. So hopefully James Kyson Lee will also return to complete the double act.
Hiro's relationships with some of the other characters also made for some brilliant storylines. For instance, there's his awkward, doomed romance with the adorable waitress Charlene 'Charlie' Andrews (Jayma Mays), continued in the amazing spin-off novel »

Oka and Coleman are joined by newcomers Zachary Levi, Ryan Guzman, Robbie Kay, Danika Yarosh, Judith Shekoni, Kiki Sukezane, Henry Zebrowski and Gatlin Green. Oka commented on his return, I’m excited to return to my ‘Heroes’ roots. Hiro Nakamura was such an inspirational role to play, and I’m hoping the fans will enjoy seeing him back on TV.

I blame Lost for most of the problems with Dig, USA‘s new investigation thriller, but frankly, I blame Lost for a lot of things.
The show is the latest entrant in the limited-run mystery genre, and revolves around Peter Connelly (Jason Isaacs), an FBI agent working in Israel, finding himself caught up in a bizarre conspiracy that spans the globe. Having caught sight of a redhead, who sticks out like a sore thumb among the crowds in Israel, Connelly follows her to the dig she’s been working on. It’s a massive archeological exploration of caves under the city. They stumble on an odd religious rite being performed by people who aren’t supposed to be there.
It isn’t as odd as it might seem to viewers, because we’ve already been introduced to some very “old school” Jews (no, really, really old school) who are fantastically »

A Once Upon a Time villain is now being reborn into one of NBC’s Heroes. Robbie Kay, who played Peter Pan during Season 3 of the ABC fairy-tale drama, has joined the cast of Heroes Reborn, NBC’s upcoming limited series reboot of the popular superhero show that ran for four seasons, which aired on the network from 2006 to 2010.

The cast of NBC's Heroes Reborn is slowly coming together, with Once Upon a Time star Robbie Kay signing on for an unspecified role in the upcoming event series. He will join original Heroes star Jack Coleman and Zachary Levi, who were both seen in the brief Super Bowl trailer that debuted back in February.

Series creator Tim Kring also added in July that Heroes Reborn will be set after the events of the original Heroes, which was canceled in 2010 after a four-season run.

Jerusalem – Keshet Media Group kicked off the first full day of its third annual Intv conference on Sunday with a fitting matchup: Keshet CEO Avi Nir sitting down to discuss the power of disruption in television with HBO topper Richard Plepler.

On Sunday, back at the historic Jerusalem Ymca building, Nir and Pleper launched the first of two days’ worth of panels by discussing their shared philosophy on the danger of hubris.

Jerusalem – The heavy hitters of the Israeli television industry gathered Saturday evening in Jerusalem to kick off Keshet’s third annual Innovation in Television conference, but started off the evening by paying tribute to Lia Van Leer, a pioneer of the Israeli film industry who died that morning at the age of 90.
The Intv Conference, a confab that brings together execs from across the globe for lectures, interviews and chats on the changing face of television, opened with a festive cocktail party and Israel’s premiere screening of the first episode of USA’s “Dig,” a Keshet-developed miniseries that bowed on U.S. screens on March 5.
Keshet CEO Avi Nir opened the evening remarks by saying that Van Leer, who founded cinematheques across Israel and for decades made an indelible mark on its film culture, would have been delighted to see the packed hall of attendees.

Despite a lackluster performance by its first-year programs, NBC appears to be a lock to finish the season on top in the key young-adults demo for a second straight year — and “The Voice” is the biggest reason why.
The music competition series has shown that it still has a lot left in the tank, dominating its four hours last week and helping the net edge out Fox in a frame when its monster hit “Empire” notched yet another high, as well as an improved ABC.
Another network that overcame a heavyweight program on the competition was Fox News Channel, which was the week’s most-watched cable network in primetime even though AMC’s “The Walking Dead” (and its 14.53 million viewers) was about four times more popular than any other cable program, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates.
Fnc, with 1.93 million viewers, drew about 200,000 more than AMC, TBS, USA and Disney Channel, »

In Live + 3 ratings, Dig had a 106% rise from the 1.83 million who watched the March 5 10 Pm debut of the Gideon Raff and Tim Kring created international drama. Among adults 18-49, the Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche starring show rose 88% in Live + 3 to 1.342 million. Over a total of three plays on USA that night, Dig shoveled up 5.8 million total… »
USA, in search of a needed new drama hit, opened its international mystery series “Dig” to sluggish same-night numbers on Thursday.
According to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates, the first hour of the 10-part event series averaged a 0.56 rating in adults 18-49 (about 711,000 viewers in the demo) and 1.83 million viewers overall. Among cable dramas, it was easily beaten by History’s established “Vikings” (0.79 rating in 18-49, 2.41 million total viewers).
Last night’s premiere score is about what USA did demo-wise in the same hour last week with a repeat “Law & Order: Svu” (0.55 in 18-49, 1.75 million total viewers), as well as on Wednesday at 10 p.m. this week with “Suits” (0.55 in 18-49, 1.55 million).
The premiere of “Dig” was an improvement over last year’s USA summer drama premieres of “Rush” (0.39 rating in 18-49) and “Satisfaction” (0.49), both of which drew about 1.71 million total viewers.
