According to reports, the USA network has picked up Universal Cable Productions dramatic fantasy series "“Falling Water", from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd ("The Walking Dead"), Blake Masters ("Brotherhood") and the late Henry Bromell ("Homeland"):
"....'Falling Water' is the story of three unrelated people, who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each of them is on a mysterious and highly personal quest — one is searching for his missing girlfriend, one is searching for a lost child, one is looking to cure his catatonic mother — and it is the clues found in their collective dream that come to guide them.
"The deeper they dig, though, the more they come to realize that their missions touch on stakes that are much larger than their individual agendas. That the visions found in their common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world. »
