Jeff Wachtel is diving into the increasingly popular event series business.
In his new position as chief content officer, Wachtel's first major move is a six-episode event series commitment for Universal Cable Productions called Dig, an action adventure drama from Heroes' Tim Kring and Homeland's Gideon Raff. The series, which was developed by Keshet (Homeland) in association with BermanBraun, will air on Wachtel's former network, USA, in late 2014.
Story: Tim Kring Developing Conspiracy Drama
Dig explores the world of Peter, an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem who, while investigating a murder of a woman archeologist, uncovers a conspiracy 2,000 years in the making that threatens to change the course of history.
