Dig (USA Network 2015, Jason Isaacs, Anne Heche)

An action thriller, Dig tells the story of a murder mystery set against the backdrop of modern day Jerusalem, a city shrouded in ancient intrigue. FBI agent Peter Connelly has had his fair share of heartbreak.

Anxious to leave his personal demons behind, Peter takes a job stationed in Israel under the guidance of his new boss, and occasional lover, Lynn Monahan.

When he sets out to solve the murder of a young American, Peter soon finds himself embroiled in an international mystery that delves into the Holy Land’s darkest secrets. What he discovers is a conspiracy thousands of years in-the -making that threatens to change the course of history. While Peter races to figure out what it all means, he quickly finds that he may not be the only one searching for answers.

Filming initially began in Tel Aviv, Israel but an outbreak of violence in the region led to the location being moved to first Croatia and then Albuquerque, New Mexico. USA Network had initially planned for just a six episode limited series but asked for further episodes once the pilot had been made.
