DESCRIPTION: (from USA's press release, October 2014) USA Network has ordered four additional episodes of the highly anticipated event series DIG, bringing the series to a total of 10 episodes. Additionally, the network announced that the thriller will premiere on Thursday, March 5. DIG is executive produced by powerhouse auspices Tim Kring ("Heroes") and Gideon Raff ("Homeland"), and comes from Universal Cable Productions. The pilot was shot in Israel, and subsequent episodes are being shot in Croatia and New Mexico. 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 (Golden Globe nominee Jason Isaacs, "Awake") 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 (Emmy Award-winner Anne Heche, "Save Me"). 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.
