Gideon Raff (Homeland) and Tim Kring (Heroes) will shoot a drama thriller series set in Jerusalem.
Homeland and Heroes producers, Gideon Raff and Tim Kring, have signed a 6-episode deal with USA Network for a new drama thriller series called Dig. The show, which will be entirely shot in Jerusalem, is about an American FBI agent who is investigating the murder of a female archaeologist. During the investigation, he uncovers a centuries-old conspiracy that threatens to change the course of history.
Keshet Media Group CEO Avi Nir said to Variety that “Jerusalem is a city of great drama – religious drama, archeological drama, even the mere fact that the city is divided among Christians, Muslims, Jews and Armenians. And I realized that this drama of archeology, it had never been dealt with before.”
The series Dig is set to premiere in late 2014.
