USA Network is set to air a half-hour behind-the-scenes feature for its newest drama series “Dig” 10 days before its March 5, 2015 debut. Read on for further details.
As announced by USA Network in a press release published on various entertainment sites, the special preview episode of “Dig” will be aired on Monday, Feb. 23, 2015, at 11:00 p.m. on the cable channel. The feature will showcase scenes on location in Canada, Croatia, Israel and New Mexico, as well as interviews with the show’s cast and crew.
The behind-the-scenes special entitled “The Making of Dig” is led by Jason Isaacs, who plays FBI agent Peter Connelly. His character is the center of the story, which will delve into a conspiracy that dates back to 2,000 years ago. His co-star Anne Heche, who plays his immediate superior and occasional lover on the show, will clue viewers in on what “Dig” is all about in this 20-minute feature. Series creator Tim Kring (“Heroes”) and executive producer Gideon Raff (“Homeland”) will also explore the technical aspect and production of the series while shooting on location.
Cast members Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under”), Alison Sudol (“Transparent”), Regina Taylor (“The Unit”), Omar Metwally (“Non-Stop”), Ori Pfeffer “World War Z”), David Costabile (“Breaking Bad”) and Richard E. Grant (“Downton Abbey”) are also in the special, along with SJ Clarkson, who is the director of the show’s pilot episode.
Earlier, “The Making of Dig” was already released via Video On Demand (VOD) online.
The series is the first high concept action drama to be carried by USA Network, which primarily caters to light programs and procedurals like “Psych,” “White Collar” and “Burn Notice.” The event series, originally set for six episodes only, almost didn’t pan out due to production problems when the cast and crew were filming in war-torn Israel. Delays have forced the network to push its debut from fall 2014 to spring 2015.
Catch the special feature on “Dig” this Monday, Feb. 23, 2015, and don’t forget to tune to its premiere on Thursday, March 5, 2015. Watch the video below for a clip of “The Making of Dig.”
