USA Net resurrects ‘Dead’ for 4th year

Cabler enters the 'Zone'

USA Network is bringing sci fi drama “The Dead Zone” back for a fourth season.

Cabler has ordered 22-episode cycle of the skein with production on the new segs slated to begin in November.

Starring Anthony Michael Hall as a man with the ability to see into the future, hourlong continues to rank as one of the highest-rated original series on basic cable.

Third season averaged 3.5 million viewers per episode. “Dead Zone” got off to a rocky start against NBA Finals this summer but received a quick boost once it became the lead-out of hit event series “The 4400.” Third season was up 27% in USA’s target 25-54 demo from the previous season.

In addition, “Dead Zone” holds the second highest tally in total viewers (second only to “The 4400”) for a series premiere on basic cable. Debut drew 6.4 million viewers in June 2002.

Lions Gate TV and Paramount International TV produce the “Dead Zone.” Creator-scribe Michael Piller and Lloyd Segan exec produce. Nicole deBoer, Chris Bruno, John L. Adams and David Ogden Stiers also star.
