The show, co-created by “Homeland” executive producer Gideon Raff and “Heroes” co-creator Tim Kring, had faced production issues because of the conflict in the Middle East. Originally slated to film in Jerusalem in its entirety, the show ultimately moved production to Croatia. Interior shots are being filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
A high-concept thriller, “Dig” follows an American FBI agent (played by Jason Isaacs) stationed in Jerusalem, who discovers a conspiracy during the course of a murder investigation. The cast includes Anne Heche, Alison Sudol, Regina Sudol, David Constabile and Omar Metwally.
USA is likely to pick up more episodes beyond the original order of six.
