Will Viewers Dig Into USA's New Mystery Thriller? – Holy cow, there's a lot going on in USA's new 10-part event thriller Dig. The series, co-created by Heroes' Tim Kring and Homeland's Gideon Raff, mostly takes place in Jersualem, where FBI Agent Peter Connelly (Jason Isaacs) is tracking a fugitive with local detective Golan Cohen (Ori Pfeffer). [...] as Peter navigates his situation in Jerusalem -- made all the more complicated because he's sleeping with his boss Lynn (Anne Heche) -- viewers also spend time with an orthodox Jew in Norway who is protecting a red calf, believed to be the beginning of some great prophecy. [...] back in New Mexico, creepy religious leader Tad Billingham (David Costabile), who, with the help of one of his followers named Debbie (Lauren Ambrose), is raising a teenage boy (Zen McGrath) for some great (you guessed it!) unknown destiny. "Part of the fun of watching a show like this with multiple stories is that participation that you do as an audience when you want to know, 'Well how are these things connected?'" Kring tells TVGuide.com. Fortunately, Kring says that because the show is layering a 2,000-year-old religious conspiracy on top of a murder mystery, the audience can engage with the show even when they're not watching. "Because so much of it is based on actual archaeological and religious history, it's Google-able and people can actually participate in that way and learn more about what it is that we're talking about," Kring says. [...] at one point, Peter even references Indiana Jones. Can you imagine what's hiding under the 95 percent that hasn't been excavated?Adds Kring: There's certain archetypes that Raiders of the Lost Ark and Da Vinci Code have tapped into.
