From the executive producers and creators of “Heroes” and “Homeland” (Tim Kring and Gideon Raff), DIG tells the story of a murder mystery set against the backdrop of modern day Jerusalem, a city shrouded in ancient intrigue. When FBI agent Peter Connelly (Golden Globe nominee Jason Isaacs, “Awake”) takes a job stationed in Israel, he has no idea what is in store for him. As he sets out to solve the murder of a young American, he soon finds himself embroiled in an international mystery that delves into the Holy Land’s darkest secrets. What Peter discovers is a conspiracy thousands of years in the making that threatens to change the course of history. While he races to figure out what it all means, he quickly finds that he may not be the only one searching for answers.
The series also stars Emmy Award-winner Anne Heche (“Save Me”), Alison Sudol (“Transparent”), David Costabile (“Breaking Bad”), Screen Actors Guild Award-winner Richard E. Grant (“Downton Abbey”), Golden Globe Award-winner Regina Taylor (“The Unit”), Emmy Award nominee Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under”), Tony Award nominee Omar Metwally (“Non-Stop”) and Ori Pfeffer (“World War Z”).
