Comments Off on DIG: Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche Preview the New USA Network Event Series

USA Network is launching its newest series, DIG, tonight, and as the murder mystery unfolds, Jason Isaacs’ Peter and Anne Heche’s Lynn find themselves in the center of a story thousands of years in the making.

Both Heche and Isaacs are TV vets (the former appeared most recently on THE MICHAEL J. FOX SHOW, and the latter most recently appeared on ROSEMARY’S BABY), and the “event” nature of the series — in that the story had a beginning, a middle, and an end — appealed to them.

I sat down with the DIG stars last summer — before USA announced its decision to expand the event series to 10 episodes — to talk about the appeal of the show, and what might be in store for their characters…

BENCHED: Eliza Coupe on Getting to Play Her ‘Dream Role’

October 28, 2014 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Benched


USA Network debuts it’s latest comedy tonight, BENCHED, about a high-powered corporate lawyer’s fall from grace after an at-work meltdown after she found out her ex-fiancé has gotten engaged, and that she won’t be making partner at her firm. In an attempt to start over, Nina (played by former HAPPY ENDINGS star Eliza Coupe) takes a job as a public defender.

For Coupe, getting to play a character like Nina is a dream come true.

“I read the first two pages, and I was like, ‘What? How? Me? Really? They want me? Okay, done and done,'” she shared with reporters on the show’s set earlier this year. “The writing is so good. And I’m a huge fan of [BENCHED co-creator] Michaela [Watkins’], and knowing she was behind it…I had never worked with her, I was just always a fan of everything she did. What’s funny is right before this, she and I had done a table read together, because we’re both with the same agency, so we went to CAA and did a table read, and she was playing a bunch of different parts, and I was blown away — she was amazing. It was really just I read the first few pages, and I was like, this is a dream role. Are you kidding me? And the fact that they want me — is this a typo? Did someone get it wrong?”

And while Coupe has mainly been in ensembles pre-BENCHED — you may have seen her on SCRUBS and HAPPY ENDINGS — she’s relishing the chance to take the lead this time around.

Comments Off on USA Network Pushes DIG to 2015

USA Network has pushed their upcoming event series, DIG, to 2015 a rep for the show has confirmed.

DIG comes from HEROES creator Tim Kring and HOMELAND’s Gideon Raff, and follows an FBI agent (Jason Isaac) stationed in Jerusalem who discovers a conspiracy while investigating a murder. The series also stars Anne Heche.

Production on the series had faced some hiccups earlier in its run, as the series had to move production post-pilot from Israel. (It’s now filming in Croatia and New Mexico.)
