Viewers will have to wait a bit longer to see Dig on USA Network. The cable channel had planned to launch the new series this fall but the debut has now been pushed to sometime next year.
Created by Tim Kring and Gideon Raff, Dig follows an FBI agent (Jason Isaacs) who’s stationed in Jerusalem. While investigating the murder of a female archaeologist, he uncovers a 2000-year-old conspiracy that could change the course of history.
The Gaza conflict has prevented the series from filming episodes in Jerusalem. After some evaluation, production was moved to Croatia and will move to New Mexico. The delays put a strain on the production schedule so USA execs decided to give the team more time.
USA execs reportedly love the pilot and are considering ordering more episodes of Dig, beyond the initial six.
