USA Network gins up three new action series, including Jason Isaacs in “Dig”

Jason Isaacs in Dig USA Network

Will USA Network ever be able to fill the void left by such stellar series as Burn Notice, Psych, White Collar, Fairly Legal, Monk, and In Plain Sight?  Each of these shows was just plain top-notch TV.  Coming in March, USA Network is giving it a good effort by featuring Jason Isaacs in Dig.

Dig comes with some great street cred: Homeland executive producer Gideon Raff and Heroes creator Tim Kring have put together a murder mystery and action-thriller.  Isaacs will play an FBI agent, and Anne Heche will co-star as his boss.  Isaacs has proven to be TV’s Bruce Willis–he’s nailed the embattled action hero time and time again on series like BBC’s Case Histories and NBC’s Awake.  Most probably know him as Lucius Malfoy from Harry Potter, plus roles in dozens of other films.

Dig - Season 1

After the break, check out the preview for Dig from USA Network, and more on other series coming soon from USA:

Look for Dig Thursday nights beginning March 5, 2015.

Complications series USA

USA has also released a preview for a new action thriller series called Complications. The big win for this new series is it will be helmed by Matt Nix, the writer/producer/director of Burn Notice.  Nix knows how to make a successful action series.  Complications stars Jason O’Mara, who played Detective Sam Tyler in the short-lived U.S. remake of Life on Mars.

Look for Complications this summer.

Finally, no trailer is out yet but USA will also be home to Mr. Robot, a new Sam Esmail series starring Christian Slater and James Roday.  Not much has been released on that show but it should be fun to watch Roday outside his Shawn Spencer role from Psych.
