          An intersection between reality and unconscious thought, “Falling Water” is the story of three unrelated people, who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream.  Each is on a quest for something that can only be found in their subconscious.  However, the more they begin to use the dream world as a tool to advance their hidden agendas they realize that their visions are trying to tell them something more, and that their very real lives are at stake. One is searching for his missing girlfriend, one is searching for a lost child, one is looking to cure his catatonic mother — and it is the clues found in their collective dream that come to guide them. The deeper they dig, though, the more they come to realize that their missions touch on stakes that are much larger than their individual agendas. That the visions found in their common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world.

 

          “Falling Water” captivated us with its cinematic journey and unique exploration into the power of the dream world,” said Jackie de Crinis, Executive Vice President Original Programming, USA Network, “It is an edge-of-your seat thriller that reveals a race to control the collective conscience.”

          “Today’s world demands shows that both challenge and reward the audience in spectacular ways,” said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Falling Water” is the type of show that can move the needle of popular culture with its thrilling exploration of the dark side of the mind.”

          Premiere episode, “Don’t tell Bill”: David Ajala takes on the role of Burton, the head of in-house security for a multinational investment banking firm, whose personal and professional paranoia collide when an investigation into financial malfeasance at the firm leads to a backlash that engulfs his love life.  Meanwhile, Taka (Will Yun Lee), an intuitive NYPD Detective, whose leap-of-faith insights put him on the trail of an obscure dream-obsessed cult. Lizzie Brochere plays Tess, a cutting edge trend spotter with an uncanny ability to predict the next big thing, who is haunted by nightly dreams of an absent child. The series also stars Zak Orth, Kai Lennox and Anna Wood.
