After previewing the pilot and first two episodes, count me in! As a fan of both the Indiana Jones movies and Dan Brown’s conspiracy theory type novels, this cliff hanger kept my interest. With its secret society symbols that serve as blueprints, chase sequences, murder mystery, exotic locations and a dangerous centuries old conspiracy, what’s not to like?
If you enjoy a great mystery that as it unfolds, the intensity increases, you’ll find this ten-part “DIG” series to your liking. The story telling from multiple points of view, the intensity of the characters and the reality that the story raises as many questions as it answers, will keep your interest.
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.
