USA Orders New Drama ‘Falling Water’

The Focus is on Three Different People Who are Dreaming Separate parts of a Single Common Dream

USA Network announced a series pick-up of “Falling Water” from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (“The Walking Dead”) of Valhalla Entertainment, Blake Masters (“Brotherhood”) and the late Henry Bromell (“Homeland”). The logline: “Falling Water” is the story of three unrelated people, who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each of them is on a mysterious and highly personal quest — 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.

The pilot was written and co-created by Masters and Bromell and is from Universal Cable Productions (UCP). Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“28 Weeks Later”) directed and will also executive produce the series. The cast includes David Ajala (“Fast & Furious 6”), Will Yun Lee (“Hawaii 5-0”) and Lizzie Brochere (“American Horror Story: Asylum”).

  1. Call me cynical, but does this sound like anything that will get more than a million viewers by the time they air episode 3?

    USA is imploding in front of our bemused eyes.
