“Falling Water” has been ordered to series at USA Network, Variety has learned. The drama hails from “The Walking Dead’s” Gale Anne Hurd, and was co-written by Blake Masters and the late Henry Bromell.
“Falling Water” revolves around three strangers who realize they are dreaming separate parts of the same dream that has big implications for each of their lives. 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, and that the visions found in their common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world.
David Ajala (“Fast & Furious 6”), Will Yun Lee (“Hawaii 5-0”) and Lizzie Brochere (“American Horror Story: Asylum”) have been cast to star in the series.
Ajala will play 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. Lee plays Taka, an intuitive NYPD Detective, whose leap-of-faith insights put him on the trail of an obscure dream-obsessed cult. 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.
“‘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 of original programming at USA Network. “It is an edge-of-your seat thriller that reveals a race to control the collective conscience.”
