UNIVERSAL CITY, CA -- January 14, 2016 -- USA Network announced a series pick-up from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd ("The Walking Dead") of Valhalla Entertainment, Blake Masters ("Brotherhood") and the late Emmy Award-winner Henry Bromell ("Homeland") for the drama, FALLING WATER. 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 the pilot and will also executive produce the series. Bromell and Masters previously teamed up on "Brotherhood" and "Rubicon." David Ajala ("Fast & Furious 6"), Will Yun Lee ("Hawaii 5-0") and Lizzie Brochere ("American Horror Story: Asylum") are set to star in the series.

"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."

A mind-bending drama, 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.

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, Lee is Taka, an intuitive NYPD Detective, whose leap-of-faith insights put him on the trail of an obscure dream-obsessed cult; and 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 is the first pilot to be greenlit off of USA Network's 2015/2016 slate. Still in contention are the Ryan Phillippe starrer SHOOTER, a co-production from Paramount Television and Universal Cable Productions and executive producers Mark Wahlberg ("Boardwalk Empire," "Entourage") of Closest to the Hole Productions, Stephen Levinson ("Boardwalk Empire," "Entourage") of Leverage Entertainment, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers," "Zero Hour"); BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL, a co-production between Universal Cable Productions and IDW Entertainment, the pilot is written and executive produced by JT Petty ("Splinter Cell"), David S. Goyer ("Batman v Superman") also executive produced; THE WILDING from executive producers Tim Kring ("Heroes," DIG) and Silka Luisa ("To the Bone"); and POOR RICHARD'S ALMANACK, a co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, the project is from executive producer Jim Danger Gray ("Orange is the New Black") and consulting producer Miguel Sapochnik ("Game of Thrones").
