'DIG' is executive produced by Tim Kring ('Heroes') and Gideon Raff ('Homeland'), and comes from Universal Cable Productions. The pilot was shot in Israel, and subsequent episodes are being shot in Croatia and New Mexico.

An action thriller, 'DIG' tells the story of a murder mystery set against the backdrop of modern day Jerusalem, a city shrouded in ancient intrigue. FBI agent Peter Connelly (Jason Isaacs) has had his fair share of heartbreak. Anxious to leave his personal demons behind, Peter takes a job stationed in Israel under the guidance of his new boss, and occasional lover, Lynn Monahan (Anne Heche). When he sets out to solve the murder of a young American, Peter soon finds himself embroiled in an international mystery that delves into the Holy Land's darkest secrets. What he discovers is a conspiracy thousands of years in-the -making that threatens to change the course of history. While Peter races to figure out what it all means, he quickly finds that he may not be the only one searching for answers.

Created and executive produced by Kring and Raff, 'DIG' is from Universal Cable Productions and was developed by Keshet, in association with Gail Berman ('Buffy the Vampire Slayer') of The Jackal Group and Gene Stein ('Deception'). Keshet's Avi Nir ('Homeland'), Alon Shtruzman and Karni Ziv also serve as executive producers.

'DIG' is available for global markets as finished series and format. Both are distributed by Keshet International.
