ABC is developing a limited series based on Robert Massie’s best-selling novel “Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman”. Michael Cristofer (“Gia,” “The Witches of Eastwick”) will pen the script and executive produce alongside Debra Martin Chase (“The Princess Diaries”).
USA Network has picked up the six-episode action adventure event series “Dig” from “Heroes” creator Tim Kring and “Homeland” co-creator Gideon Raff. The show will be filmed in Jerusalem and will premiere late 2014.
The story follows an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem, Israel who is investigating a murder of a female archeologist. He uncovers a conspiracy 2000 years in the making that threatens to change the course of history. [Source: Zap2It]
