As reports of hacking dominate the headlines, USA Network has announced a series pickup for next season with the hacking drama “Mr. Robot”.
The ten-episode drama stars Christian Slater and Rami Malek, and follows a mysterious anarchist who recruits a young computer programmer (Malek) who suffers from an anti-social disorder and connects to people by hacking them.
Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin and Martin Wallstrom also star. The program joins several new dramas on the network including “Dig” starring Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche, and the medical drama “Complications” with Jason O’Mara and Jessica Szohr.
