USA Orders Pilot for Inception-Like Thriller From TWD, Homeland EPs

USA Colony Pilot Aliens

USA Network has ordered a pilot for Falling Water, a thriller executive-produced by Walking Dead vet Gale Anne Hurd, the late Emmy winner Henry Bromell (Homeland) and Blake Masters (Brotherhood).

Co-created by Masters and Bromell (who passed away in 2013), the project is described as a mind-bending thriller that intersects reality and unconscious thoughts, as three unrelated people slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream.

Each of the three characters on a quest for something that can only be found in their subconscious — a missing girlfriend, a son, a way to communicate with a catatonic mother — but the more they begin to use the dream world as a tool to advance their hidden agendas, they realize that their visions are trying to tell them something, and that their very real lives are at stake.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) will direct the pilot, and is also among the EPs.

“People have always been fascinated by the subconscious and Falling Water explores that topic in very unique and unexpected ways,” USA Network EVP Jackie de Crinis said in a statement. “In this story, the immensely talented and prolific storytellers, Blake and Henry, have created an innovative thriller and compelling vehicle to bring the subject of dreams to television.”

    This sounds really good; I’ve never seen Inception, so it’s new to me.

    This sounds unwatchable.

    Inception was pretty bad, so I dunno what to expect here. Hopefully it’s written better than Inception was.

    Cool. I look forward to seeing this and Colony from Gale Anne Hurd.

    I’d like to give it a try but am afraid I might like it only to hear it’s been cancelled.
