USA Gives Series Order to Drama 'Falling Water' from Henry Bromell & Blake Masters

USA has given a series order to drama Falling Water created by Blake Masters and the late Henry Bromell, it was announced by network president Chris McCumber from the Television Critics Association's winter press tour.

The drama was one of the last projects Bromell worked on before his unexpected death in 2013 from a heart attack. The Emmy-winning writer-producer (for Homeland) was 65.

Falling Water is a mind-bending thriller intersecting reality and unconscious thoughts. It centers on 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.

The drama stars David Ajala, Will Yun Lee and Lizzie Brochere.

Masters will executive produce with Gale Anne Hurd and pilot director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. Universal Cable Productions and Valhalla Entertainment will produce.

"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 of 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."
