USA Adds ‘Colony,’ Farewell to ‘Falling Skies’
Out goes Falling Skies, in comes Colony.
USA Network has picked up Colony, an alien occupation drama from Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel, The Strain) and Ryan Condal (Hercules).
Set in the near future, Colony finds Los Angeles in a state of occupation by paparazzi alien intruders. While some humans collaborate with (and thus benefit from) the new “regime,” others rebel and suffer the consequences. At the crux of the story is a family torn by the opposing ideologies.
“Colony is a gripping story that brilliantly weaves together an intense family drama in an authentic, yet unknown, world,” USA Network president Chris McCumber said in a statement. “We are pleased to be in business with Ryan Condal and Carlton Cuse, who is clearly one of the best in the industry when it comes to genre fiction.”
