USA Network has released the first trailer for Colony, the new science fiction television series from Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Hercules screenwriter Ryan Condal about a family’s struggle to survive and bring liberty back to the people of an occupied future Los Angeles. The show stars Lost actor Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies from The Walking Dead. Watch the Colony trailer embedded after the jump.
USA Network’s programing has been getting better. I really enjoy Suits and the early episodes of Mr. Robot, so I’m interested to check the pilot to this show out when it debuts this fall. Legendary Pictures’ involvement in the series also has me interested in this series. That said, the flourishes of visuals like the wall around Hollywood and the hovering robot droids have me more interested than the story shown in this first trailer.
Here is the official synopsis for Colony:
From executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Ryan Condal (“Hercules”) comes USA’s newest, highly-anticipated drama COLONY. Set in the very near future, COLONY centers on one family’s struggle to survive and bring liberty back to the people of an occupied Los Angeles. SAG winner Josh Holloway (“Lost”) stars as former FBI agent Will Bowman and Satellite Award winner Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”) stars as his wife, Katie, in the series which takes place in a dangerous world of divided ideologies. While some choose to collaborate with the occupation and benefit from the new order, others rebel and suffer the consequences. After being separated from their son during the invasion, Will and Katie are willing to do whatever is necessary to be reunited with him. Thus, when the powerful Proxy Snyder (Peter Jacobson, “House”) offers Will a chance to get his son back if he will collaborate with the occupational government, Will and Katie find themselves faced with the toughest decision of their lives. They will have to go beyond whatever they thought possible, risking their lives and their relationship to protect their family.
Colony is a co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions. Nelson McCormick (“24”) also executive produces.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
