Colony (1)

Colony premiered on USA January 14. The new show from Lost producer Carlon Cuse and showrunner Ryan Condal is about an alien occupation in Los Angeles. The aliens have walled off the city and some of the residents are cooperating with the occupiers. At the end of the pilot, we find out (spoiler alert!) that one of the main characters is working with the resistance.

We got a good, long interview with Cuse and Condal when they visited the Television Critics Association the day of the premiere. Cuse also addressed some questions about his other series Bates Motel, The Strain and even a lingering Lost question.  Read More »
