The new NBCUniversal series “DIG,” which pulled out of Israel last month in response to continued military action in the region, as we reported previously, has set its sights on resuming filming in Croatia, Variety reports.
The six-episode series, which will air on USA Network, is set in Jerusalem, where the cast and crew had been on location since earlier this summer. But with the fighting, “NBC execs made the difficult decision to pull out their teams, relocating them instead to Albuquerque while scouting for a location whose exteriors could pass as Jerusalem on screen,” the story notes.
The series will resume shooting in Croatia on Sept. 1. The program stars Jason Isaacs as an FBI agent in Jerusalem, who is investigating a murder but also uncovers an ancient conspiracy. The drama is co-created by “Heroes” creator Tim Kring and “Homeland” executive producer Gideon Raff.
