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. The pilot was directed and executive-produced by Academy Award winning director Juan Campanella.
If most genre shows earn devoted followings by creating a unique flavor all their own, then "Colony" is a gumbo that throws in everything it thinks might taste good. Borrowing tropes, storylines, and even actors from noteworthy series that came before, the new USA series isn’t the most original or inventive program out there. But damn, it’s a lot of fun...The larger mysteries of the series also pull the viewer in, because they’re legitimately abstract, and yet have large consequences for the story. It’s unclear who the aliens are or what their larger plan is—no one Will knows has ever seen one (so far as he knows, anyway), despite seeing their ships roar into and out of the sky at night. That frustrated sense of not knowing lends weight to both the anger of the resistance and the resigned inevitability, on the part of the collaborators, of things as they are. No one is really right, and no one is wholly wrong...Again, these are compelling stories, not merely because they hold conceptual appeal, but because "Colony" executes them with fast-paced fun and breathless verve.--Alex McLevy, A.V.
