“The only thing in this world we can trust is ourselves…”
The Hosts have taken over. A curfew has been set. Welcome to USA’s new drama series Colony.
Instead of the usual story that strings us along from the very beginning with the Aliens invading and what happens next, Colony starts us off after that’s already happened. Now we’re dealing with the aftermath of how people are surviving the invasion and what they have to do to stay alive and keep their families together.
The show has a slow start, but will leave you wanting more by the end. The last few minutes will have you hooked, looking to hit play on the next episode.
From executive producers Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Ryan Condal (Hercules) comes USA’s newest, highly-anticipated drama Colony which is set in the near future and centers on one family’s struggle to survive and bring liberty back to the people of an occupied Los Angeles.
Josh Holloway (Lost) stars as former FBI agent Will Bowman and 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.
Colony premieres Thursday, January 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on USA.
