John Connor [Cathode Ray Mission 07.16.15] scifi action thriller dystopic



There's a new show hitting USA Network this fall called The Colony. The show centres on a family struggling in an occupied LA of the future. With everyone talking about Mr. Robot, maybe USA is becoming a real contender in the TV landscape.

The Colony is produced by Carlton Cuse (The Strain, LOST) and Ryan Condal (Hercules) and stars Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies formerly of The Walking Dead.


Synopsis:
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.

This looks way too familiar. Alien (?) invasion, former cop/soldier/spy looking for his son/spouse/partner, hints of a shady black market/underground/resistance... been there and done that. Hacker Fight Club and Wondering Pines are enough trope goulash for now, thanks.
