NBC is resurrecting Heroes as an event miniseries, the network announced Saturday.
Similar to Fox's 24 reboot, Live Another Day, the planned miniseries Heroes Reborn will consist of a 13-episode stand-alone story arc. The episodes will air in 2015, and NBC will launch a digital series ahead of the premiere to introduce new characters and storylines.
Jason Isaacs has been cast as the lead role in USA's thriller Dig, TVGuide.com has learned.

USA has has given a six-episode commitment to Dig, an action series from Heroes' Tim Kring and Homeland's Gideon Raff, the network announced Wednesday.
Touch kicks off its oft-delayed second season Friday, with a two-hour premiere that provides answers to a few questions, and raises a slew of others. The action-packed premiere, which airs at 8/7c on Fox, kicks off a season that promises higher stakes and added danger for Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland) and his son Jake (David Mazouz), according to showrunners Tim Kring and Carol Barbee.

Good news and bad news at Fox on Wednesday.
The network axed freshman series Alcatraz and The Finder, while renewing Kiefer Sutherland's Touch, according to Deadline and their sister site TVLine. Fox declined to comment until their Upfront presentation next week.

It's nail-biting time for fans of programs that haven't yet been picked up for next season. As network executives make their final decisions next month on which shows to renew and which ones to cancel, low ratings across the board aren't making their jobs any easier.
It used to be pretty clear which shows were hits and what could be deemed a flop. But this spring, primetime ratings have once again slumped to levels ...
Danny Glover's stint on the new Fox drama Touch was a temporary one, as viewers found out last week. Now that Glover's character has been killed off the Kiefer Sutherland series, creator Tim Kring confirms that the actor had signed on to only appear in the show's first six episodes.
Last Thursday's episode ended with Glover's character, Prof. Arthur Teller, slumped over his...
David Mazouz and Kiefer Sutherland
Will Kiefer Sutherland always save the day?
Viewers who tuned into the premiere of his newest series Touch watched as his character Martin Bohm pieced together a puzzle indirectly given to him by his autistic son Jake (David Mazouz). By the end of the hour, Martin, like Sutherland's Jack Bauer, connected the dots in the nick of time, saving a young boy from a bomb, reuniting a grieving couple and leading a lottery winner to save a bunch of kids from a burning bus. But will each episode always end with...
24 fans are used to unexpected jolts and cliffhangers, but few were as dramatic as a report in TheWrap last week claiming the long-gestating big-screen version might be delayed or sidelined entirely over a budget and salary dispute between Fox and star/producer Kiefer Sutherland.
So at the American Museum of Natural History-hosted worldwide Internet premiere of his new Fox series Touch in New York City Sunday night, TV Guide Magazine interrogated Jack Bauer himself.
"I have a very definitive window because of Touch and other commitments to make [the 24 film]," said Sutherland, who also exec produces Touch. "We're still trying to get it in this slot. It's looking — in all fairness and all honestly — less probable, but we're still trying. And if we don't, we'll wait eight months and do it then. What's most important is that we put ourselves in a position ...
Kiefer Sutherland, Touch
Inside his trailer on the set of his new Fox series Touch, Kiefer Sutherland can't stop thinking about numbers: 12,000,000... 318... 100...
"It boggles the mind," he says. "It's become a huge part of my life."
No, Sutherland hasn't become obsessed with patterns like his son on the show. Touch tells the story of Martin Bohm (Sutherland), a once promising journalist who's now a widower unloading baggage at JFK. His 11-year-old special-needs son, Jake (David Mazouz), scribbles strangely prescient numbers into notebooks but has never uttered a word. In each episode of the drama, Jake connects those numbers to...
