You're familiar with Carlton, no? He was one of the 'geniuses' who brought us the technically accomplished Lost for six seasons, promising time and time again that these plane crash survivors weren't dead only to renege on that vow in the seventh season and have them end up ... well ... kinda/sorta dead. I know, I know -- he and Damon Lindelof are sticking to the excuse ("what really mattered were these characters"), so shame on me for actually expecting legitimate closure with my SciFi/Fantasy programs.
His last truly inspired creation was Fox TV's The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. I stuck with his Bates Motel program throughout its first season, but when it became clear there really wasn't all that much new being added to the franchise other than some solid acting from the principles, I wrote that one off, too.
In any event, Deadline is today reporting that Cuse's latest creation -- Colony -- has been greenlit by the USA Network. As for the premise, the article states that the setting is Los Angeles of the near-future wherein some occupying force (alien) is now sharing power with Earth authorities, but that's really all I'm gleaning from the scuttlebutt. Deadline also states that Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead) have been cast, so there's something to be said for small miracles after all. (I think both are quite good when they're given quality material.)
