The USA network has ordered a science-fiction pilot, “Colony,” from Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel,” “The Strain”) and Ryan Condal (“Hercules”).

Set in the near-future in Los Angeles, “Colony” is a drama about a family struggling to stay together when humanity’s survival is threatened. In the show, outside intruders hold the city in a state of occupation. “Colony” then details how collaboration with the ruling force and rebellion against the order have both benefits and consequences.

“‘Colony’ is a gripping story that brilliantly weaves together an intense family drama in an authentic, yet unknown, world,” says USA president Chris McCumber in a statement. “We are pleased to be in business with Ryan Condal and Carlton Cuse, who is clearly one of the best in the industry when it comes to genre fiction.”
