On Thursday night, a Lost reunion will take place on your television screens. No, I’m not talking about Vincent and the polar bear; I’m talking about Josh Holloway and Carlton Cuse, whose creative energies will come together once more on the premiere of USA’s Colony at 10PM ET/9PM CT.
The sci-fi series takes place in a near-future version of Los Angeles which has been taken over by a mysterious, seemingly alien force. The result is a city under occupation, which is tearing itself apart as some citizens choose to collaborate with their captors while others rebel against the yoke of their new rulers. It’s a struggle that rocks the Bowman family when former FBI agent Will (Josh Holloway) and his wife Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) are made an offer they can’t refuse: they will be reunited with their missing son, but only if Will collaborates with the occupation government. I have enough trouble deciding what I’m going to eat for lunch, so I don’t envy having to make a life-or-death choice like that.
In order to get you excited for the brand new series, Jessica Chobot and I will be hosting a live pre-show entitled Beyond the Wall at 5PM PT on the Nerdist YouTube channel. Joining us live on air will be creators Carlton Cuse and Ryan J. Condal, as well as stars Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, Peter Jacobson, Amanda Righetti, Tory Kittles, and Jacob Vargas. While Jessica and I will have scores of nerdy questions of our own about the new sci-fi series, you’ll have a chance to ask the cast questions of your very own. In order to submit a question, tweet it out or enter it in the livestream chat using the hashtag #NerdistColony, and we might just read it live!
Colony premieres Thursday, January 14 on USA Network at 10/9c. Beyond the Wall goes live on Thursday at 5PM PT on http://www.youtube.com/nerdist.
