USA Network is borrowing some rocket fuel from its sibling studio Universal Pictures to attract eyeballs to the March 5 premiere of its 10-episode event series DIG. The network during tonight’s WWE Raw will unveil a teaser for an exclusive clip from Furious 7 that will air during DIG‘s opening episode March 5 at 10 PM. USA will also air Fast Five ahead of DIG, and the exclusive clip during the episode will be introduced by franchise star Vin Diesel.
Furious 7, the latest in the lucrative Universal franchise that also features some of the last work of Paul Walker, bows everywhere April 3. (Check out the promo clip to air tonight on Raw above.)
DIG is an action thriller set against the backdrop of modern Jerusalem with a pedigree that includes Tim Kring (Heroes) and Gideon Raff (Homeland).
