'Falling Water' has been ordered to series at USA Network. The drama hails from 'The Walking Dead’s' Gale Anne Hurd, and was co-written by Blake Masters and the late Henry Bromell.

'Falling Water' revolves around three strangers who realize they are dreaming separate parts of the same dream that has big implications for each of their lives. Each of them is on a mysterious and highly personal quest — one is searching for his missing girlfriend, one is searching for a lost child, one is looking to cure his catatonic mother — and it is the clues found in their collective dream that come to guide them.  The deeper they dig, though, the more they come to realize that their missions touch on stakes that are much larger than their individual agendas, and that the visions found in their common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world.
