Holloway: Characters on 'Colony' expendable

Josh Holloway

NEW YORK (AP) — "Don't get too attached" to the characters on "Colony." That's Josh Holloway's advice to viewers of the new sci-fi series, which premieres Thursday on the USA network.

Holloway describes "Colony," which will air at 9 p.m., as "character-driven with a dapple of sci-fi." The series reunites the actor with his "Lost" producer Carlton Cuse.

"Colony" is set in the near future, where massive walls have been erected in an occupied Los Angeles. Electronic communication has been blocked, and drones track human movement. "It's an espionage thriller with aliens," Holloway says.

These walls separate Holloway and his wife, played by Sarah Wayne Callies, from one of their sons, and they are desperate to reunite their family.

" 'Colony' is about occupation," Holloway said. "It's the oldest story in human history. You either occupy or have been occupied by someone throughout human history."

Holloway said the writers want every season of "Colony" to be different and said "the finale's gonna shock you."
