Description: A mind-bending drama, FALLING WATER is the story of three unrelated people, who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream.  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. That the visions found in their common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world. USAnetwork.com

Status End Status: This show wrapped up its first year averaging only a 0.15 rating based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic, making it USA’s lowest rated series and definitely not a sure thing for renewal. But the network worked out an exclusive deal with Amazon for the VOD sales of the show which apparently helped it secure its second season. This renewal is particularly of interest because it continues to show that the old school Nielsens have less influence on the survival of shows on the cable channels. But if fans want this one to survive to a third season, they should be active on the social networks to draw attention to it and build up its audience.
