Veteran Star Trek writer Ronald D. Moore, the brain behind the new Battlestar Galactica, has been working on the USA Network's Touching Evil.
Moore is credited as a consulting producer on the series, which debuted on March 12, according to USA's official web site. He also penned the third episode of the season, entitled "Justine".
Based on a British mini-series of the same name, Touching Evil centres around Detective David Creegan, played by Jeffrey Donovan (Sleepers, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2). Creegan was shot in the head in the line of duty and took a year-long psychological leave of absence. Upon his return to active duty, he is assigned to the Organised and Serial Crime Unit with a new partner, Susan Branca (UC: Undercover's Vera Farmiga). Creegan's near-death experience gives him an unorthodox, almost reckless, approach to crime solving.
The show also stars a familiar Star Trek guest actor, Brian Markinson as Agent Bernal, Creegan's rival. Markison searched for immortality as Dr. Giger in Deep Space Nine's "In the Cards" and ended up being harvested by Vidiians as Lieutenant Durst in Voyager's "Faces".
Touching Evil airs every Friday at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the USA Network. The schedule can be found at this page. Thanks to David Kirby for this!
