As with any dramatic series, casting your leads is one of the most important pieces of the puzzle and so we asked executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) to share some of the backstory of finding Falling Water's compelling main actors. Interestingly, they all came to the project through very different avenues (including a significant re-write to accommodate one of the actors), but there's one thing all three of them have in common.
USA Network spoke with Lizzie Brocheré about her Falling Water character, a professional trendspotter living in Brooklyn who knows with every fiber of her being that she once gave birth to a baby boy. While she searches for her son, Tess soon realizes that her dreams may not only hold the answer to her personal quest -- but also the fate of the world. We learned some other cool things about Brochere's personal journey as well!

Few would have guessed that, once New York’s hottest trend-spotter, Tess Brighton had suffered a mental breakdown seven years earlier and was institutionalized. After her discharge, Tess starts having lifelike dreams of giving birth to a son – and she might have been convinced that she was actually crazy, if not for an offer from millionaire tech mogul Bill Boerg.
The cast and crew of Falling Water attend the Television Critics Association in Beverly Hills on August 3, 2016.
