"Lost" executive producer Carlton Cuse and star Josh Holloway are teaming up again for the USA science-fiction series "Colony."

The series from Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, which is executive produced by Cuse and co-written by Cuse and Ryan Condal, was given a first season 10-episode order.

Set in Los Angeles in the near-future, the series focuses on a family struggling to get by after a force of "outside intruders" occupies the city.

Sarah Wayne Callies, most recently of "The Walking Dead," also stars. The pilot will be directed by Juan Jose Campanella, whose "The Secret in Their Eyes" won the Oscar for foreign-language film in 2010.

Cuse and Holloway previously worked together on the ABC hit "Lost," where Cuse was co-show runner with Damon Lindelof and Holloway played the roguish hero, Sawyer.

Though unlike the swoony ladies' man of "Lost," Holloway is playing a family man here, opposite Callies.

This will mark Cuse's fourth series on the air right now. He's also executive producer of "Bates Motel" and "The Returned" on A&E and "The Strain" on FX.
