HBO has released another trailer Damon Lindelof's awesomely intense new series The Leftovers. The story picks up in the aftermath of a Rapture-type event that has caused the disappearance of millions of people around the world. The series stars Justin Theroux and Liv Tyler, and I'm intrigued by what I've seen. There's something about unsettling stories that I really enjoy, and this show definitely has that. Here's the synopsis:
When 2% of the world’s population abruptly disappears without explanation, the world struggles to understand just what they’re supposed to do about it. The new drama series ‘The Leftovers’ is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut.
Based on the bestselling novel by Tom Perrotta, ‘The Leftovers’ follows Kevin Garvey, a father of two and the chief of police in a small New York suburb, as he tries to maintain some semblance of normalcy when the notion no longer applies. The series is executive produced by ‘Lost’ co-creator Damon Lindelof, together with Perrotta and ‘Friday Night Lights’ executive producers Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey. Lindelof serves as the series showrunner.
The first of ten episodes is set to premiere on Sunday, June 29th!
