HBO Orders To Series LOST Mastermind Lindelof’s Rapture Hourlong THE LEFTOVERS!!
HBO has just ordered to series Damon Lindelof’s first TV project since “Lost.”
Based on Tom Perrotta’s 2011 novel “The Leftovers” follows what happens to those who are not transported to Heaven during The Rapture.
In the New York Times, Stephen King called the book “the best Twilight Zone episode you never saw."
The series stars Liv Tyler (“Armageddon,” “Lord of the Rings,” “The Incredible Hulk”), Justin Theroux ("Wanderlust," "Your Highness"), Anne Dowd ("The Informant!" "Side Effects"), Christopher Eccleston (“Doctor Who,” “GI Joe”), Amanda Warren ("The Adjustment Bureau") and Carrie Coon ("Law & Order: SVU").
Perrotta has seen two of his other books adapted into excellent movies: Alexander Payne’s 1999 satire “Election” and Todd Field’s “Little Children,” which earned Perrotta an Oscar nomination for best adapted screenplay.
Lindelof penned the pilot script with Perrotta, and will serve as showrunner. Peter Berg ("Friday Night Lights") directed the pilot.
Lindelof co-created and served as showrunner of “Lost” before he co-scripted “Cowboys & Aliens,” “Prometheus,” “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” “World War Z” and the upcoming Brad Bird/Disney project "Tomorrowland."
