This looks absolutely INSANELY good. TNT has released a new trailer for the eagerly anticipated series Falling Skies, featuring new action-packed show footage and interviews with stars Noah Wyle (ER, The Librarian movies), Moon Bloodgood (Terminator: Salvation) and Drew Roy (Secretariat). The trailer gives an inside look at the series, which is set to launch with a two-hour premiere Sunday, June 19, at 9/8c, before moving into its regular timeslot of Sundays at 10/9c.
Falling Skies opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. The few remaining survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers engage in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery. Falling Skies is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. The survivors may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. The series combines stunning visual effects and personal human stories about triumph and survival in the most devastating circumstances.
It stars Wyle as Tom Mason, a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. Bloodgood also stars as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the survivors. Will Patton (Armageddon, Into the West) plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver. And Roy plays Mason’s eldest son and fellow-fighter, Hal. The show comes to TNT from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg.
