For a while there I was starting to think TNT might toss their expensive new sci-fi show “Falling Skies” into a closet somewhere and never reveal it to the world. After showing up momentarily at Comic Con, and nowhere else, the show has now finally gotten a 2-minute trailer courtesy of YouTube. It’s not the best quality, but it’s, well, something. You WILL believe that Noah Wylie can be an AK-47 packing badass. Well, maybe…
FALLING SKIES is an exciting new series from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. Noah Wyle (ER, TNT’s The Librarian movies) stars as a former college professor who becomes the leader of a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force. Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) co-stars as Anne Glass, a therapist who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic situation. The series also stars Drew Roy (Lincoln Heights) as Hal and Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tom’s two sons; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps run the group’s commissary. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT’s Into the West) will play a recurring role as a fierce resistance fighter. FALLING SKIES is slated to premiere in 2011.
Starring Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Lincoln Heights, Seychelle Gabriel, Will Patton, Maxim Knight, Drew Roy, Jessy Schram, and produced by Steven Spielberg.
