HBO Green Light’s The Leftovers: Damon Lindelof Post-Rapture TV Series

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11107:]]

HBO has announced they are going ahead with The Leftovers, Damon Lindelof’s TV adaptation of Tom Perrotta’s Post-Rapture novel of the same name that was originally planned for last Summer.

It’s reported by Deadline that The Leftovers has received a ten-episode order from HBO with the pilot directed by Peter Berg and co-written by Lindelof and Perrotta.

Lindelof will be the series showrunner and continue on as executive producer with Berg and Perotta; Warner Bros. TV will serve as producer.

The Leftovers follows Lindelof’s first TV series following Lost, and is stated to be about those left on the world after the Rapture takes place.

Starring in The Leftovers is Justin Theroux (Wanderlust, Parks and Recreation) and co-starring: Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Carrie Coon, Emily Meade, Amanda Warren, Ann Dowd, Michael Gaston, Max Carver, Charlie Carver, Annie Q, Paterson Joseph and Brad Leland.

The Leftovers novel is described as follows on Amazon:

What if—whoosh, right now, with no explanation—a number of us simply vanished?  Would some of us collapse? Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down?

That’s what the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, who lost many of their neighbors, friends and lovers in the event known as the Sudden Departure, have to figure out. Because nothing has been the same since it happened—not marriages, not friendships, not even the relationships between parents and children. 

Kevin Garvey, Mapleton’s new mayor, wants to speed up the healing process, to bring a sense of renewed hope and purpose to his traumatized community. Kevin’s own family has fallen apart in the wake of the disaster: his wife, Laurie, has left to join the Guilty Remnant, a homegrown cult whose members take a vow of silence; his son, Tom, is gone, too, dropping out of college to follow a sketchy prophet named Holy Wayne.  Only Kevin’s teenaged daughter, Jill, remains, and she’s definitely not the sweet “A” student she used to be.  Kevin wants to help her, but he’s distracted by his growing relationship with Nora Durst, a woman who lost her entire family on October 14th and is still reeling from the tragedy, even as she struggles to move beyond it and make a new start.

With heart, intelligence and a rare ability to illuminate the struggles inherent in ordinary lives, Tom Perrotta has written a startling, thought-provoking novel about love, connection and loss.
