Liv Tyler, The Ninth Doctor And A Host Of Other Pretty People Are In For Damon Lindelof's New HBO Show

Say what you will about Damon Lindelof (I know, you’ve said plenty), but the man is partially responsible for one of the most engrossing and talked about TV shows in recent memory so I am at least curious to see what he does with his own HBO series. He’s been given the green light for a 10 episode season of The Leftovers. Adapted from Tom Perotta’s novel of the same name, the series will follow the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, a formerly comfortable suburban community that lost over a hundred people in the “Sudden Departure” (aka rapture). So we’re dealing with the supernatural which, you’ll agree, is Lindelof’s wheelhouse. (A wheelhouse that’s sometimes built entirely out of penis-vagina monsters.)

Does it sounds a little Under The Dome-y for your taste? The cast, at least, is something to cheer for. Joining Liv Tyler and Christopher Eccleston are Justin Theroux and Amy Brenneman and the pilot was directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights). So, what do you think? Are you excited or did you leave your heart in the Unitarian Universalist chapel in the sky?
