WATCH: Teaser for Damon Lindeloff’s The Leftovers

April 7th, 2014 by Marc Comments

The Leftovers is pretty high concept idea, based on Tom Perotta’s book, it follows the survivors after two percent of the population disappear in the event the Bible calls the Rapture (em, wasn’t this the concept of This Is the End? – Ed).

And, let’s be honest, if there’s anyone who likes a bit of high concept, it’s Lost and Prometheus writer and producer Damon Lindeloff. The show itself kicks off on June 15th… consider us… enthralled

The Leftovers revolves around the Rapture and follows a group of people who are left behind in the suburban community of Mapleton. They must begin to rebuild their lives after the sudden and mysterious disappearance of more than 100 people.
Creators: Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta
Starring: Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman and Carrie Coon

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
