TNT has a new science fiction drama series planned for 2011. Â Falling Skies has Steven Spielberg as its producer and Noah Wyle and Moon Bloodgood as its stars. Â The series will be about aliens, which seems to be another major theme for Hollywood lately, along with vampires.
What's the Show About & What Are the Aliens' Motives?
Mark Verheiden, writer for the series, has said that even though they know why the aliens invaded, it won't be revealed right away. Â "These aliens have a plan, but it's a slowly unfolding plan...But I think we can be sure that there's meaning behind what they're doing, and what they're doing is very strange." Â So what exactly is the show about? Â It's about a group of people who are still alive after the apocalypse hit when aliens invaded. Â They "go up against overwhelming odds and find great heroism inside themselves and still hold on to their families. Â A key note of the show is not losing what made you human," Verheiden explained. Â It sounds like it could make for a good series, if done right, and it will be nice to see Noah Wyle return to television after ER.
What do you think of this news? Â Will you check out Falling Skies next year on TNT?
