You’ve seen the pictures, now here’s the first trailer for TNT’s new sci-fi series “Falling Skies”, which stars Noah Wylie of “ER” fame as a college professor turned resistance leader who takes to the hills to escape the invading alien horde. The trailer isn’t exactly great stuff in terms of quality video, but hey, seeing as how this show has been hidden away by TNT for what seems like forever, it’s something.
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.
