HBO has ordered ten episodes of The Leftovers, a new series developed by Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness writer, Damon Lindelof. The show will follow the after effects of the Rapture on those who are still left on Earth. The main focus will be that those who are left don’t understand what happened to take family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers away. The series is based on the novel by Tom Perotta, who is writing and producing with Lindelof. The pilot episode was directed by Peter Berg with Justin Theroux in the lead role. The series is expected to premiere sometime in 2014.
