Steven Spielberg and TNT unleash “Falling Skies” with a two-hour series premiere on June 19. This new show depicts humanity fighting back against aliens who have invaded and now occupy planet Earth. Check out the new trailer and more info below.
“Falling Skies” opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. The few remaining survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers engage in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery. “Falling Skies” is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. The survivors may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. The series combines stunning visual effects and personal human stories about triumph and survival in the most devastating circumstances.
Noah Wyle stars as Tom Mason, a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. Moon Bloodgood plays Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the survivors. Will Patton plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver. And Drew Roy stars as Mason’s eldest son and fellow- fighter, Hal. “Falling Skies” comes to TNT from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg.
