ELSEWHERE: Damon Lindelof is Bringing the Rapture to HBO

Wired reports that Damon Lindelof (Star Trek into DarknessPrometheus, Lost) is working on a new series for HBO titled The Leftovers. Based on Tom Perrotta’s novel, the series takes place several years after the world has experienced a Rapture-like event that isn’t quite like some Christians were expecting. The show boasts a solid cast, including Christopher Eccleston and Liv Tyler, and Peter Berg directed the pilot. No word on an air date yet, but HBO has ordered 10 episodes.

    Because when you want a nuanced, thoughtful, literary adaptation, you go to director Peter “Battleship” Berg.
