The Rapture Sucks for The Leftovers
Truth be told, all religions kind of freak me out. Don't get me wrong - believe whatever you need to believe to get you through the day. More power to you even. When the Rapture does come and you go poof into thin air, I'll be sure to feed your pets and check in on your bank accounts.
Deadline reports that Damon Lindelof is heading to HBO for "The Leftovers", based on Tom Perrotta’s 2011 book, which the two will co-write together. This marks the first foray into cable for the "Lost" executive producer/co-showrunner and the first project under the rich three-year overall deal he recently signed with Warner Bros TV.
"The Leftovers," produced by HBO in association with WBTV, takes place after the Rapture happens but not quite like it’s supposed to. It is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut… and a world that will never be the same. Lindelof and Perrotta will co-write the script and executive produce the project, now in development, with Ron Yerxa and Albert Berger. If "The Leftovers" moves forward, Lindelof will serve as the showrunner.
