Falling Skies - TNT

Premiers Sunday June 19th, at 9pm est

opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few 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 work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force.

At the center of the series is Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. His wife was killed in the initial attack, and one of his three sons has been captured. Determined to get his son back and to ensure the safety of his other two sons, Tom must put his extensive knowledge of military history to the test as one of the leaders of the resistance movement known as the 2nd Mass, because of their location in Boston, Mass. They are constantly trying to gain intelligence about the aliens in order to one day outsmart and overtake them and hopefully rebuild their lives.

Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) co-stars as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic upheaval in their lives. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT's Into the West) plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver. The series also stars Drew Roy (Secretariat) as Hal, Tom's oldest son and a growing fighter in the resistance movement; Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tom's youngest son; Connor Jessup (The Saddle Club) as Ben, Tom's son who was captured by aliens; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps Anne in the group's makeshift medical clinic. Colin Cunningham (Living in Your Car) is John Pope, the leader of an outlaw motorcycle gang and Sarah Carter (Shark) is Margaret, a wary survivor of Pope's gang.

FALLING SKIES focuses on the resilience of the survivors and their determination to maintain their humanity when all else has been destroyed. It is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. They may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. Most of all, the series is about the ties that bind people together in the most difficult of circumstances.

The aliens in the series are mighty, mysterious and merciless. They are highly intelligent and use military-like tactics, which makes them an overwhelming force against the 2nd Mass. There are two types of aliens that the human survivors have named Skitters and Mechs. Combining live action and special visual effects, the Skitters have spider-like bodies and incredible strength and agility. The deadly, robotic Mechs stand upright and can shoot bullets from their arms. The aliens control captured children, like Tom's son Ben, through bio-mechanical harnesses but have yet to reveal their ultimate plan for them.

FALLING SKIES is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, along with DreamWorks Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, Graham Yost (Justified, The Pacific) and screenwriter Robert Rodat. Rodat, who earned an Oscar® nomination for his screenplay for Saving Private Ryan, wrote the pilot from an idea he co-conceived with Spielberg. Mark Verheiden (Heroes, Battlestar Galactica) and Greg Beeman (Heroes, Smallville) are co-executive producers. The pilot was directed by Carl Franklin (One False Move, Out of Time).

Re: Falling Skies - TNT

Having just seen the ads before, I wasn't sure about checking it out. Now that I got some more info, I think that I'll be checking it out and try giving it a fair shake. Thanks for the intel.

Re: Falling Skies - TNT

I'm going to give it a shot, but am wary of a big budget show on TNT. Could be a bit daunting unless ratings soar. Sounds like a cross between Matrix and The Road.

Re: Falling Skies - TNT

Every single show that I invest time in gets cancelled, so merlin may be on to something! If I proclaim loudly enough that I ahte a show and it sucks it is guaranteed at least six seasons. LOL

Flashforward, Farscape, Jericho, The Event, CHAOS, Persons Unknown, Firefly, SGU. So many good shows with potential that barely made a dent.

Re: Falling Skies - TNT

My favorite show on cable ( the Military channel I believe ) was Special Operations Missions. For those not familiar with the show, one lone operator was pitted against an opfor of four to six opponents. All participants were former members of highly trained elite US military units. Different scenarios were set up, and using simunition these two forces each tried to complete their mission while stopping the other from completing theirs. The show only ran for one season, but what a season. Our hero (Will Willis) only got "tagged" once and completed all the missions he was assigned. The show was very interesting, by using the tactics, equipment and ingenuity used by our military, the show proved that one man can make a difference.

Re: Falling Skies - TNT

I was so glad they did the Peacekeeper Wars mini-series wrap up though! It was the first time I have been able to get some kind of closure when one of my beloved scifi shows has been prematurely canceled. Not as good as another season, but at least they were able to tie up loose plot lines. Unlike some shows *cough*Sliders*cough*.

Re: Falling Skies - TNT

So I actually stayed up past my bedtime and watched "Falling Skies". I would have to say that I'm on the fence at this point. I can see the potential, but it certainly didn't wow me right off the bat. I do like the conflict between which takes precedence, the fighters or the civvies. The bang bang shoot'im up stuff is always good of course. A grace period of a few more shows will be granted before I render a final a final verdict.

Re: Falling Skies - TNT

Had to wait for the re-air to see it. Stormy weather & satellite TV don't mix.

How many different discontinued shows were they trying to incorporate in that episode?
