Noah Wylie is taking a break from The Librarian movies to settle into another television show called “Falling Skies.” The new sci-fi series will appear on TNT and is produced by Steven Spielberg (no surprise there). It has everything you’d expect: aliens, explosions, family, and desperate people. Those guys always surface when the sh*t hits the fan. Check out the trailer to see what has everyone running scared.
We’ve got to be honest, the usage of children to illustrate a scary premise really grinds our gears. As soon has we heard the child’s voice and saw the drawing we knew where this was going. What is this “V” meets “The Walking Dead?” And who knew Moon Bloodgood was in this? Between this show and Spielberg’s other series “Terra Nova” what will people tune in for? At least this show has an actual trailer.
FALLING SKIES is an exciting new series from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. Noah Wyle (ER, TNT’s The Librarian movies) stars as a former college professor who becomes the leader of a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force. Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) co-stars as Anne Glass, a therapist who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic situation. The series also stars Drew Roy (Lincoln Heights) as Hal and Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tom’s two sons; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps run the group’s commissary. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT’s Into the West) will play a recurring role as a fierce resistance fighter.
