When 2% of the world’s population abruptly disappears without explanation, the world struggles to come to terms with what happened.
Based on the best-selling novel by Tom Perrotta, HBO’s new drama THE LEFTOVERS, takes a look at what happens after 140 million people suddenly vanish off the face of the planet and how the rest of the population – the leftovers – struggle to continue on with their lives. Was it the “Rapture?” Was it a government conspiracy? Was it something else altogether? The show comes from LOST’s Damon Lindelof, who is serving as co-creator (with Perrotta) executive producer, and showrunner. We expect Lindelof to provide us with more intriguing questions and possibly some answers throughout his new series.
“The Leftovers” premieres Sunday, June 29th at 10 p.m. on HBO.
