'Lost' exec producer Carlton Cuse looks back at plotting the finale -- and picks TV's best goodbye

18 April 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The finale of a TV show can provoke all sorts of feelings — from devastation to elation, from closure to closed-fist anger — and Lost’s last episode has drawn the full spectrum from different factions of its deeply passionate fan base. Four years after its airing, the epic and polarizing farewell installment of ABC’s obsessed-over mystery drama about a group of plane-crash survivors on a bizarro island still has people talking/debating/clogging message boards. (Should you need a refresher and/or guidance, may we suggest (re)reading Doc Jensen’s insightful recap.) As this is the time of year »

16 April 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Sorry we're late to the plate on this one folks, but HBO dropped the first teaser trailer for The Leftovers, a new series based on the book by Tom Perrotta and developed by Damon Lindelof.

The Leftovers stars Justin Theroux and Liv Tyler, and revolved around a plot where a small but significant portion of the population have mysteriously vanished — an event that some believe could be the Rapture.

Synopsis:

Revolves around the Rapture and follows a group of people who are left behind in the suburban community of Mapleton. They must begin to rebuild their lives after the sudden and mysterious disappearance of more than 100 million people.

The Latest Teaser For The Leftovers Takes a Terrifying Turn

14 April 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Tom Perrotta's 2011 novel, The Leftovers, has a chilling and provocative subject - when a Rapture-like event claims most of the world's population, those who are left behind have to wonder what happened, and what do they do now? HBO has adapted the book into a series set to debut June 15, with Lost creator Damon Lindelof as a show-runner. The latest trailer is brief but introduces you to the radically altered world. We see a glimpse of Justin Theroux as one of the survivors, but Liv Tyler and Christopher Eccleston are also costarring. The footage is relatively benign, until the narrator says, "To depart is different than anyone supposed, and luckier," at which point a bunch of violent images flash on screen. If you read the book, pipe up: does it look like what you imagined? Watch the first teaser below. »

Watch: Justin Theroux Searches for Answers in HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Teaser

14 April 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A bright blue ribbon tied to a post and words from Walt Whitman’s poetry serve as an ominous start to the teaser for HBO’s new drama series “The Leftovers.”

Based on the bestselling novel by Tom Perrotta, the series follows police chief and father of two Kevin Garvey (played by Justin Theroux) as he tries to maintain normalcy in a world in which two percent of the population has disappeared without explanation.

While the majority of the teaser is rather calm, the intensity amps up in the final seconds, giving viewers the sense that they should expect the unexpected in a world where people vanish without a trace.

The show, exec produced by ‘Lost’ co-creator Damon Lindelof along with Perrotta and ‘Friday Night Lights’ exec producers Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey, also stars Amy BrennemanChristopher EcclestonLiv Tyler, and Ann Dowd. Lindelof, no stranger to shows about mysterious disappearances, »

'The Leftovers': Walt Whitman's words fuel latest teaser -- Video

14 April 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The latest teaser for HBO’s upcoming series The Leftovers is here, and it took a page from Breaking Bad’s book by using some of Walt Whitman’s poetry in its narration.

The Leftovers, a drama about 2 percent of the world’s population suddenly disappearing, is from Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof’s first foray back into television after the hit island-based series ended in 2010. Lindelof created the series, along with Tom Perrotta, who wrote the book — also called The Leftovers – the show is based off of.

In the teaser, a narrator reads an excerpt from Whitman’s “Song of »

‘The Leftovers’ Teaser Trailer #2: The Departed Are the Lucky Ones

14 April 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Writer/producer Damon Lindelof isn’t known for backing down from a challenge, be it trying to weave together the convoluted mythology on Lost, pontificating on the nature of creation in Prometheus, or re-introducing an iconic Star Trek villain in Star Trek Into Darkness.

His next trick? A series about the Rapture titled The Leftovers, based on the popular award-winning novel written by Tom Perrotta (author of such books-turned film adaptations as Election and Little Children). The first teaser trailer released for HBO’s Leftovers TV show (created by Lindelof) hints at how the remaining people on Earth respond in different ways, after millions of their fellow humans from around the world vanish simultaneously.

The second Leftovers teaser (see above) is more on the nose, revealing that although a number of the folk left behind seek to deal with their pain and ...

‘The Leftovers’ Aren't as Lucky as the Raptured in New Teaser for Damon Lindelof's HBO Drama (Video)

14 April 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

HBO released a new teaser trailer for Damon Lindelof's Rapture drama “The Leftovers,” and it's surprisingly optimistic — for those that mysteriously disappeared from the planet, at least. For everyone else still stuck on Earth, well, things are about to get weird. See video: A Baby Gets Raptured in Teaser Trailer For Damon Lindelof's HBO Drama ‘The Leftovers’ (Video) The new series, based on a book of the same name from author Tom Perrotta (“Little Children”), centers on the population of small town after 140 million people around the world go missing in the blink of an eye.

Watch: Justin Theroux Says the Departed are the 'Lucky' Ones in New Trailer for Damon Lindelof's 'The Leftovers'

14 April 2014 5:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While Martin Scorcese's Oscar-winning film "The Departed" dealt with many issues related to the dearly departed, I don't think they ever described them as the "lucky" departed. Not so for Damon Lindelof's new HBO series, "The Leftovers," starring Justin Theroux as one of the many citizens of Earth left behind after the Rapture. "To depart is different than anyone supposed," Theroux says in voiceover. "And luckier."  Granted, the new show from writer/executive producer Damon Lindelof ("Lost") is dealing with slightly different circumstances than Matt Damon & Co., but as they say in Bean Town, "Whose cah we takin' to the funahal?" (or something like that). The new nearly-minute long spot comes after news of the show going on a two week hiatus. With six episodes already in the can, the delay won't alter "The Leftovers'" premiere date (HBO's not giving up the plum placemet post-"Game of Thrones »

New Teaser Trailer Reveals The Leftovers

14 April 2014 1:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s an interesting premise – a TV show set after The Rapture, created by Damon Lindelof (World War Z, Star Trek Into Darkness, Lost) and Tom Perrotta (Little Children) – but these kinds of projects fail more often than they succeed, because they lack the necessary tone. If the latest teaser trailer for The Leftovers is anything to go by, however, that won’t be the case with this latest endeavour from HBO.

Starring Justin Theroux (Wanderlust), Amy Brenneman (Private Practice), Carrie Coon (Intelligence), Christopher Eccleston (Thor: The Dark World) and Liv Tyler (Robot And Frank), The Leftovers is a brand new drama that focuses on the small American town of Mapleton after a large-scale disappearance. The trailer sets a mournful scene, as residents of this suburban community struggle to deal with the vanishing of over 100 people.

Watch: There Is Really No Death In New Teaser For HBO's 'The Leftovers'

13 April 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Damon Lindelof sure does like his stories about people who go missing. In addition to "Lost," with its chronicling the lives of those who vanished on Oceanic Airlines Flight 815, the producer/writer returns to the world of the vanished with "The Leftovers," coming this summer from HBO. And a new teaser is here hoping to get you hooked. Starring Justin TherouxLiv TylerChristopher EcclestonAmy BrennemanMichael Gaston and Ann Dowd, and based on the book by Tom Perotta, the story follows a Rapture-like event that sees whole swaths of humanity summoned up to heaven...or were they? That's the question Lindelof will try to answer (hopefully satisfactorily) in the new show, which seems to fuse a similar formula of the dramatic and supernatural in its approach to the central tale. But, before we get too excited, we'll approach with caution. "The Leftovers" debuts on June 15th at 10 Pm. »

He even got some positive responses from the Lds. Just coming out to one person last year helped him. “When I heard this loving congratulations, it flipped my world around.” He does say that he’s deleted all his gay dating apps from his phone because he fears naked pictures getting out. His app of choice? Growlr.

7 April 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How excited you are for HBO’s upcoming series The Leftovers probably depends on how much you like Damon Lindelof. The Lost co-creator and showrunner has had a hand in several high profile genre projects since his pop culture phenomenon ended, deciding to take his talents to the big screen for films like Star Trek, Cowboys & Aliens, and PrometheusThe Leftovers marks his much-anticipated return to television though, and audiences are definitely curious about it.

The series debuts on June 15th and focuses on those in a suburban community who are left behind after the Rapture summons 2% of the world’s population to heaven. It’s an intriguing supernatural premise that offers opportunities for some great character-driven drama (and plenty of twists and turns), so Lindelof should feel right at home with the material. As an enormous fan of Lost and most of the writer’s work, I’m incredibly »
