The creative minds of Friday Night Lights and Lost are teaming up.

Peter Berg, best known for showrunning Friday Night Lights and directing last year’s Battleship, will produce and direct an HBO pilot written by Damon Lindelof (Lost, Prometheus), EW has confirmed. The show is an adaptation of 2011 novel The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta, who is writing the pilot script along with Lindelof.

The Leftovers is a depiction of the Rapture (or the Sudden Departure, as the book calls it), focusing on the people of suburban Mapleton who are dealing with the disappearance of over a hundred people in their own small community. »
