Falling Skies Premieres on June 19th

Falling Skies

Falling Skies is an upcoming sci-fi series on the TNT television network.  The show is set during the aftermath of an attack by an alien force that leaves the Earth decimated.  Six months after the initial attack, a rag-tag band of survivor’s come together to fight back.  The newly formed, group made up of soldiers of necessity, fight to win back their planet from the alien occupation.

The show stars Noah Wyle from ER fame with executive producer Steven Spielberg bringing his magic to the small screen.  We all know Spielberg’s work but if you aren’t into medical shows, the acting of Noah Wyle may be a mystery to you.  However, if you loved the sci-fi movie Donnie Darko you might remember his small role as Professor Kenneth Monnitof (the teacher that feared losing his job for talking to Donnie about his thoughts on time).  Like most shows of this era or any other they need to bring the heat with a sexy lady.  In the case of Falling Skies you’ll get Moon Bloodgood at the head of the sexy-helm.  According to her bio “Most recently, she starred in the Warner Bros. blockbuster Terminator Salvation, opposite Christian Bale and Sam Worthington. She also appeared in a three-episode arc of the series Burn Notice.” Terminator Salvation was woefully disappointing but at least she has some experience in a sci-fi role.  What really sets the show up for success is the addition of Mark Verheiden who served as the writer on Battlestar Galactica & Heroes.  Needless to say, I’m excited for a new sci-fi series to kick off; it certainly has been a dry well as of late in the genre.   The new series is set to release on Sunday June 19th at 8/9c, stay tuned.

In the meantime, take a look at the fantastic on-air spot for Falling Skies:
