Något att hålla ögonen öppna efter: en ny sci-fi dramaserie från DreamWorks Television om aliens som invaderat och om hur fem överlevare kan bli mänsklighetens räddning. Piloten skrevs av Robert Rodat ("Saving Private Ryan") i samarbete med Steven Spielberg. Carl Franklin stod för regin till piloten.

"Noah Wyle stars as a former college professor who becomes the leader of a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force. Bloodgood 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) plays a fierce leader of the resistance."

Först ska jag nämna om någon annan blir lika fundersam som jag: tv-serien har bytt namn från Fallen Skies till Falling Skies. Så var det med det.


Alldeles nyss såg jag en artikel i GR där redaktionen på ComingSoon.net fått en ascool PR-grej. :thumbsup:

What is 2nd Mass? - ComingSoon.net

Moments ago, ComingSoon.net received a package marked with a logo for something called 2nd Mass containing a bubble-wrapped object with a note marked "PLAY ME".

Posted Image

Inside that was a beaten-up flipcam and a charred note that read, "You have been chosen to join the 2ndMass PRESS PLAY 2ndmass.com"

Posted Image

The website contains geographical markers pointing to a location that Google Maps indicates is in San Diego. Meanwhile, one of the website's hyperlinks contains a countdown clock that seems to indicate that something will be happening during the con.

The address on the back of the package matches that of Turner Entertainment.

UPDATE: If this is a Turner property, the most likely candidate is Fallen Skies, the new Steven Spielberg-produced series that has announced plans for Comic-Con.

Below is the video featured on the flipcam:

Några första utlåtanden av tv-serien från några som fanns på plats på Comic-Con där "Falling Skies" fanns representerade. Verkar som att de inte var alltför imponerade och jämförde med "Stargate", "Independence Day", "War of the Worlds" och "Jericho". Vad är det för fel på dem, undrar jag då? Ja, förutom den sistnämnda som gör mig en aning orolig om "Falling Skies" kan jämföras med den... <_<

TNT gives sneak of Spielberg’s ‘Falling Skies’
July 23rd, 2010

TNT's mysterious alien invasion drama produced by Steven Spielberg became a lot less mysterious by the end of its Comic-Con panel.

"Falling Skies" looks pretty ... familiar. Earth is attacked by bad guys from outer space, 80% of the population is destroyed, a ragtag group of survivors fight back.

skies TNT gives sneak of Spielbergs Falling SkiesWill post the trailer once it becomes available (which is becoming repetitive, I know, I'm frustrated too).

Basically it all looks ... yeah, familiar. "Independence Day," "War of the Worlds," "Jericho."

One storytelling item: We won't see the invasion itself (TNT has money ... but not that much money), but instead the story will begin in the aftermath. The show uses kids' drawings to depict what happened which, as low-cost solutions to showing the end of the world go, is a pretty neat one.

TNT promised "Skies" will be the "Television Event of 2011," so it's setting the bar pretty high.

What I was most reminded of, because we just saw it, was AMC's "The Walking Dead," which explores similar themes, but whose trailer was emotionally more impactful.

"These become the architects of the next Constitution," said star Noah Wylie, bearded. "If we had something hit the reset button what are the aspects we'd want to retain from the life before?"

As for what the aliens want, exec prod Mark Verheiden said, "We know what they want, and we're not going to tell you."


Comic-Con: Spielberg-Produced Falling Skies Footage Fails to Impress
July 23rd, 2010

Earlier today, I was floored by the footage of Frank Darabont’s television adaptation of the Walking Dead. Unfortunately, I wish the same could be said of what I’ve seen of the Steven Spielberg-produced Falling Skies for TNT. The show — created by Robert Rodat (screenwriter for Saving Private Ryan, and The Patriot) — stars TNT-regular Noah Wyle (ER, The Librarian) and sci-fi regular Moon Bloodgood (Journeyman, Terminator Salvation) as everyday people whose lives are overturned when aliens invade and wipe out 80 percent of humanity. Oh yah, and they fried the electrical grid as well. Fuckers.

Series writer and co-exec producer Mark Verheiden joined Bloodgood and Wyle on stage at San Diego’s Comic-Con to talk about the series and show off its first footage in a (very) short trailer. The trailer starts off with a child’s narration of the alien invasion — something that was Spielberg’s idea, according to Verheiden. We see clips of the human resistance (which looks very much like every ragtag group of resistance fighters so typical in sci-fi), a few glancing shots of the alien spaceships, and brief glimpses at the aliens themselves.

It’s certainly far too early to judge the series completely, and some of the footage may be reworked by its release next June, but I can’t help but notice how TV-like the series appears to be. The action seems on the level of a Stargate series, as do the special effects (both minuses in my book). For an invasion series with Spielberg’s pedigree, I was expecting something a bit more. It also doesn’t help that it’s chock full of many scenes so familiar to invasion stories since War of the Worlds.

But while I’m not so hot on what I’ve seen, both Wyle and Bloodgood seemed to have fallen in love with the material. Wyle mentioned that he was hesitant to get into another television project, but the strength of the pilot script convinced him that he had to be involved. He plays Tom Mason, a former Boston University professor who specialized in the American Revolution — something which makes him well versed in military strategy. His wife was killed in the initial invasion, and one of his sons was abducted by the aliens (they hinted that the aliens want to steal adolescents for some reason).

Verheiden mentioned that the series was originally called Concord — a reference to one of the first battles in the American Revolution — and that it originally had more direct parallels to that war as well. They ended up relaxing that stance to be more flexible about the direction of the series.

Bloodgood listed her (obvious) affinity for science fiction as one of the main reasons for signing on, and that she was also taken with the story of her character — a former pediatrician who lost both her husband and young child in the alien invasion. Unlike many of her previous roles, she doesn’t take up arms or kick any ass (yet). Her character instead seems to serve as a way to remind Mason and the resistance of their humanity.

I’m hoping that future footage looks better, because I’m a fan of both actors. Verheiden also mentioned that Justified writer and showrunner Graham Yost was contributing to the series, although he was somewhat vague on how exactly. At this point, it seems like he may contribute a script or two during the series’ first season. Whatever his involvement, the fact that his name is attached to the series in some fashion is enough to give me hope. For now.

Jag har inte sett Jericho eller War of the Worlds, men både Stargate och Independence Day gillade jag. Den sistnämnda skall det erkännas att jag inte sett på länge nu. Jag är fortsatt positiv iaf. :)

Om den kommeri närheten av Jericho är jag nöjd. Jericho är troligen en av de bästa skildringarna av hur det skulle se ut om en värld utvecklades till en postapokalyps. Så inte bara spännande, utan även intressant ur socialt perspektiv också.

Tror inte Falling Skies kommer nå upp dit om den jämförs med betydligt mer popcornrullar/-serier som War of world och Stargate, vilket inte har sådär jättehög kvalité.

Det här verkar faktiskt lovande av det som jag har sett. Speciellt när fokus ligger på dom mer fartfyllda scenerna i trailers och klipp. Det finns hopp om övriga beståndsdelar med, men jag hoppas att dom finputsar lite extra på manus så att det inte bara blir en fest för ögonen utan även för hjärnan. ;)

Pst. Tyvärr har trailern GaterGirl länkat till på YouTube plockats bort, men den jag länkar till är kortare så då förmodar jag att det inte är densamma.

TNT har släppt en ny trailer med bl a klipp från serien och några av skådisarna som berättar lite om den. Premiären sker söndagen 19 juni med ett två timmars avsnitt.

Trailern finns upplagd på ComingSoon.Net

In the devastating wake of an all-out invasion of the planet by an alien military force, ordinary people must do extraordinary things to survive in TNT’s powerful new series FALLING SKIES. The show stars Noah Wyle (ER) and comes to TNT from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. FALLING SKIES is slated to air over eight weeks, beginning with the two-hour premiere on Sunday, June 19, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). The show will then move into its regular Sunday 10 p.m. (ET/PT) timeslot.

FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few remaining survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery.

At the center of FALLING SKIES is Tom Mason (Wyle), a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. His wife was killed shortly after the initial attack, and one of his three sons has been taken captive by the aliens for some unknown purpose. Tom must now put his extensive knowledge of military history to the test as second in command of the 2nd Massachusetts, a regiment of resistance fighters protecting a large group of civilian survivors. They are constantly trying to gain intelligence about the aliens in order to one day outsmart and overtake them and hopefully rebuild their lives.

Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) also stars as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic upheaval in their lives. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT’s Into the West) plays Weaver, a fierce military leader of the resistance and Tom’s commanding officer.

FALLING SKIES also stars Drew Roy (Secretariat) as Hal, Tom’s oldest son and a growing fighter in the resistance movement; Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tom’s youngest son; Connor Jessup (The Saddle Club) as Ben, Tom’s son who was captured by aliens; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps Anne in the group’s makeshift medical clinic. Mpho Koaho (Rookie Blue) and Peter Shinkoda (The L Word) play Anthony and Dai, two resistance fighters in the 2nd Mass.; Colin Cunningham (Living in Your Car) is John Pope, the head of a gang of marauders; and Sarah Sanguin Carter (Shark) is Margaret, a wary survivor from Pope’s gang.

FALLING SKIES is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. The series focuses on the resilience of the survivors and their determination to maintain their humanity when all else has been destroyed. It also explores the ties that bind people together in the most difficult of circumstances, as well as the potential for humans to turn on each other when the struggle to survive threatens to give way to desperation. Through it all, there are moments of joy and happiness, including birthdays, births, humor, romance and friendship. The survivors may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit.

“One of the most intriguing aspects of FALLING SKIES is that the invasion itself has already occurred as we catch up with the human resistance,” said co-executive producer and writer Mark Verheiden. “Six months in, shock has turned to resolve as the survivors gather to form a plan of attack. The mystery of the alien plan gradually becomes clearer over the course of the season, but not in a way the human resistance could have predicted.”

The aliens in FALLING SKIES are as mysterious as they are merciless. Dubbed “skitters,” because of the way they move about on spider-like legs, the aliens are an overwhelming force. They are fast, strong, extremely intelligent and very difficult to kill. They also control captured teenagers, like Tom’s son Ben, through bio-mechanical harnesses, but the invaders have yet to reveal their ultimate plan. It becomes obvious that the harnessed teens are a vital part of the aliens’ continued dominance on Earth.

Each week the survivors discover new pieces of information about the alien force, but those discoveries often lead to more questions about the aliens’ existence and purpose. No matter what is learned about the invaders, the biggest mystery of all remains: Why are they here, and what do they want?

Det där såg ju pretty fucking bad ass ut. Lite som nya V borde ha varit. Nej, exakt som nya V borde ha varit.

Det finns förresten en serietidning som heter "Resistance" som har ungefär samma tema. Fast den utspelar sig fyra år efter invasionen just efter utomjordingarna gett sig av.
