You’ll hear more about Falling Skies by the end of the weekend, but a very interesting package arrived today. Inside was a satchel…and inside that was a newspaper – well, the front page of the “Boston News”, proclaiming that “WE ARE NOT ALONE!” and that massive ships have appeared over major cities. Sounds like the beginning of many movies – but this is just the very beginning for the upcoming Falling Skies series on TNT, from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. Also inside was a DVD case that looks like what I’d expect from an “ultimate platinum collector’s edition” DVD release with the pilot and another episode, and even a guide to the characters.
On the satchel was also a placard, which on the back reads, “If you had to start over, what would you bring?”
Falling Skies will air over 8 weeks, starting with the two-hour premiere on June 19th at 9PM ET/PT.
Expect some insight into the series soon…but no spoilers. Update: You can now read our First Look at Falling Skies article.
