Noah Wyle Previews FALLING SKIES

June 19, 2011 by  

FALLING SKIES, TNT’s latest original series, debuts tonight at 9 PM and while, yes, it’s a science-fiction show set in a post-alien invasion world, the heart of this series is the people who are struggling to get by.

According to a network press release, “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.”

TNT is pulling out all the stops to promote the show, and chances are if you’ve watched television, read a magazine or passed by bus stops in recent weeks, you’ve seen a ton of advertisements for it.

“It’s one of the things that TNT does better than most — their marketing strategy,” series star Noah Wyle (Tom) recently noted to reporters. “It’s very target specific. They know exactly why they wanted this show and they know exactly who they want to attract to this show and that’s who they’re going after. It’s very gratifying to everyone involved that they’re giving us this vote of confidence.”

TNT’s confidence in the series is so high that there were whispers the show might be renewed for a second season before the pilot even aired. While executive producer Mark Verheiden couldn’t confirm an early renewal, he did admit that the writers have started thinking about potential storylines for next season so they can “hit the ground running” if the show does get picked up.

But given that we have all of season one to enjoy, what can fans expect from the episodes to come?

“The first half [of the season], we’re on the run, splitting into smaller and smaller groups, which are being easily targeted,” Wyle explained. “It’s a new game plan off the bat — we’re going to do something we haven’t done before, because now we’re going to run, we’re going to hide, we’re going to scavenge, we’re going to try and survive with the hopes that through doing that, we’re going to learn little pieces of information where we can get to a place where we can take a break and think for a second. And we might be able to fuse this all into a strategy and figure out how to turn the tables [on the aliens].”
