TNT’s science-fiction series Falling Skies is a satisfying blend of Jericho, V, and The Walking Dead, a post-apocalyptic drama that chronicles the aftermath of a cataclysmic, debilitating alien invasion.

Created by screenwriter Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan) and executive producer Steven Spielberg, Falling Skies is a 21st century spin on The Spirit of ’76 – an American Revolutionary War where the oppressors are extraterrestrials. In only a matter of days, the invaders neutralized our technologies and annihilated 90 percent of the world’s population, leaving only pockets of resistance to fight back.

WonderCon 2011 Video: Steven Spielberg’s ‘Falling Skies’ Panel
  |  @   |  

For those who aren’t aware, the legendary Steven Spielberg has two new TV shows on the way: one is called Terra Nova and involves dinosaurs, while the other is set after aliens have invaded our planet. The alien invasion show is called Falling Skies, and a panel was held during WonderCon 2011 this weekend to show off some clips and talk about what to expect.

The show works somewhat in the way that The Walking Dead does — taking place six months after the alien invasion, it follows humanity’s fight to survive and not the invasion itself. At the center of it all is a history professor in Boston named Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) who has extensive knowledge of military tactics, and must use this knowledge as a leader of the resistance after his wife is killed in the attacks and one of his sons taken by the extraterrestrials.

Continue on below now to check out some highlights from the Falling Skies panel. You can also head on over to TNT to read a web comic for the show and learn much more about it.

Trailer For Steven Spielberg-Produced Sci-Fi TV Series ‘Falling Skies’ Released
  |  @   |  

The first trailer for the new TNT alien invasion TV series, Falling Skies, has been released online.

The show is executive produced by none other than Steven Spielberg, and tells the story of human survivors banding together after a devastating alien attack on our planet. Nothing is the same or ever will be again, but these survivors need to find a way to work together and learn the weaknesses of the invading species so that they may fight back and rebuild civilization.

The show certainly looks like it could be a hybrid of Skyline and Spielberg’s War of the Worlds remake, but fans of sci-fi may be interested in giving it a try when Falling Skies arrives in June of 2011.

You can read a lengthy synopsis and see the trailer for yourself by clicking over now, and you can also read a companion web comic by heading over to TNT’s website.
