Based on the book of the same name by Tom Perotta, we get a peek at Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof’s foray into the unexplained with HBO’s The Leftovers. The drama focuses on the aftermath of a Rapture-like event that has caused the disappearances of 140 million people around the globe. While everyone is alarmed, it actually accounts for only 2% of the population so life continues to “go on.” Justin Theroux leads the cast as Kevin Garvey, the local chief of police and a father of two, who tries to maintain a normal life, while Liv Tyler is a woman who is recruited by a cult just as she is about to be married. The Leftovers kicks off its 10-episode first season on Sunday, June 15.
