Wired reports that Damon Lindelof (Star Trek into DarknessPrometheus, Lost) is working on a new series for HBO titled The Leftovers. Based on Tom Perrotta’s novel, the series takes place several years after the world has experienced a Rapture-like event that isn’t quite like some Christians were expecting.
