The Leftovers

On September 29, 2014

This one-hour HBO drama focuses on a suburban town whose preconceptions are shattered in the wake of a global event dubbed “The Departure”, in which some people were taken and others left behind.

Based on the bestselling 2011 novel by Tom Perrotta, The Leftovers begins three years after the fateful October 14 day when 140 million people – 2% of the world’s population – disappeared without a trace. Seen primarily through the eyes of father of two and police chief Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), the series shows how ordinary people react to inexplicable events that can unite or divide families and communities, revealing how the strain of an unprecedented calamity can turn people’s faith into cynicism, paranoia, madness, or cult-like fanaticism.

The series is created by Damon Lindelof, co-creator of the hit series Lost, and author Tom Perrotta. It premieres on Foxtel Showcase on Tuesday 14th October at 8.30pm.
