Falling Skies Preview: "Stark and Compelling Drama"

Falling Skies is poised to be one of summer's mega-hits, and TNT is showing you exactly why in this tantalizing trailer from the Steven Spielberg produced alien invasion epic. The series is set to launch with a two-hour premiere Sunday, June 19, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), before moving into its regular timeslot of Sundays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

Falling Skies opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. 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 engage in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery. FALLING SKIES is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. The survivors may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. The series combines stunning visual effects and personal human stories about triumph and survival in the most devastating circumstances.
