As part of the TNT Influencer Network – we here at INFOtainment News are made aware of some really cool stuff happening on television. This one is going to be really REALLY big.
TNT will be premiering Steven Spielberg’s epic new television series, Falling Skies, June of 2011. The ten week television event opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. Falling Skies is about an epic battle that pits humans against the alien force that has invaded our world. Outnumbered and outmatched, its up to a group of everyday heroes to band together and triumph against a mysterious invading force.
Check out a little sneak peek below:
