As you would imagine, normalcy takes a detour in a typical suburban town after 2% of the world's population vanishes without explanation. Or maybe you can’t imagine, which is why an incredible creative team is bringing you The Leftovers, HBO's new drama series. It’s based on the bestselling novel of the same name by  Tom Perrotta (who also wrote Election and Little Children), who is also the series co-writer; written and executive produced  by Damon Lindelof, co-creator of Lost; and directed by Peter Berg, whose many cinematic and television credits include executive producing Friday Night Lights.

The Leftovers premieres Sunday, June 29, only on HBO.
