New Television Spot for Steven Spielberg-Produced Alien Invasion Series FALLING SKIES

     February 21, 2011


TNT has unveiled a new television spot for its alien invasion drama Falling Skies. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the series stars Noah Wyle as a former university professor and father who has taken up the leadership role in a resistance faction made up of soldiers and civilians alike. In addition to Wyle, Falling Skies also stars Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Will Patton, and Drew Roy.

As you’ll be able to see throughout the promo, Falling Skies is set to premiere on TNT this June. While I can’t say I’m waiting on pins-and-needles for the series, Steven Weber’s line about how some of the survivors of the alien invasion’s “first wave” believe it is proof that they are “the best of mankind” has me interested in the human dynamic of the series. With this in mind, hit the jump to check out the new spot as well as each of the previous promos for the series.
