TV Trailers: The Leftovers (2014)

Last night HBO released the full-length trailer for Damon Lindelof's new show The Leftovers. Based on a book by Tom Perotta, it deals with the events that take place after 2% of the world's population disappears. It's an interesting concept and a bit of a shift from what you normally see in movies or tv shows which deal with this sort of rapture premise. My only hope is that they don't go for a 7-10 seasons model, but instead follow a more British model and keep it short at around 2-3. A premise like this can only work for so long before devolving into a generic cop/cult/soap drama, so I hope they manage to end it while they're still ahead. God, that's so critical of me - the show hasn't even aired yet and I'm thinking 10 years into the future? Ha.
