With its 10-year anniversary panel at PaleyFest 2014, 'LOST' has entered the pop culture conversation for the first time in nearly four years. For some, it's just another chance to talk about one of the most popular (and weird) TV shows to ever play to mainstream audiences. For others, it's like having old scars torn open, like an abusive former lover who has shown back up in your life.
It's been almost 10 full years since the opening of ABC's 'LOST' saw the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 marooned upon the shores of a mysterious island, whose various challenges forced them into a mantra of "live together, die alone." While six seasons and an epic finale may not have answered every question raised by inquisitive fans, the majority of the cast all gathered at Sunday's PaleyFest reunion panel to celebrate the magic (and insanity) that was 'LOST.'
The HBO year-ahead trailer that showed us our first look at 'Game of Thrones' season 4 also afforded a few brief snippets of 'LOST' creator Damon Lindelof's TV return in upcoming drama 'The Leftovers,' though the footage proved fleeting. Now, we've got our first official photo of lead actor Justin Theroux, as well as a few new details from Lindelof himself on the series and why it won't draw any 'LOST' comparisons.
It's been a good long while since we've heard from HBO's forthcoming Damon Lindelof-helmed pilot 'The Leftovers,' but thankfully the premium cable rapture hasn't left us behind. HBO has officially ordered the Liv Tyler-Justin Theroux starring drama to series, the deal marking the network's first major production with an outside studio, but when might fans expect to see 'The Leftovers' on their plate?
HBO's upcoming Damon Lindelof-helmed pilot 'The Leftovers' has wasted little time in rapturing additional cast members, following last week's notable acquisition of Liv Tyler. The latest to join the cast are 'Private Practice' vet Amy Brenneman and 'Fringe' star Emily Meade, but what new roles will they take, and how long before we can expect to see the pilot itself?
Though still only in the pilot stages, HBO's forthcoming Damon Lindelof-produced adaptation of 'The Leftovers' has added yet another prolific star to its cast, as it's signed Liv Tyler for a regular role. She joins a cast that includes Justin Theroux, former 'Doctor Who' Christopher Eccleston and more, but who will the Aerosmith daughter play in her first major TV role?
We've heard plenty about 'LOST' veteran Damon Lindelof's upcoming HBO rapture drama, 'The Leftovers,' based on 2011's Tom Perotta book of the same name, but little in the way of casting or shooting. Now Mr. Jennifer Aniston himself, Justin Theroux, has joined in a leading role, but what's the new religious series all about?
There have been a lot of complaints about 'Star Trek Into Darkness' since the film opened, one of them from female fans who felt that having character Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) strip down to her bra and panties for no apparent reason was sexist. The complaints became too much for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' writer/producer Damon Lindelof who finally admitted the shot was "gratuitous" and "unnecessary."
Do you agree?
Whatever the "Justice League problem" means to you, Lord knows there is one. Warner Bros. was originally set on the idea of bringing this team of DC heroes to the big screen, but has since faltered and are now relying on whether the upcoming 'Man of Steel' succeeds or not to make that decision for them. Still there are many concerns from fans and execs alike about realizing this particular set of characters, but could one of the top working writers of the day, Damon Lindelof, have a solution?
Former 'LOST' showrunner Carlton Cuse has certainly found his next success in A&E's 'Psycho' prequel drama 'Bates Motel,' but will Damon Lindelof share the same success with his upcoming HBO pilot 'The Leftovers'? With the pilot soon to go before cameras, 'Friday Night Lights' helmer Peter Berg has signed on to direct and produce the rapturous new series, but will 'The Leftovers' prove to be a satisfying course?
