THE LEFTOVERS (HBO, New!) - "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof is spearheading a small screen take on Tom Perrotta's 2011 book of the same name, which asks what would happen if The Rapture actually took place and millions of people just disappeared from the Earth. Stephen King heralded the novel in the New York Times Book Review as "the best 'Twilight Zone' episode you never saw." Lindelof will co-write the script to the potential drama alongside Perrotta and executive produce via his overall deal with Warner Bros. Television. Ron Yerxa and Albert Berger also serve as executive producers. (Deadline.com)
