TNT and Little Orbit Partner to Develop "Falling Skies" Video Games

Popular TNT Sci-Fi Show Leaps into Gaming World via Little Orbit

Survival of the human race is at stake. TNT and worldwide video game publisher Little Orbit today announced a partnership to bring the epic alien-invasion television series Falling Skies to multiple video game consoles. Depicting a world gone mad after an alien invasion, the Falling Skies video games will grab a foothold in the gaming world with a mobile game due out this holiday and multiple consoles launching in 2014. Falling Skies is based on the popular TNT show of the same name and will tie directly into the television series, with a scenario that will weave itself into the existing universe and feature voice work by the show's actors.

"Little Orbit's mission is to identify high-quality licenses and bring their world to gamers in a truly unique and interactive experience," said Matt Scott, president of Little Orbit. "We are collaborating closely with the show's own writers to craft the game's storyline, wholly integrating the Falling Skies universe into a visceral gaming experience."

Created by DreamWorks Television, TNT Productions and executive producer Steven Spielberg, Falling Skies takes place in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the months since the initial invasion, the few survivors have banded together to begin the difficult task of fighting back and rebuilding their lives. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency against the occupying alien force. But the battle is just getting started.

"Each summer, Falling Skies has drawn viewers into its fantastic tale of survival in the face of a catastrophic alien invasion," said Tricia Melton, Senior Vice President of Entertainment Marketing and Branding for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "Through the new line of games from Little Orbit, fans will be able to immerse themselves in the Falling Skies universe all year round."

One of basic cable's Top 5 summer drama among key adult demos, Falling Skies has averaged 5.4 million viewers, 2.8 million adults 25-54 and 2.5 million adults 18-49 for its just-completed third season on TNT. Little Orbit will be releasing an iOS title within the Falling Skies world this holiday season, with a console game planned for late 2014.

Fans of the show can watch for exclusive media, including screen shots and artwork, on the official Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/fallingskies and will be able to visit the official game website soon.
