Damon Lindelof, co-creator of “Lost,” teams with Tom Perrotta on “The Leftovers”
If it ever gets made, HBO’s adaptation of Tom Perrotta’s “The Leftovers” might be worth watching. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Damon Lindelof, co-creator of “Lost,” has been enlisted to co-write the project with Perrotta, who will executive produce with Ron Yerxa and Albert Berger. Published last year, the novel by the Belmont author is about a group of suburbanites left behind after the Rapture. If the pilot is picked up, Lindelof, who also co-wrote “Prometheus” and the upcoming “Star Trek” sequel, would serve as showrunner for the HBO series.
