According to a TNT press release, Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Leverage) will host 2nd Watch, which is set to launch with a live premiere episode Sunday, June 17, at 11 p.m. (ET), after the two-hour East Coast season premiere of Falling Skies.

Airing over nine weeks, 2nd Watch is slated to feature such Falling Skies cast members as Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Sanguine Carter, Mpho Koaho and Peter Shinkoda, as well as executive producers Remi Aubuchon and Greg Beeman, consulting producer/writer Mark Verheiden and producer/writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle.

The move is similar in nature to Talking Dead, the chat show that aired on AMC after The Walking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick.
