HBO's New Drama 'The Leftovers' Gets Its First Trailer

Courtesy HBO
What would happen if suddenly and randomly 2% of the population just disappeared? If you were tuning in to "Game of Thrones" on Sunday, you may have seen the trailer for the new HBO series, "The Leftovers." The drama's events take place three years after what appears to be "The Rapture" and "It's time again for the world to mourn the departed." The trailer was intense, scary, and even a little sexy. It's also NSFW thanks to language, violence and nudity.

From "Lost" co-creator and writer, Damon Lindelof and based on the Tom Perrotta novel of the same name, the series stars Jennifer Aniston's fiancĂ©, Justin Theroux as the town's chief of police who must deal with the aftermath of the "apocalypse" and the implications it brings. Also featured are; Amy Brenneman, Carrie Coon, Christopher Eccleston ("Doctor Who"), Chris Zylka, Ann Dowd, Liv Tyler, Michael Gaston, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Emily Meade, Amanda Warren and Margaret Qually. "The Leftovers" premieres on Sunday, June 29 at 10 p.m. ET.

Check out the first Season One trailer (away from any kiddos) and let us know if you'll be tuning in to see what happens in this post-apocalyptic world.
