Falling Skies on TV2

8:30pm Wednesday, December 28 on TV2

Noah Wyle (E.R) stars in TV2’s brand new drama series Falling Skies, premiering tonight on TV2.

Six months after a sudden, unprovoked and unexplained alien invasion, the world is in tatters. In the first few days of the invasion, the world’s power grid and technology were neutralised, the combined militaries of all the world’s countries were wiped out, and over 90% of the world’s human population was killed, leaving those remaining in a desperate fight for survival against the occupiers.

History professor Tom Mason (Wyle) has been named second in command for the Second Massachussets Militia Regiment, or 2nd Mass, and he must put all of his extensive military history knowledge into practice if the resistance movement is going to have a chance. However, he is somewhat distracted, as his real focus is on his three sons, one of whom – Ben – has been abducted by the aliens for a reason as-yet unknown.

But as Tom and the rest of the 2nd Mass will discover in tonight’s two-hour episode, the aliens aren’t the only ones they have to worry about.
