Damon Lindelof to Adapt Tom Perrotta’s The Leftovers For TV

Tom Perrotta’s speculative novel a post-rapture world is headed for television. Co-writer of Lost, Star Trek (09), and Prometheus, Damon Lindelof says the concept of the book is “firing all my creative pistons in a way they haven’t been fired since Lost.” No word on when the show is set for debut, but when it does it will be on HBO.

I wonder how Lindelof will manage to add in some bad science to this. Red Matter, all that is wrong with Prometheus. Lost, which lost it's way. The only thing I don't understand is how anyone can actually think this man can write a decent plot. A creative drunk with twists and turns he can't resolve combined with an anti-science god fetish (and religion need not trash science is its desire for meaning). Frankly, I love Perotta's work. Humor and meaning intertwined. But Lindelof will make it weaker. Even with the religious aspects of "The Leftovers".
