TNT has launched a new official website for their upcoming Steven Spielberg produced alien invasion series, Falling Skies.
The series doesn’t land until June next year, but it looks like the real promotional drive begins here with the release of a companion web comic and other online features.
The site includes a 4-page Falling Skies web comic, developed by Dark Horse Comics, which provides insights into what we can expect from the series when it lands on TNT in June 2011:
A new chapter will be released every two weeks. The first chapter reveals a few interesting details:
- Six weeks after the alien attack humans still do not know what the aliens want.
- Tom’s son Ben was taken by the aliens two weeks after the attack.
- We also have a name for some of them – Skitters. This might refer to the aliens’ ‘engines of destruction’ that we found out about a few weeks ago.
- We also get a sense of Tom’s struggle to contain his eldest son’s impulse to fight the aliens on the front line.
For more insights you can watch a ‘making-of’ the comic video.
Thanks to @Falling_Skies_ for the heads-up.
Falling Skies invades TNT from June 2011.
