Up until seeing this trailer for HBO's dramatic new series The Leftovers, I had assumed the storyline revolved around Justin Theroux taking down an entire lasagna over four days. I was wrong.

Based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, The Leftovers imagines a world where 2% of the population simply vanish, leaving everyone else to grieve and contemplate their own existence. Damon Lindelof is helming the series and it looks to be fitting material for him. After all, he did allow so many mysteries and plot points to simply vanish from LOST.
