Based on Tom Perrotta’s book, the project is set after the Rapture and tells the story of those folks who didn’t quite make the cut.

Justin Theroux ( Six Feet Under, Sex and the City ) stars as police chief Kevin Garvey, a father of two who is trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy in a world that is starting to completely reject that notion.

Tyler — whose film credits include Armageddon, That Thing You Do! and Empire Records — will play Meg, a  woman on the verge of getting married, but needing an escape. As a result, she becomes targeted by an enigmatic cult for recruitment.

Lindelof co-wrote the pilot with Perrotta and both will serve as exec producers. Friday Night Lights’ Peter Berg is on board to direct.
