Steven Spielberg really does seem to have a thing for TV at the moment as Falling Skies follows in the footsteps of hit shows such as Band of Brothers and The Pacific.
But this time it’s not the second world war that is on the agenda but aliens, yes Spielberg is returning to his E.T roots – well sort of.
In Falling Skies, Wyle stars as a former college professor who becomes the leader of a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force.
Bloodgood co-stars as Anne Glass, a therapist who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic situation.
The series also stars Drew Roy (Lincoln Heights) as Hal and Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tomâ€™s two sons; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps run the groupâ€™s commissary. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNTâ€™s Into the West) plays a fierce leader of the resistance.
