Science fiction thriller buffs, get ready for lots of action in January 2012! That’s when Steven Spielberg’s new science fiction thriller series Falling Skies premieres on OSN FIRST and OSN FIRST HD. And we’ve got more on it!
Opening in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has destroyed most of the world, Falling Skies centres on Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. Tom’s wife was killed soon after the initial attack, and one of his three sons has been taken captive by the aliens for an unknown purpose.
The professor has to put his extensive knowledge of military history to the test as second in command of the 2nd Massachusetts, a regiment of resistance fighters protecting a large group of civilian survivors. They are constantly trying to gain intelligence about the aliens in order to one day outsmart and overtake them and rebuild their lives.
Expect the emotion, adventure and celebration of human spirit that is Spielberg’s trademark with this show. We know we’ll be tuning in!
INFO: Falling Skies will have its premiere at 9pm (UAE time) on 11 January 2012 on OSN.
