“Falling Skies” Reaches out to Non-Sci-Fi Fans!
You’ve got a new Sci-Fi show about to premiere. You know Sci-Fi fans are gonna look in. So what do you do? Appeal to non-Sci-Fi fans. And, with the premiere less than week away, that’s just what the producers and stars of TNT’s “Falling Skies” are doing. Executive Producer Mark Verheiden told The Hollywood Reporter:
It’s not about the invasion – it’s about the resistance … It’s about finding hope in an otherwise hopeless situation.
While star Noah Wyle said:
Our show walks a really interesting line between being a character-based drama and being a sci-fi show … It’s not really one or the other but has a little something for both.
We appreciate what they’re trying to do. They want big numbers for the premiere. But, frankly, it’s Sci-Fi fans are gonna make or break this show.
