“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.
