If you missed the series premiere of HBO’s The Leftovers, the episode is currently available on Yahoo! Screen through July 6. Based on the book by Tom Perotta (Little Children) and produced by Lost Emmy winner Damon Lindelof, the series centers on the denizens of a suburb named Mapleton.
Three years ago, a tragic global event nicknamed “The Sudden Departure” led to the disappearance of 2 percent of the population. The Leftovers deals with how a community handles the seeming good news when some of the missing persons return to their loved ones. Justin Theroux stars in the series as Kevin Garvey, a chief of police and father of two who tries to bring a bit of semblance into the town in the wake of this inexplicable and tragic event.
