Falling Skies, Noah WyleNoah Wyle, meet aliens. The first trailer for Steven Spielberg and TNT's summer series 'Falling Skies' has hit the web.

Set after an alien invasion, Wyle stars as Tom Mason, a history professor who becomes a leader of the human resistance. A widower thanks to the invasion, the character goes after his captured son while trying to protect his other two boys.

Spielberg and Dreamworks Television are executive producing the project, which is written by 'Saving Private Ryan' scribe Robert Rodat. The series begins in June 2011.

With the pedigree involved, TNT could have a big hit on its hands. There's certainly alien fans out there, look at 'V' on ABC. It failed to capture a mass audience, but managed to attract enough of a niche one to keep it around for a second season.

By the end of the first minute of trailer we know this will be total crap.

If it is produced as well as the Taken series, I'm in!

This just feels very...yawn. Maybe the show is better than the trailer?

It's also seems to be "inspired by" 'The Way of the Pilgrim' by Gordon Dickson. Which is a ripping yarn, btw.

It's V meets War of the Worlds.

Yeah, no, Noah Wyle hasn't been able to get out of the E.R shadow. Somehow he hasn't found the right role. Everything he has been in just bombs. And this doesn't look any better. And I like Science Fiction; too bad.
