Here are the details:
The debut date for THE LEFTOVERS has changed. The series begins its ten-episode season SUNDAY, JUNE 29 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on HBO (not June 15, as originally announced).
From Damon Lindelof (Emmy(R) winner for “Lost”) and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta (Academy Award(R) nominee for “Little Children”), THE LEFTOVERS is based on Perrotta’s bestselling novel of the same name.
