If you were watching the season finale of Empire last night, then you were in luck, because Fox debuted the first trailer from executive producer M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming TV series Wayward Pines. If you didn't watch it, then you're still in luck, because we have it right here.
The new series, by writer Chad Hodge, boasts quite the impressive cast, with Matt Dillon headlining the mysterious TV series. Also starring are Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Shannyn Sossammon, Reed Diamond, Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, Hope Davis and Juliette Lewis. Below is a short series synopsis:
A Secret Service agent goes to Wayward Pines, Idaho, in search of two federal agents who have gone missing in the bucolic town. He soon learns that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.
Check out the new trailer:
Whoa, that looks great! We don't know about you, but we definitely got a bit of a Twin Peaks vibe here, mixed in with The Village (one of Shyamalan's flicks) and a couple of other TV show concepts, including the town of Woodbury from The Waking Dead. But with Terrence Howard standing in as "The Governor" instead of David Morissey. The trailer also reminds us a lot of that "Hotel California" song, you know, the one where they say: "You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave." What do you think? Do you believe Wayward Pines could be this summer's new hit TV series?
Wayward Pines will premiere on May 14 at 9/8c on FOX.
