Quiet Earth has dug up the first trailer for NBC's upcoming apocalyptic series Day One, which you can view after the jump.

Here's how the site describes the show:

Day One chronicles a global catastrophe from the perspective of the residents of a southern California apartment complex. In the wake of a mysterious event that has shattered lines of communication and (literally) changed the shape of the world, the survivors must work together to both rebuild and save the Earth from a menace that might have already consumed countless other worlds.

The trailer shows something far more sci-fi than we've been led to believe about this show, which many had thought would be along the lines of CBS' lamented Jericho.

For his part, Day One writer and producer Jesse Alexander has tweeted that the trailer, which was shown at NBC's upfront presentation to the media and advertisers in the spring, features temporary visual effects and music, but is otherwise authentic. The show is slated to debut at midseason, after the winter Olympics.
