Watch a sneak peek of ‘Falling Skies’ & tell us: Will YOU tune in tonight?

Aliens may not be as sexy as vampires, but we don’t think you’ll have too much trouble getting hooked on TNT’s Steven Spielberg-produced miniseries Falling Skies, which kicks off at 9 p.m. tonight with a two-hour premiere. Star Noah Wyle plays a history professor who must lead a group of survivors after a devastating alien invasion.

But the extraterrestrial series isn’t all guns and gore. Noah tells TVLine that underneath the show’s action-packed exterior is a lot of heart. Viewers will see his character grapple with themes of “fatherhood, leadership, loss [and] grief.”

And for those of you who like a little mystery with your summer TV, it sounds like Falling Skies has you covered there, too.

“The more we learn, the more we learn we don’t really know” what’s going down on Earth, Noah tells TVLine.

Watch the trailer for Falling Skies below, then drop us a comment and tell us if you’ll be watching!
