FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. At the center of the series is Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), a Boston history professor whose family was torn apart. Tom must put his extensive knowledge of military history to the test as one of the leaders of the Boston-born resistance movement known as the 2nd Mass. Joining him are Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) as Anne Glass, who becomes the primary medic of the 2nd Mass, and Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT’s Into the West) as a fierce leader of the resistance, Captain Weaver. It is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes.
