Peter Berg TV Shows

Rob Corrdry, Omar Benson Miller, John David Washington, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, and Arielle Kebble also star.

When 2% of the world’s population abruptly disappears without explanation, the world struggles to come to terms with what happened. Three years later, THE LEFTOVERS is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut.
Created by Damon Lindelof (Emmy® winner for “Lost”) and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta (Academy Award® nominee for “Little Children”; “Election”), the new HBO drama series THE LEFTOVERS kicks off its ten-episode season SUNDAY, JUNE 29 (10:00-11:15 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Lindelof and Perrotta executive produce the series along with Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey; Ron Yerxa and Albert Berger co-executive produce; Lindelof serves as showrunner. The series is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Based on Perrotta’s bestselling novel of the same name, THE LEFTOVERS is an original look at The Rapture…or was it The Rapture at all? Set in a small New York suburb, the intimate family drama focuses on the residents of the fictional town of Mapleton, whose preconceptions are shattered in the wake of a global event dubbed “The Sudden Departure.” Three years after the fateful day when 140 million people disappeared without a trace, the series focuses on the ways ordinary people react to inexplicable events that can unite or divide families and communities, examining how their untold grief and the strain of an unprecedented calamity can turn faith into cynicism, paranoia, madness or cult-like fanaticism.
At the heart of THE LEFTOVERS is the Garvey family. Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), the town’s beleaguered chief of police and father of two, is trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy when the notion no longer applies. While Kevin and his rebellious daughter, Jill (Margaret Qualley), try to go back to the way things used to be, Kevin’s son, Tom (Chris Zylka), sees the event as a wakeup call to take action. At the same time, Kevin is faced with the conflict between the townspeople of Mapleton and the Guilty Remnant, a mysterious cult-like group that seems to offer an escape for traumatized residents.
In addition to Theroux (“Mulholland Drive”; HBO’s “John Adams” and “Six Feet Under”), series regulars include: Amy Brenneman (“Private Practice”) as Laurie, a mother with a successful career who felt all she could do after the Departure was surrender; Christopher Eccleston (“28 Days Later”) as Reverend Matt Jamison, who thinks he knows exactly what the Departure was and wasn’t, and is committed to renewing the town’s faith; Liv Tyler (“The Lord of the Rings”) as Meg, who has serious doubts about her impending wedding; Chris Zylka (“The Amazing Spider-Man”) as Tom Garvey; Margaret Qualley as Jill Garvey; Carrie Coon (“Gone Girl”) as Nora Durst, who lost her entire family in the Departure; Emily Meade (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) as Aimee, Jill’s friend and the big sister she never had; Amanda Warren (“The Adjustment Bureau”) as Mayor Lucy Warburton; Ann Dowd (HBO’s “True Detective”) as Patti, a Guilty Remnant leader; Michael Gaston (“The Mentalist”) as Dean, a stranger who could be Kevin’s greatest ally, or a force to be reckoned with; Max and Charlie Carver (“Teen Wolf”) as Adam and Scott Frost, twins who forge a friendship with Jill and Aimee; and Annie Q (“The Rewrite”) as Christine, a follower of Holy Wayne and object of Tom’s interest.

The series draws on the experiences of industry insiders to illustrate both the heady excesses of today's celebrity lifestyle, as well as the difficulty of finding love and success in the fast track of show biz. Now that the boys are getting used to the perks of stardom, Eric, along with superagent Ari, keep Vince's star rising while making sound decisions for a long-lasting career in a world of fleeting fame.
In the small town of Dillon, Texas, football is everything. The team to beat is the Panthers, who are coached by newbie Eric Taylor.

Fallen Angels was a neo-noir anthology television series set in somber Los Angeles right after World War II and before the election of president John F. Kennedy. In Europe the show was known as Perfect Crimes. The program ran during 1993-1995 on the Showtime pay-cable station.

The series was produced using top-notch directors, well-known hard-boiled fiction writers, screenplay masters, inventive cinematographers, and first-rate actors. In addition, the art direction gave the series the ambiance and historical look required of a show devoted to noir set in Los Angeles. The ensemble group of craftswomen and craftsmen took a turn each week at the helm to produce many, many memorable episodes and a visually stunning series. Each episode began with a cool and restra

21 Jump Street was an hour-long action/drama series that ran officially from 1987 until 1991. In total, five seasons were made, and the show was canceled in 1991 due to low ratings. Most of the original cast (Hanson, Ioki, and Penhall) had already left by then, leaving behind only Hoffs and Fuller, alongside a few new faces. The show is most famous for rocketing actor Johnny Depp to fame. 21 Jump Street was about a group of under-age looking cops who went undercover on high schools to catch young criminals before they become older, more dangerous criminals. In later seasons, the team went less and less undercover on high schools, and the plots focused more on the cops' personal lives.
