La Brea is a new NBC genre series coming this fall. The first posters were released the other day, and a more concrete trailer is expected soon, considering that we have already had the opportunity to see a short teaser. The creator of the series, screenwriter, showrunner and executive producer is David Appelbaum (The Mentalist, NCIS: New Orleans). Other executive producers include Avi Nir (Homeland, Tyrant), Alon Shtruzman (Save Yourselves!), Peter Traugott (Samantha Who), Ken Woodruff (Gotham) and Rachel Kaplan (Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector). The pilot is directed by Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters).
The epic adventure begins when a massive sinkhole opens in the middle of Los Angeles that draws hundreds of people and buildings into its depths. Those who end up in it find themselves in a mysterious and dangerous country, where they have no choice but to team up to survive. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is desperately trying to understand what happened. In search of answers, one family torn by this catastrophe will have to reveal the secrets of this inexplicable event in order to find a way to each other…
