Justin Theroux will star in The Leftovers, an HBO drama pilot from Lost cocreator Damon Lindelof, TVLine has confirmed.

Based on Tom Perrotta’s book, the project is set after the Rapture and tells the story of those folks that didn’t quite make the cut.

Per Deadline, Theroux will play police chief Kevin Garvey, a father of two who is trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy in a world that is starting to completely reject that notion.

Lindelof co-wrote the pilot with Perrotta and both will serve as exec producers. Friday Night Lights‘ Peter Berg is on board to direct.

Theroux’s previous TV credits include Six Feet Under and Sex and the City.
