HBO at work on 'Leftovers' pilot from Damon Lindelof

It looks like Tom Perrotta's "The Leftovers" will be dished out on HBO.

New York Magazine's Vulture reports that the network is moving forward with production on a pilot adaptation of Perrotta's 2011 novel, which centers on those left behind three years following a Rapture-esque occurrence.

Perrotta and "Lost's" Damon Lindelof are behind the drama's script, but we await to hear who will helm the pilot or when production is slated to begin.

In June, Lindelof described his excitement to explore the possibilities of a new TV production.

"I'm sure there's a certain subset of viewers who watched 'Lost' until the bitter end and will say, 'I'm just not going to put myself through that again,'" Lindelof told Vulture. "But I'm so incredibly magnetized to this concept and the people in this story. It's firing all my creative pistons in a way that haven't been fired since 'Lost.'"
