Amanda Warren has joined the cast of Damon Lindelof's adaptation of Tom Perrotta's novel, The Leftovers


Warren joins Carrie Coon, Christopher EcclestonJustin Theroux, and Ann Dowd in the HBO project.

Here's a description of the book, courtesy of Amazon.com:

Author Tom Perrotta is a master at exposing the quiet desperation behind America’s suburban sheen. In The Leftovers he explores what would happen if The Rapture actually took place and millions of people just disappeared from the earth. How would normal people respond? Perrotta’s characters show a variety of coping techniques, including indifference, avoidance, depression, freaking out, and the joining of cults. Despite the exceptional circumstances, it’s really not unlike how people respond to more minor incidents in their lives (excepting cults). The result is a novel that’s a slow burn yet strangely compelling, one that leaves the reader pondering the story long after it’s over. In vivid and occasionally satiric prose, he takes a bizarre and abnormal event--the Rapture--and imagines how normal people would deal with being left behind.

Amanda Warren will play a character named Lucy Warburton, the take-no-prisoners mayor of the city in which the story takes place.

Lindelof will co-write and executive produce, with Peter Berg directing the pilot.

Warren's resume includes The Adjustment Bureau, Detroit 1-8-7, Royal Pains, The Closer and much more.
