His next gig finds him returning to the world of episodic television, this time on HBO with "The Leftovers," another supernatural story with an intriguing premise.

20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2014
Somehow, we're still getting think pieces on whether or not the movies are superior from TV, presumably from writers who haven't yet worked out that you're allowed to watch both. Ultimately, the movies can scratch itches that TV can't, and vice versa, and the two mediums can quite happily co-exist, even as the lines between them blur a little.

12 Show Hoping To Be The Next 'Breaking Bad'
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone. The one who knocks knocks no more. We won't give away what went down in Sunday's series finale of "Breaking Bad," partly because we don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't yet seen it and partly because we wrote this before it aired, but we know that we're not spoiling anything to say that there's no more of Vince Gilligan's praised-to-the-skies cult hit coming down the pipeline. The show's two-part fifth season has long been planned to be the last, and Walter White's story is well and truly all wrapped up.

TV news! You know, those things that you can sometimes hook up to Netflix, if they're new enough! Remember the early seasons of “Lost”? Remember when you absolutely had to know what was up with those numbers? Remember when you thought Matthew Fox had a brilliant career ahead of him? 2004 was a strange time, and “Lost” was a huge hit that launched its creators largely out of TV land and into the movies.

If movies were stocks, I’d tell you to invest your retirement funds into rapture/end of the world flicks. Coming out on this side of 2012, I would’ve thought that particular genre would be all dried up, but they seem to be in demand. “After Earth” and “Oblivion” explored Earths that were ravaged by disaster and there’s still “The World’s End”, “This is the End," and “Rapture-Palooza” left to go. Now HBO is getting in on the end of world with Damon Lindelof’s “The Leftovers” which just found its lead actor.

When news that an adaptation of "Election" and "Little Children" author Tom Perotta's book, "The Leftovers," would be hitting TV screens, it was also accompanied by a foreseeable showrunner: “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof. Acclimated to high-concept central mysteries for his entire career, he's now picked his return from film to TV, and it seems he's brought some notable company along for the ride.

Making his name famously or infamously (depending how you look at it) as a writer and producer on the hit ABC series "Lost," Damon Lindelof's career has moved moved in leaps and bounds. With "Cowboys & Aliens" and "Prometheus" under his belt and "Star Trek 2," "World War Z" and the mysterious "1952" on the horizon, he's a highly sought after name for blockbuster material, and one might think the small screen is just not that interesting of a challenge anymore. Well, guess again.
