Creepy new trailer for the event series Wayward Pines

The television event Wayward Pines from executive producer M. Night Shyamalan may have just landed on my summer watching list. The show, based on the novel "Pines" by Blake Crouch, will remind a lot of you of Twin Peaks and it looks like that may not necessarily be a bad thing. Matt Dillon stars as a Secret Service agent investigating the disappearance of two other agents, when he finds himself trapped in a small town. The town may seem friendly enough, but as you will see, it’s inhabited by some crazy characters.

Read the rather long synopsis and check out the trailer below:

Imagine the perfect American town… beautiful homes, manicured lawns, children playing safely in the streets. Now imagine never being able to leave. You have no communication with the outside world. You think you’re going insane. You must be in Wayward Pines. Secret Service Agent ETHAN BURKE (Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon, “Crash,” “City of Ghosts”) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, searching for two missing federal agents. One of the best Secret Service agents in the Seattle office, he’s the man who knew missing agent KATE HEWSON (Carla Gugino, “Watchmen,” “Entourage”) better than anyone. They were more than partners; their relationship nearly destroyed Ethan’s marriage.

Everything changes when a truck slams into his car…and he wakes up in the Wayward Pines Hospital, with the intense and unpredictable NURSE PAM (Academy Award and Emmy Award winner Melissa Leo, “The Fighter,” “Treme”) at his bedside. It soon appears that Pam is more interested in harming than healing. She and Ethan grow into deadly rivals, and her role in the town proves much deeper than anyone realizes.

What a great cast too! Melissa Leo, Terrence Howard, and the tantalizing Carla Gugino co-star. Shyamalan directs the pilot which airs May 14 at 9 PM on Fox. What do you think, will you be tuning in?
