The book is set in a post-apocalyptic world and follows those left behind following a Rapture-like event.

Lindelof's adaptation is currently seeking a director and a production start date is yet to be set, but a full series is unlikely to debut until 2014.

The 39-year-old writer's additional credits include 2009's Star Trek, 2012's Prometheus and the forthcoming George Clooney film project Tomorrowland directed by Brad Bird (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol).

His new pilot The Leftovers was first announced in June 2012.
