It looks like HBO is moving forward with their plans for a series based on Tom Perotta's 2011 novel, The Leftovers: According to Deadline, Liv Tyler has signed on to a major role in the series.

The pilot has been in development since 2011—before Perotta even released the novel—and is being developed by Lost executive producer and Star Trek Into Darkness writer Damon Lindelof. Justin Theroux has also signed on to star. As a whole, the series will focus on life after the rapture happens"but not quite like it’s supposed to"and "how the sudden disappearance of loved ones affects a small town."

As for her role: Tyler will reportedly be portraying Meg, a woman who becomes a target for recruitment into a cult when she's trying to avoid her upcoming wedding. Fun fact: This is also Tyler's first TV role ever. So, it's kind of a big deal!
