In a global cataclysm, "The Sudden Departure," 140 million people just disappeared. Three years later, residents of Mapleton, N.Y., try to maintain equilibrium when the notion of "normal" no longer applies. Keen grief has divided families and turned faith to cynicism, paranoia and madness. Some of the traumatized have joined the Guilty Remnant, a cultlike group. Kevin Garvey, a beleaguered police chief, must keep peace between townspeople and the cult, a task made tougher with concern about his kids. His daughter alternates between apathy and rebellion; his wayward son befriends a charismatic prophet. "The Leftovers" is based on Tom Perrotta's best-seller, and he is one of the series' executive producers.
