John Connor [Cathode Ray Mission 09.16.16] post apocalyptic scifi

WGN is bringing another adaptation of the 1972 short sci-fi novel "Roadside Picnic", written by Russian authors Arkady and Boris Strugatskys, to television and we've got the first images from the set for you to look at.

The images show the distressed sets coming alive to show the aftermath of an extraterrestrial event.

Starring in the series is Matthew Goode (The Imitation Game, Match Point) who plays Redrick “Red” Shuhart in the story about what becomes of earth following a visit from extraterrestrial beings.

In the aftermath of an extraterrestrial event, six visitation zones are created on Earth, each containing supernatural properties.

You may remember that Andrei Tarkovsky adapted the work in the 70's in the post-apocalyptic film, Stalker.

Recommended Release: Stalker

I wouldn't label the novel or the original movie as being PA; outside of the zones, life goes on pretty much as before, except where adapted alien technology starts creeping in.
