Project hails from Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta

Theroux will play Kevin Garvey, a chief of police and father of two who is trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy in this new world. The thesp recently appeared in feature film “Wanderlust,” and held a recurring role on NBC’s “Parks and Rec.”

Theroux shares a history with HBO as well, as he appeared in “Six Feet Under” a decade ago.
