I think it's highly likely to be a series about 2012, or some other global destruction event.
They have a load of prisoners, mention of research facility = scientists "in the know" who were rounded up.
Trailer shows explosive event = common theme of 2012.
Mention of allowing people to "prepare" = again common theme in disaster movies.
There's little to tell me this is specifically about Aliens and disclosure. And more to tell me this is about 2012 or equal global catastrophe.
When you think of how long it takes to write, cast, film and produce a series, this would have begun several years ago, just when the 2012 furor was
at it's height.
I just hope it isn't so drawn out and slow as to loose support. Lessons should have been learned from Jericho, The Nine, Lost, Flash Forward...
unless you have exciting and dramatic scenes in EVERY episode, people loose interest. It's not enough to have one or two amazingly dramatic events to
milk through a whole season. If you do that and rely on "intrigue" for the rest people will become bored and switch off.
