It has been said that angels walk among us . . . That they guide us . . . It could be the banker . . . The girl next door . . . the cop on the street . . . As the war wages between good and evil . . . There is a temptress that could destroy everything we believe in . . . But there is a boy, whose future is not his own . . . His destiny has been rewritten . . . This is his story . . .
Based on the series of hit books called "The Fallen" by Tom Sniegoski, FALLEN chronicles the phenomenal journey of an 18-year-old, who struggles to come to terms with his newly discovered identity as he is drawn into a world where angels -- good and evil -- walk among us. This story delves into the mythology of the fallen angels and their offspring, who are looking for the chosen one to come redeem them and allow them back into Heaven.
Orphaned at birth, all Aaron Corbett ever wanted was a normal life. But just as he was beginning to settle in with his adoptive family, a higher power steps in and changes his entire existence.
On the eve of his 18th birthday, Aaron experiences some disturbing nightmares. Then, the day's events slowly reveal to him that he now possesses some unusual talents. As he plays with his dog, Gabriel, he discovers that he can communicate with him. In a scuffle with pals at school, he freezes time. Then, in a desperate attempt to understand what is happening to him, Aaron seeks guidance from his longtime psychologist, to whom he begins to speak in multiple languages.
But it is not until he is approached by two strangers that it becomes very clear to him that his fate is greater than he ever imagined. Destined to be the liaison between angels, mortals and the powers both good and evil, Aaron must fight for his own survival and to protect those he loves.
FALLEN is executive produced by Sara B. Cooper, Mikael Salomon, Jay Sanders and Peter Donaldson, and also stars Fernanda Andrade, Alex Ferris, Chelah Horsdal, Lisa Lackey, Russell Porter and Rick Worthy.
