Just a couple of days after NBC renewed its hit freshman drama, Revolution, the series is adding a big name to its executive producer cast. Farscape’s Rockne S. O’Bannon has signed on as an executive producer for Season 2 of the hit series, which will begin airing on NBC next fall. Additionally, CSI: New York’s Trey Calloway will be taking on a role as a co-executive producer for next season.
Famous for writing and executive producing on Farscape, O’Bannon has spent the last year working on a variety of projects, including writing for Syfy’s new series Defiance. He also created and executive produced The CW’s short-lived series, Cult, which aired a few episodes on Tuesdays before being shipped off to Fridays and eventually cancelled by the network. Cult unfortunately got a raw deal on the network, getting kicked off before the final episodes from Season 1 aired. Luckily, Revolution is a bit more of a ratings darling at its network and shouldn’t get the same poor treatment O’Bannon’s last project had.
According to THR, O’Bannon will serve as the number 2 guy after showrunner Eric Kripke on the series, which means he’s nabbed a pretty big behind-the-scenes role. Revolution still has a few more episodes to air in its first season. The Season 1 finale was pushed back into June after episode rescheduling went down during the Boston Marathon tragedy.
Revolution airs new episodes on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
Reality TV fan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. Theme park junkie. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
