Earlier this week, we shared the news that NBC had given a series order to the J.J. Abrams/Eric Kripke created drama series Revolution. At the time, we had a cast photo and a vague description of the drama series. Today we have more information on the plot, and a few episode photos from the pilot to share. Check them out ahead!
Created by Abrams (Lost) and Kripke (Supernatural), Revolution stars Bill Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Anna Lise Phillips, Zak Orth, Graham Rogers, J.D. Pardo, Giancarlo Esposito, David Lyons, Maria Howell, Tim Guinee and Andrea Roth. The story follows a group of survivors attempting to get by and trying to find their loved ones after all energy on the planet ceases to exist. NBC's official description for the series hints at the immediate mayhem that ensued following the loss of all energy, but goes on to say that the series picks up fifteen years after it happened…
Moving the focus away from the initial fallout of the blackout by setting it more than a decade later is an interesting twist, and it seems to differentiate it somewhat from shows like Jericho and The Walking Dead in that way. But it also sounds like the mystery of the blackout is still a relevant topic, at least to the "young woman" referenced in the description.
Below are a couple of photos from the pilot episode, one of which shows us Billy Burke as Miles, while the others reveal JD Pardo as Nate, Tracy Spiridakos as Charlie, Zak Orth as Aaron, Anna Lise Phillips as Maggie.
