Revolution is an upcoming American science fiction dramatic television series that will premiere on NBC Mondays 10:00/9:00c after The Voice during the 2012–13 television season. The network placed a series order in May 2012. The series is created by Eric Kripke and produced by J. J. Abrams and Bryan Burk. Iron Man director Jon Favreau directed the pilot episode.

Revolution takes place in a post-apocalyptic future based loosely on the series of novels known as The Emberverse series. Fifteen years ago, an unknown phenomenon permanently disabled all advanced technology on the planet, ranging from computers and electronics to car engines and batteries. People were forced to adapt to a world without technology, and due to the collapse of public order, many areas are ruled by warlords and militias. The series focuses on the Matheson family, who possess an item that is the key to not only finding out what happened fifteen years ago, but also a possible way to reverse its effects. However, they must elude warlords and militias who want that power for themselves.




Saw this teaser trailer on NBC, so went to Youtube to check out the full length. It's certainly an interesting premise, and shouldn't be too expensive to make (except when they go to the big cities, like Chicago). Reminds me of what Jericho could have become, and a little bit of The Hunger Games, what with the attractive young lady archer in the trailer.

My only problem, it's on NBC. That right there tells me it's probably cancelled already.

tighr,

I like your thread title the best. Your thread title is more of the norm.

Unfortunately, lwright84 already created the native thread back on 05/13/2012.

TV Notes
'Revolution's' 'Lost' Reunion: Elizabeth Mitchell Joins J.J. Abrams Drama as Series Regular
By Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter's 'Live Feed' Blog - Jun. 30, 2012

It's a Lost reunion for NBC's Revolution.

The upcoming freshman drama from Lost's J.J. Abrams and Supernatural's Eric Kripke has brought in former Lost star Elizabeth Mitchell as a series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The adventure drama, starring Twilight's Billy Burke, is set in a world that exists after every piece of technology including cars, planes, computers, phones and lights mysteriously black out forever and follows a family struggling to reunite in the post-apocalyptic world.

Mitchell will play Rachel Matheson, mother of Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny (Graham Rogers), who is described as a beautiful and warm parent who's terrified of the ordeal that her children will face as they navigate the dystopian world. Mitchell (Gia) will appear in flashbacks.

She'll replace Andrea Roth, who played the role in the pilot, and join new castmember Daniella Alonso, who will play a new character, Nora, a rebel fighter.

Mitchell played Dr. Juliet Burke on Abrams' ABC island-set drama Lost from 2006-10. The Revolution role marks her first series regular gig since she spent two seasons starring as Erica Evans on ABC's V reboot. More recently, she appeared in a guest stint on NBC's Law & Order: SVU.

Mitchell is repped by IFA Talent Agency, Kritzer Levine and Hirsch Wallerstein.
