Looks like JJ Abrams has another genre TV series sold to NBC for next fall.  Sound pretty cool!

Multiple Hollywood trades are reporting that NBC has picked up Revolution from Warner Bros. Television and JJ Abrams Bad Robot. Abrams and Eric Kripke (Supernatural) will executive produce along with Abrams' Bad Robot partner (and fellow Star Trek producer) Bryan Burk. The pilot was written by Kripke and directed by Iron Man's Jon Favreau. Here is a description:

"In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out ... forever."

The cast includes Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) and Billy Burke (Twilight). NBC has also released an official image for the show.

Hmmm, sounds like 'The Postman' meets 'The Day The Earth Stood Still'.  I'll give the show a try, that is for sure.

Meets Terra Nova meets The Walking Dead, etc.  End of the world scenario's have been done A LOT!  Hopefully they can bring something new to the party.

Just watched the pilot episode.  Intriguing and I like it so far.  Definitely going to keep watching.

I will keep watching, but I have higher hopes


[spoiler]I can't help getting frustrated over
- kids portrayed as so stupid who get their family and friends killed
- perfect bright too shiny teeth without those dentist checkups!
- a bit overweight geek after 15 years without a Krogers nearby
- single shot muskets, really?
