In case you were wondering what happened to the planned extended teaser preview of NBC’s Revolution that was supposed to air Saturday night, NBC silently canceled it when they shuffled around their tape-delayed airing of the sporting events that day. Instead, they are going to air a shorter preview (about 2:40 in length) tonight during a commercial pod taking place prior to the airing of the Women’s Gymnastics Uneven Bars competition, sometime between 10:45pm and 11:15pm EDT.
The drama comes from producers J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke and director Jon Favreau – read on for the official description.
What would you do without it all? In this epic adventure from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Supernatural’s Eric Kripke, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape void of electricity: 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 series stars Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga) as Miles Matheson, Tracy Spiridakos (Being Human) as Charlie Matheson, Graham Rogers (Memphis Beat) as Danny Matheson, Anna Lise Phillips (Animal Kingdom) as Maggie, Zak Orth (Romeo + Juliet) as Aaron, JD Pardo (Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2) as Nate, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) as Captain Tom Neville, David Lyons (The Cape) as Bass, Maria Howell (The Blind Side) as Grace, Daniella Alonso (Friday Night Lights) as Nora, Tim Guinee (Iron Man) as Ben Matheson and Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost) as Rachel Matheson. Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk (Lost, Star Trek) serve as executive producers, and Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) serves as co-executive producer. Revolution is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Favreau.
