'Revolution' Bosses Reveal Powerful Details of First Season

Certainly one show we're keeping our eye on for the fall is that of the J.J. Abrams-produced, Jon Favreau-directed Eric Kripke post-apocalyptic drama 'Revolution,' for more reasons than the mouthful we just described.  As one of the more highly-anticipated pilots, even the screening we saw at Comic-Con 2012 left us with a few head-scratching questions, so who better to answer than Kripke and Favreau themselves?

Power is everything! Though you won’t be able to check out the pilot of NBC’s ‘Revolution’ until it’s debut on Monday, September 17, we were on hand at Comic-Con 2012 to both preview the first episode, and speak with its cast and crew, including ‘Twilight’s' Billy Burke, ‘Supernatural’ creator Eric Kripke and former ‘Breaking Bad’ star Giancarlo Esposito? So, what did we think?

Of all the new network shows premiering this Fall, 'Revolution' surely looks the most ambitious. An epic science fiction tale from the guys behind 'Lost' and 'Supernatural'? What is there not to be excited about? The trailers for 'Revolution' -- which takes place in a world where electricity has mysteriously ceased to be, sending the entire planet into a post-apocalyptic tailspin -- definitely look promising.
Elizabeth Mitchell (known to TV fans as Juliet on 'Lost') joining the cast certainly doesn't hurt.

Sometimes it takes years of putting your knows to the grindstone before becoming the lead of a major TV series.  Some find themselves lucky enough that the studios are willing to take chances.  And yet sometimes, it's as easy as "What about this guy?  He's already here, so why not?"

We love just about everything J.J. Abrams does, from his 'Star Trek' movies to the myriad of high-concept TV series that, well...always seem to wind up in danger of being cancelled.  We're still with you, 'Fringe'.
In any case, the latest thriller from acclaimed director and producer J.J. Abrams as well as 'Supernatural' creator Eric Kripke 'Revolution' continues swelling with notable castings, first with 'Breaking Bad' Guy Giancarlo Esposito, and now as TVLine reports Billy Burke, best known to movie-going audiences as Bella Swan's father Charlie of the 'Twilight' films.
