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.
What do you get when Jon Favreau, JJ Abrams and Eric Kripke collaborate on a post-apocalyptic adventure series for NBC? You get 'Revolution,' a mystery-laden show about what happens when electricity mysteriously vanishes but mankind lives on.
We're at that time of year when networks pick up or drop shows in a frenzy, while loyal fans wait patiently for news of their favorite series ultimate fate (we're still rooting for you, 'Community!'). So with NBC only days away from unveiling their full fall lineup, what "revolutionary" new series have been given the green light, and which rejected?
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.
