The trailer for NBC’s upcoming TV Show, ‘Revolution’ has just been released and it looks very promising. Looking at it, it sounds like it’s going to be a mixture between The Event and Jericho; although hopefully it will last longer before being cancelled.
I really like the concept of the show, although it’s probably best not to look too closely at the science behind it, so hopefully it will do well.
Revolution will air this fall on Monday nights 10/9 ET
Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why?
Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down, the lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it?
On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.
Revolution stars Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Anna Lise Phillips, Zak Orth, Graham Rogers, J.D. Pardo, Giancarlo Esposito, David Lyons, Maria Howell, Tim Guinee and Andrea Roth. Kripke, Abrams, Favreau and Bryan Burk all serve as executive producers.
