J.J. Abrams' apocalyptic 'Revolution' gets NBC series order -- PHOTO

Posted on

BLACKOUT

The Revolution will be televised.

Except for the characters on NBC’s new series Revolution, because they will have no electricity to watch TV after an apocalyptic disaster leaves America unplugged from all devices and machines. That’s right, there’s no cars, no cell phones, no Internet, no…actually, that sounds like it could be pretty relaxing.

But we’re sure being stripped of technology will have some serious consequences for the show’s characters, who will be played by costars like Billy Burke (Twilight), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) and Andrea Roth (Ringer). Sci-fi wunderkin J.J. Abrams (Lost) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural) will produce the project. First photo:
