WATCH: Extended Preview of JJ Abrams’ “Revolution”
The Olympic-sized extended preview of JJ Abrams’ produced sci-fi drama Revolution premiered tonight on NBC during the prime-time Olympic coverage. What happens when every piece of technology on Earth suddenly stops working? Electricity mysteriously ceases to exist? Revolution picks up fifteen years after this world-changing event takes place following the survivors as they navigate the new world order, including the militia as they aim to stay together, stay alive, and maybe even get the world back on track.
If the talent behind Revolution is any indication this series it not to be missed. Backed by JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, Revolution comes from the mind of creator Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and the pilot is directed by Jon Favreau (the Iron Man films) and the cast includes the brilliant Giancarlo Esposito fresh off his stint as the terrifying drug kingpin Gustavo Fring on Breaking Bad and Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost).
