Check out this awesome extended promo trailer for J.J. Abrams' new NBC series Revolution that was shown during the Olympics. The promo is 2:47 long and it shows what looks to be an incredible series. It was written and produced by Eric Kripke (Supernatural), and the pilot episode was directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man).
The story is an action drama that follows a group of people struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist. I'm really excited about this series, and I hope it turns out to be as good as it looks!
Here's the official synopsis:
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 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 premieres September 17th on NBC. Check out the trailer and let us know if you'll you be watching!?
