After departing from the hit drama Supernatural following his five year plan and telling the story that he wanted to tell, creator Eric Kripke is back and teaming up with one of the most powerful men in Hollywood J.J. Abrams in the new NBC dramaRevolution. Nearly on everyone’s radar, the upcoming series follows a world without any power and details life in this dystopia following the massive blackout. As pilots have begun to slowly make their way officially online in order to generate buzz, today NBC has released their fourth pilot as Revolution‘s first episode can now be seen in full. See it for yourself right after the jump!
What would you do without it all? In this epic adventure, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology – computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights – has mysteriously blacked out forever. A drama with sweeping scope and intimate focus, Revolution is also about family – both the family you’re born into and the family you choose.
This is a swashbuckling journey of hope and rebirth seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos, “Being Human”), and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers, “Memphis Beat”). When Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders for a darker purpose, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke, “The Twilight Saga”), a former U.S. Marine living a reclusive life.
Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America. All the while, they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed, and if – or how – it will ever return.
With the pilot episode directed by Iron Man‘s Jon Favreau,Revolution premieres on Monday September 17th at 10PM.
