Good news!  According to TVByTheNumbers, NBC has picked up “Revolution”, a sci-fi drama/ thriller from TV god JJ Abrams (creator of LOST, Fringe, Alcatraz and director of Star Trek, Super 8 and more) and Supernatural creator, Eric Kripke!  Revolution would follow a group of people trying to survive in a world where “all energy sources have been mysteriously made inoperable.”  It will star David Lyons (The Cape), Billy Burke (Twilight) and best of all, Giancarlo Esposito (Gus from Breaking Bad)!  I’ve heard good things about the pilot script which makes me very excited to see this premier, most likely this fall!

What do you think of the premise?  Do you think it will succeed or will it be this year’s failed sci-fi show (like FlashForward or The Event in past years)? Comment below!
