Not quite, but, pretty damn close! Read on:
What appears the be the final piece in NBC’s drama puzzle this pilot season has fallen in, – NBC has given pilot orders to Revolution, a dramatic thriller from J.J. Abrams and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke. The project, from Warner Bros. TV, had a massive production commitment with a $2 million penalty attached to it. The pilot order comes after a recent rewrite. Described as an epic adventure thriller, the Warner Bros. Television project follows a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist. The project puts him back in the NBC fold, where Undercovers, his short-lived CIA series aired for a few short months before getting the ax.
Kripke will pen the script with Abrams and Bryan Burk (Fringe) on board to exec produce via their Bad Robot.
Its funny, if you think about it,
“All forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist.”
Beside the obvious (oil, natural gas, coal, wood), that would also mean wind, water, sun, dried cow dung, etc. have also ceased to exist?
And, Let me guess. There are also flashbacks to the days when there was power and they were with their loved ones……
Seems interestingly familiar, ………The Twilight Zone??
Well, I sure hope with such big names behind the project, it “Revolution”-izes TV! :-p
