The upcoming post-apocalyptic drama from NBC starts September 17.
Apparently, the end of the world starts with Woody Woodpecker. That appears to be the premise of NBC's upcoming Revolution, brought to you by such luminaries as JJ Abrams, Jon Favreau, and Eric Kripke. Fifteen years after all the world's electricity blinks out, society devolves into horses, flashy swordfighting, crossbows, and Giancarlo Esposito doing stuff.
Last night, NBC aired this extended preview of the show during their Olympics coverage (which means the preview actually occurred eight hours earlier – BOOSH!!). We saw a lot of this before, though some of the Billy Burke swordfighting action seems to be new, and the preview ends with an allusion to an unexpected twist that will probably be running throughout the show. Should be interesting. Also: how YOU can win a theater screening of the pilot episode in your town (just go to their Facebook page)!
