09/17/2012 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Monday) SEASON PREMIERE-AN EPIC ADVENTURE FROM J.J. ABRAMS, ERIC KRIPKE AND JON FAVREAU – What would you do without it all? In this epic adventure from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and “Supernatural’s” Eric Kripke, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape void of electricity: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out forever.
The series stars Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Graham Rogers, Anna Lise Phillips, Zak Orth, JD Pardo, Giancarlo Esposito, David Lyons, Maria Howell, Daniealla Alonso, Tim Guinee and Elizabeth Mitchell. Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk (“Lost,” “Star Trek”) serve as executive producers, and Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2”) serves as co-executive producer. “Revolution” is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Favreau.
