J.J. Abrahms is hoping use his Midas touch on his latest television project Revolution. Imagine a world where electricity doesn’t work. No ph0nes, lights, refrigeration, even the cars and trucks stop running. It would be like a giant EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) hit the world. Planes falling from the sky.
If you don’t think it would be a big deal just picture yourself in your car driving to work, home, or on the highway to start your vacation. Now your car, heck, no one’s car is moving, your miles from home, do you even have a bottle of water or food for the walk home? The average commute for an American worker drives is 16 miles. How long would that take you to walk?
Revolution has a lot of familiar faces, Billy Burke (Twilight), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) and Andrea Roth (Ringer). Other cast members include Tracy Spiridakos (Syfy’s Being Human), Graham Rogers and Anna Lise Phillips.
Revolution is being written by Eric Kripke, produced by Abrams and directed by none other than Jon Favreau. If that doesn’t get your nerdy juices running I don’t know what will.
What do you think of the Revolution cast? Will you be tuning in?
