I try not to get excited by new TV shows put out by the major networks. Sure they may sound or look good at first but if they live up to the hype, they are usually unceremoniously canceled. When I first heard about J.J. Abrams teaming up with John Favreau to do a post-apocalyptic drama for NBC I was intrigued but skeptical.
I just watched the the trailer. I am excited for it now. Even with it’s Teenagey Twilight boy meets spunky Hunger Games bow toting girl story. It’s set fifteen years after some sort of global ‘red ring of death’ event renders all electronics inert, sending the survivors of this global event back to the dark ages, literally, see since there are no more lights… and… uh,
Warlords roaming on horseback and shooting guns and walking past landmarks over grown with vegetation. Giancarlo Esposito from Breaking Bad plays a bad guy. What more do you need?
Check out the trailer after the jump, then we’ll get a jump on the letter writing campaign to keep it alive when NBC decides to cancel it in six months.
