BSkyB seizes ‘Revolution’ in U.K.

Satcaster previously aired J.J. Abrams' 'Lost'

LONDON

U.K. paybox BSkyB is to air J.J. Abrams’ post-apocalyptic thriller “Revolution” following a three-season exclusive deal with Warner Bros. Intl. Television Distribution.

The show, a hit for NBC in the U.S., will bow next year on BSkyB’s flagship entertainment web Sky 1.

BSkyB’s acquisitions topper Sarah Wright said: “Our customers have always had a strong connection with J.J. Abrams’ event series. We’re confident that ‘Revolution’ will prove to be a monster hit with them following its record breaking debut in the U.S.”

The first episode begins with a family attempting to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape where all technology has blacked out.

Abrams’ “Lost” was a signature show for the U.K. paybox, but had bowed on free-to-air pubcaster Channel 4, before BSkyB outbid Channel 4 for the skein.
