NBC has ordered drama pilot “Revolution” from Warner Bros. TV and Bad Robot Prods.
Eric Kripke (“Supernatural”) is writing and executive producing the action-adventure series along with J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk, who are back in business with the Peacock for the first time since the short-lived drama “Undercovers” two years ago.
“Revolution” follows a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist. The hour was a put pilot with a hefty penalty attached if the Peacock didn’t order it.
“Revolution” marks Bad Robot’s second pilot pickup for the 2012-13 season following “Shelter” with “One Tree Hill” executive producer Mark Schwahn at the CW. Bad Robot currently has two series on Fox’s schedule, “Fringe” and the new “Alcatraz.”
