NBC orders J.J. Abrams pilot

'Revolution' from WBTV, 'Supernatural' creator

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.”
