Here’s a new Revolution promotional image featuring Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) [more here]:
I looks good and plenty seriable. The central mystery and character journey both look to have potential. I’m pleased a story like this is getting made for the so-called ‘small screen’, though it remains to be seen whether this story can distinguish itself in the long run from others like it.
It will also be interesting to see if and how they maintain Jon Favreau’s cinematic eye throughout the series. Small thing: the logo incorporating the universal power symbol (technically the ‘standby’ symbol) — nice touch.
Revolution will air this fall, 10/9c on NBC. Here’s another look at the outline:
Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why?
Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down, the lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it?
On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.
From director Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2”) and the fertile imaginations of J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke (“Supernatural”), comes a surprising “what if” action-adventure series, where an unlikely hero will lead the world out of the dark. Literally.
