Character Profile Videos for Eric Kripke’s Revolution
NBC has been releasing these character profiles for their new show “Revolution” (from “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke, but if you didn’t know that you might think J.J. Abrams is the only guy working on this show) a while now, but I’ve waited until now to gather them all for this one post. Why? Mostly laziness. Please to enjoy.
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 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.
Amazingly, 15 years later and Billy Burke still looks the same. Dude must eat right or something. Also starring Tracy Spiridakos, Anna Lise Phillips, Zak Orth, Graham Rogers, JD Pardo, Giancarlo Esposito, David Lyons, Maria Howell, Daniella Alonso, Tim Guinee, and Elizabeth Mitchell.
“Revolution” premieres September 17th on NBC.
