Even prior to any casting or extensive plot details, the NBC pilot Revolution has major geek credentials.  J.J. Abrams and partner Bryan Burk—who together have brought us Star Trek, Alias, Lost, Fringe, etc.—are producing.  Supernatural creator Eric Kripke wrote the script.  Now Deadline reports Jon Favreau, he of Iron Man fame, will direct the pilot.  Favreau has directed a few TV comedies before, including an episode of Undeclared, but nothing of this scope.  Revolution is described as “a high-octane action drama following 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.”  I don’t know what that means, but it sounds very cool, mostly because I trust the parties involved.

Favreau is also working on Tweaked this pilot season over at CBS.  He wrote the script, which chronicles life and dating among single parents in Santa Monica, and is attached to direct.

    Is J.J. Abrams wearing a fake nose?

    JJ Abrams has to stop and take a deep breath instead of creating all these shows. From “Alcatraz” to “Undercovers”, his shows are slowly declining in quality. he should just stop and focus on one show for atleast one season before shitting out countless mediocore shows.

    All forms of energy? WTF!. It sounds like another BS concept from Abrams that will use the same stupid human emotion stories and shoehorn in some big sci fi concept that he’ll never end up delivering on. If this is some sort of post apocalyptic drama I’ll watch it though. I would like to see a Fallout series.

    “All” forms of energy? O-kay. Wouldn’t that include things like kinetic energy? Sounds to me like Superman back in the 40s and 50s where he would be exactly as strong as he needed to be for the particular story. One day he’s lifting mountains to damn floods, the next he’s having trouble with a championship boxer. This show will probably say, “nuclear energy and gasoline don’t work, but hydroelectric does” one week, and then “hydroelectric doesn’t work, but solar does” the next.

    If all forms of energy cease to exists, then we as humans would cease to exist. I love Kripke(Supernatural still rocks) and Abrams but there better be a damn good explanation why the human race along with everything else didnt go away, because we are energy.

      I like Kripke too but this season of Supernatural…I mean it’s pretty awful. I think they kind of had no where left to go after they reached God and the Devil.

    People, shut the fuck up. Of course they’re not talking about kinetic energy. Stop trying to make yourselves sound smart. We all took a physics class at some point in our educational careers.

    uhhh solar energy will never cease to exist…unless our sun dies…which means we die….
