NBC has ordered the new SF adventure series Revolution to series. J.J. Abrams (Alias, LOST) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural) are producing the series, which co-stars Stargate SG-1 guest star Tim Guinee (story).
In Revolution he’ll play Ben Matheson, a member of a family trying to reunite after a worldwide catastrophe that leaves civilization without any form of power — from computers and technology to lights and vehicles. The series 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.”
Revolution will also star Billy Burke, Giancarlo Esposito, Tracy Spiridakos, Graham Rogers, Anna Lise Phillips, David Lyons, Andrea Roth, Maria Howell, and Zak Orth.
