Disney to Reboot "The Rocketeer" With Black Female Lead
We’ve known since early February that J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke’s thriller Revolution would revolve around a group of characters struggling to get by after all forms of energy mysteriously cease to exist. But whether the pilot would go to series wasn’t revealed until Monday, when NBC showed off part of its fall 2012 lineup. The Hollywood Reporter has the official description and first photo:
Revoution, from J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke, is described as an epic adventure thriller in which a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever. Billy Burke, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito, Tracy Spiradakos, Graham Rogers, Anna Lise Phillips, Tim Guinee, Andrea Roth, JD Pardo and Zak Orth star in the drama from Warner Bros. Television. Jon Favreau directs the pilot.
Revolution is set to premiere next season on NBC with a pilot directed by Iron Man‘s Jon Favreau.
