Earlier this week NBC released an extended preview of Revolution to give audiences a better sense of what the post-apocalyptic series will be like. Now the Peacock Network has posted a longer five-minute look at the series that includes interviews with pilot director Jon Favreau, exec producer J.J. Abrams, and series creator Eric Kripke (Supernatural).
It’s interesting to see Favreau emphasizing the journey of the characters more than the show’s high concept, while Abrams and Kripke talk about the global power outage that is the inciting event of the series. Let’s just hope the producers and writers have a good answer for why the power went out in the first place, even if they don’t reveal it for a while. We don’t want another Terra Nova or Lost on our hands.
Revolution‘s pilot episode was screened at San Diego Comic-Con last month to a mixed reception. Some sci-fi geeks who lined up for hours to watch the episode fell in love with the pilot, comparing it to The Walking Dead and Jericho, while others said it was more in the vein of Terra Nova or FlashForward.
NBC is also offering a special advance screening of Revolution‘s season premiere in movie theaters. Simply go to the official Revolution Facebook page and hit the “Like” button to be entered in a poll to see which U.S. cities will host the event. If you’re not lucky enough to catch the special advanced screening, you can watch Revolution when it premieres this September 17th on NBC. You can watch the earlier preview of the show right here.
