What would you do without it all? In this Epic
adventure from J.J. Abrams
' Bad Robot Productions and "Supernatural's" Eric Kripke, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology -- computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights -- has mysteriously blacked out forever. A drama with sweeping scope and intimate focus, -- and television's #1 new Fall series in the key demographic -- "Revolution" is also about family -- both the family you're born into and the family you choose. This is a swashbuckling journey of hope and rebirth as seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos
, "Being Human"), and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers, "Memphis Beat").
When Danny was kidnapped by a powerful militia for a darker purpose, Charlie tracked down her estranged Uncle Miles (Billy Burke
, "The Twilight Saga"), a former militia member himself, to help find her brother. Together, with a rogue band of survivors including Aaron (Zak Orth
, "Romeo + Juliet") and Nora (Daniella Alonso
, "Friday Night Lights"), they crossed the country, eventually rescuing Danny - as well as discovering Charlie and Danny's presumed dead mother, Rachel Matheson (ELIZABETH MITCHELL
, "Lost"), a scientist with inside knowledge of the power outage who was also being held by the militia.
Now, newly reinforced, Charlie, Miles, Aaron and Rachel set out to overthrow the militia led by the ruthless Monroe (David Lyons, "The Cape") and his brutal enforcer, Major Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito
, "Breaking Bad") -- and ultimately strive to re-establish the United States of America. All the while, they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed, and if -- or how -- it will ever be restored.
The series also stars JD Pardo ("A Cinderella Story") as Jason Neville and Tim Guinee
("Iron Man") as Ben Matheson. Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk ("Lost," "Star Trek") serve as executive producers, and Jon Favreau
("Iron Man," "Iron Man 2") serves as co-executive producer. "Revolution" is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television.
