Billy Burke and Eric Kripke Discuss Revolution at Comic Con
NBC’s premiering Revolution, the new sci-fi adventure series from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Supernatural‘s Eric Kripke, on September 17th. And as part of spreading the word about the upcoming premiere, NBC brought the cast and Kripke to the San Diego Comic Con to discuss the show.
In these interviews supplied by NBC, Kripke and Billy Burke talk about why it was important to bring the show to Comic Con, genre fans, and what will set this series apart.
What would you do without it all? In this epic adventure, 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, 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 seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers). When Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders for a darker purpose, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles (Burke), a former U.S. Marine living a reclusive life. Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia, and ultimately 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 return.
