There's a revolution coming to NBC. And presumably, it will be televised.
According to Deadline, J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke have sold a new drama called "Revolution" to NBC with a pilot commitment.
Although the premise for the project is currently under wraps, "Revolution" is described as "an epic adventure thriller." The potential series was written and created by Kripke, with Abrams' Bad Robot production company and Warner Brothers TV set to produce.
Last month, Kripke was also linked to a possible "Deadman" adaptation on the CW network; which would bring the DC comics character to television. Kripke is best known for creating "Supernatural," which just entered its seventh season on the CW. Prior to that, Kripke wrote for the short-lived WB "Tarzan" series as well as the "Boogeyman" feature film. Kripke has also previously been attached to a "Sandman" TV series which ultimately did not go forward.
As for Abrams, he has long history on television, having created or co-created "Alias," "Lost," "Fringe" and "Felicity" among others. Abrams had a series on NBC last fall called "Undercovers," which failed to catch on and became one of his few TV projects to end quickly. Abrams also had a pilot featuring former "Lost" stars Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn as retired spies set up at NBC that was passed over.
In addition to "Fringe," Abrams currently has "Person of Interest" airing on CBS and the upcoming "Alcatraz" heading to Fox at midseason. Abrams is also preparing to direct the highly anticipated sequel to his "Star Trek" reboot.
