Revolution is a post-apocalyptic action-adventure series, which first premiered on Monday, September 17, 2012, at 10 PM Eastern Time, on NBC.
15 years after a mysterious blackout disables all types of electricity throughout the world, Charlie Matheson must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles, a former U.S. Marine living a reclusive life, after her brother Danny is kidnapped by militia leader Tom Neville for a darker purpose. Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the Monroe Republic 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.
Revolution was co-created by J.J. Abrams (Lost) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural), with the "Pilot" directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Cowboys and Aliens).
