What appears the be the final piece in NBC’s drama puzzle this pilot season has fallen in — NBC has given the green light to Eric Kripke/JJ Abrams’ drama Revolution. The project, from Warner Bros. TV, had a massive production commitment with a $2 million penalty attached to it. The pilot order comes after a recent rewrite. Revolution, written by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, is being described as a high-octane action drama following a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist. Abrams, Kripke and Bryan Burk are executive producing. This marks the second pilot order this season for Abrams’ Bad Robot, which is also behind the Mark Schwahn-penned Shelter at the CW.
