J.J. Abrams sells sci-fi apocalypse pilot to NBC
First it was Star Trek reboot & now he's taking a wack at Gamma World? Nope this looks like Aftermath the television series. Every single piece of technology? Hmm this might actually be worth watching. I wonder where this is going to go?
Just when you thought J.J. Abrams might not have a sci-fi pilot in contention for next fall, along comes Revolution.
NBC has picked up a new drama pilot from the Star Trekdirector and Warner Bros. TV. The logline: “A high octane action drama from J. J. Abrams 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.”
Now that’s the rather cryptic official description. But here’s an earlier, more exciting logline with more detail:“In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever.”
