“Revolution” is a post-apocalyptic / sci fi show that is going into its second season on NBC. The show is produced by J.J. Abrams and tells the story of what can happen after a world wide blackout. The blackout and complete power failure brought the highly technological world to a stand still. No more cars, no more computers, no more planes, trains and Xboxes.
The lack of electricity brought chaos as governments collapsed and warlords came to power. “Revolution” tells the story of one family, 15 years after the major blackout.
The surviving Matheson family who are Ben, Charlie, and Danny, live in Chicago, or what is left of Chicago. The area is controlled by warlords and militia and the Matheson family possess a device which is a USB flash drive hidden within a pendant that is the key to not only finding out what happened fifteen years ago, but also a possible way to reverse its effects.
The show was created by Eric Kripke and produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions. It now airs on the NBC network on Wednesdays at 8 P.M. The show filmed season 1 in Wilmington but moved to Austin Texas to film season 2.
The show is now airing season 2. The season began in September 2013, however more episodes of the show are currently filming and casting directors are still looking for extras.
Casting for the show is being handled by On Location Casting who has an office in the Austin, Texas area.
