Unless you’re a die hard fan of the Olympics and stuck around for the late night portion of NBC’s coverage, you probably missed this. It’s an extended trailer of the network's new series Revolution from J.J. Abrams. You get a pretty good taste here of the premise, taken from the pilot directed by Jon Favreau.
That’s Billy Burke as the samurai-like hero (although you have to worry about a guy who brings a sword to a bow and arrow fight). Newcomer Alana Spiridakos is the plucky pilgrim in the dystopian future. And that’s Giancarlo Esposito (Gus from Breaking Bad) as the nasty militia captain.
I’m going to guess Elizabeth Mitchell makes some sort of miraculous return. You don’t cast an actress that good and then kill her off after a 15-second cameo in the first episode.
Revolution debuts Monday Sept. 17 at 10 p.m.
