    EXCLUSIVE: With 2 new series, Person of Interest and Alcatraz, one returning, Fringe, and a Star Trek movie sequel on his plate, it wasn’t clear whether J.J. Abrams would be developing this year. He did and the result, a drama written by Supernatural creator/executive producer Eric Kripke, has gotten a pilot production commitment from NBC. Like most things JJ, details about the project titled Revolution are being kept under wraps but it’s being described as an epic adventure thriller. It hails from Abrams’ Bad Robot production company and Warner Bros. TV where the company is based. Abrams, Kripke and Bryan Burk are executive producing.
    This is the second high-profile project for WME-repped Kripke this season. He also is writing/executive producing an adaptation of the DC Comic Deadman for the CW and WBTV.

    That's a pretty orgasmic collaboration. First JJ and Jonah Nolan, now JJ and Kripke?

    Sign me the **** up! :up:

    This partnership amuses me since their shows compete against each other on Friday. If NBC puts this show on Fridays at 9 my mind will shatter.

    I can't believe so excited I am for this show, especially since all we have so far is the title.

    Abrams and Kripke? They would make beautiful sci-fi babies together!

    JJ and Kripke are still technically competitors with Fringe and Supernatural going up against each other every Friday night.

    I really wish we'd get some plot details on this thing. I'm intrigued beyond reason, but all we've got to go on is a title and the names JJ Abrams and Eric Kripke. :o

    This sounds awesome. Me and my friends always talk about what we would do if something like this would happen.

    Looking forward to this! I wonder if anyone from Lost will be in it?

    I wish there wasn't the family bit in the description, I think the show would be more fun if it focused on some other dynamic since the family one has largely been done to death.

    Still, I will give it a shot to prove me wrong :)

    It's pretty hard to avoid the family issue, as its the core of a character's emotionality. Most shows just kill off the family, but a few actually keep them as characters. It's hard to do, especially with kid characters, but I expect good things from Kripke on that front.

    Wait? It's NBC? Craaaaaaaaaaaaaap. So, they probably won't support it much.

    NBC has been pretty supportive of their shows of late. They promote the crap out of them and instead of yanking a show after two weeks like Fox or CBS would and let it run 5-9 weeks or a whole season - its just their shows haven't found an audience and have terrible, terrible ratings.

    They are in the toilet so they'll keep things going until they no longer can. Look at how long they kept The Firm on Thursdays, it is their lowest rated Thursday show ever (now replaced by Grimm reruns until Awake premieres)!
