Season 1

Revolution is an American post-apocalyptic science fiction television drama series created by Eric Kripke and produced by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and set in a dystopian future 15 years after an unknown phenomenon disabled all technology dependent on electricity on the planet, ranging from computers and electronics to car engines, jet engines and batteries.

The series focuses on the Matheson family, who possess a special device that is the key to not only finding out what happened, but also a possible way to reverse its effects. However, they must elude various enemy groups who want to possess that power for themselves.

The series premiered in the USA on NBC on 17 September, 2012.

Revolution premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Thursday 27 September 2012, at 20h30. It went on hiatus after 10 episodes to accommodate a similar hiatus in the USA.

Revolution resumed on M-Net Series on Thursday 4 April 2013, at 20h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 20 episodes in the first season.

Synopsis

What would you do without it all?

In this epic adventure from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and Supernatural's Eric Kripke, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology - computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights - has mysteriously blacked out forever.

A drama with sweeping scope and intimate focus, Revolution is also about family - both the family you're born into and the family you choose.

This is a swashbuckling journey of hope and rebirth seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers).

When Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders for a darker purpose, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke), a former U.S. Marine living a reclusive life.

Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America.

All the while, they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed, and if - or how - it will ever return.

The series also stars Anna Lise Phillips as Maggie, Zak Orth as Aaron, JD Pardo as Nate, Giancarlo Esposito as Captain Tom Neville, David Lyons as Bass, Maria Howell as Grace, Daniella Alonso as Nora, Tim Guinee as Ben Matheson and Elizabeth Mitchell as Rachel Matheson.

Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk (Lost, Star Trek) serve as executive producers, and Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) serves as co-executive producer. Revolution is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television.

The pilot was directed by Favreau.
