News continues to pour in on the pilot for the new show Revolution, written by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke and co-produced by J.J. Abrams of Lost. Just what is it? Jon Favreau, the man who directed Iron Man will direct the pilot episode of Revolution.

The premise for the show was also released:

“A high-octane action drama 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.”

It’s a pretty basic main plot, but has the potential to take off in different directions. And Kripke certainly knows how to take ideas in interesting directions that hooks in viewers.

Plus Favreau does know how to direct characters. It’s almost a given that Revolution will be character driven.

Oh yeah — NBC ordered the pilot. So we can expect to see the show debut on NBC’s channel.

Now my only demand at this point is cast Misha Collins and Jim Beaver in lead roles. Why the hell not?
