NBC is making a splash at Comic-Con 2013 with stars and producers of several shows – including The Blacklist (above left), Community, Grimm, Hannibal (above right), and Revolution – headlining panels. Ironside star Blair Underwood will be a part of the TV Guide Fan Faves panel, while SNL veteran Seth Meyers and Late Night with Seth Meyers producer Michael Shoemaker will appear on the Hulu panel.
Revolution is one of the few bright spots, ratings-wise, on the NBC schedule and it closes out its rookie season this evening with the possibility of bringing back the power. After you check out the finale teaser (above), follow the jump for two clips from the finale.
Five NBC drama have been renewed for the 2013-14 season. Grimm will return for a third season; Chicago Fire (no surprise – a spin-off is being considered) and Revolution (the net’s best new performer) get a second; Jason Katims’ family drama Parenthood re-ups for a fifth season (besting Katims’ cult fave Roswell by a season), and Law & Order: SVU will be going into its fifteenth season.
All five shows have been given 22-episode orders. The press release follows the jump.
Following its early season vault from fourth place to first in the ratings for this season’s premiere week, NBC has given early full season orders to three first-year shows: Revolution, Go One and The New Normal.
Check out the official press release following the jump.
The series premiere of NBC’s Revolution (premiering Monday, September 17 at 10/9C), will be featured in a series of theatrical screenings in 11 cities in the US. Follow the jump to learn where these screenings will be held – and how to get your free tickets.
NBC has made the full comic-Con panels for a number of its shows available for everyone. Check out the panels for upcoming series Revolution (above) and returning series Grimm (after the jump). Then tell me about them – they won’t play for Canadians…
As we get closer to the new season, NBC has made a number of videos available in support of its unique take on a post-apocalyptic world. In Revolution, from J.J. Abrams (Alias, Fringe, Lost) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural), the apocalyspe isn’t some nuclear holocaust, it’s something much subtler and yet, far more pervasive: everything run by electricity just stops – the lights go out; cars stop running; planes fall from the sky.
Revolution posits a world that is forced to revert to simpler ways but hasn’t yet forgotten what it’s lost – a world in which the best and worst of humanity are brought to the fore. Being a J.J., Abrams project, there is a mystery that we become privy to over the course of the series. A death sets off a quest and there will be swashbuckling action.
Revolution premieres on September 17th, 2012, at 10/9C.
