I stumbled across this trailer the other day and it looks intriguing. The pilot is directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man), produced by J.J. Abrams and created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural). So it should be ok. I could explain the premise but that is done pretty admirably in the trailer. Revolution looks pretty cool but I have two caveats:
1/ Don’t have a cheesy love thing going on between the young cast members because that will just make large sections boring. And predictable. And shit. A ‘will they or won’t they’ relationship will suffice if you have to have that kind of dynamic.
2/ Make it violent and adult. As was shown by Terra Nova making it too family friendly sucks all the tension out. And makes it predictable. And shit.
That’s all. Here is the trailer:
