J.J. Abrams teams up with Supernatural creator for NBC apocalypse drama

J.J. Abrams' next big TV series sounds like Fievel Mousekewitz and the American Apocalypse! NBC has just picked up Abrams' new pilot Revolution, which happens to be about a separated family after the end of the world.

Entertainment Weekly has the official log line for the project:

In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology - computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights - has mysteriously blacked out … forever.

But the best news is that Supernatural head honcho Eric Kripke is writing the script. Yes, finally a pilot to be legitimately excited about!
