Even after (finally) committing to direct Star Trek 2, J.J. Abrams shows little signs of slowing down. With the returning Fringe and the new Person of Interest and Alcatraz already on his television slate, he's adding to his workload with an "epic adventure thriller" with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke.
Deadline reports that Revolution has received a pilot production commitment from NBC. Savor the title as, given that this is an Abrams project, all of the others details are being kept secret.
The drama, written by Kripke, hails from Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot. Abrams, Kripke and Bryan Burk will executive produce.
While Kripke is no Abrams, he hasn't been a slacker since stepping back from Supernatural last year. The top choice of Warner Bros. to develop an adaptation of Sandman that never got off the ground, he was tapped just last month to shepherd DC Comics' Deadman to television.
