One of the more fascinating new shows that will be premiering this Fall Season is the new NBC series ‘Revolution.’ Now a clip has emerged which shows the beginning of the world wide blackout setting the premise of the whole show.

‘Revolution’ takes place 15 years after this event so the reason why all electrical power is suddenly lost is part of the mystery of the series. Creator/executive producer Eric Kripke (‘Supernatural’) has teased in the past that the phenomenon can actually occur so whether the scientific theory behind this occurance will be explained remains to be seen.

Here’s the synopsis of the series:

Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down, lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.

With the pedigree of Kripke creating and writing on the show, J.J. Abrams as executive producer and Jon Favreau directing the pilot episode, ‘Revolution’ is off to a great start!

The series will premiere on NBC at 10PM Mondays starting September 17 replacing ‘Grimm’ which will return to its normal time slot on Fridays.
