Breaking Bad alum Christopher Cousins has joined sophomore NBC drama Revolution as a recurring. The actor, repped by SDB Talent and manager Lisa DiSante-Frank, will play high-ranking Patriot Victor Doyle, who’s on a collision course with Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito).
“Revolution” (1.5/5 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) equaled its 18-49 rating of last week in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings and is within a tenth of a point of last week’s 1.6 in official nationals. Last night’s “Revolution” improved by 15% on NBC’s time-period result for the same night last year (1.5 vs. 1.3 with comedies) and was up 34% in total viewers (5.372 million vs. 3.997 million). Versus NBC’s slot average last season, “Revolution” is up by 5% in 18-49 (1.5 vs. 1.4, “live plus same day, non-sports”) and up 19% in total viewers (5.372 million vs. 4.509 million).
..Rachel and the folks of Willoughby, Texas, try to show the town’s kids that life does go on. “There’s a homespun feel to it,” says co-executive producer Anne Cofell Saunders, who also cowrote the episode. “If you watch carefully, you’ll see that when kids wear an old Darth Vader or Tweety Bird mask, the costume is mismatched. They don’t know the pop-culture references.”…

“Revolution” is an epic, swashbuckling drama from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and “Supernatural’s” Eric Kripke. With sweeping scope and intimate focus, this show centers on the Matheson family’s struggle to survive 15 years after a mysterious worldwide blackout. Their post-apocalyptic world is juxtaposed with bucolic, overgrown cities and a journey of hope, rebirth and retribution.

An In-depth Look at the Revolution Pilot – Featurette
I’m writing this… on a computer. For most of my life, that would be so mundane and so obvious that it’d be idiotic to even mention it. But now, I honestly never thought I’d see a blinking cursor ever again. Overhead, there are fluorescent lights. A breeze is blowing from an air conditioner. In the deepest bowels of this hole they ironically call ”The Tower,” I’m living my old life. Except I’m faced with what the true price of getting that life back would be. The people that live down here – the protectors of The Tower’s secrets – count Grace Beaumont among them, the woman Ben told me to find way back when I was just leaving our cul-de-sac.

I just can’t see how the world could get much worse, but once you start talking about the oxygen in the atmosphere igniting… Continue reading →

My name is Aaron Pittman and as unbelievable as it may sound, for the last few months, I have been on a quest to turn the power back on. Yes, as far as I know, I am not crazy. And no, I’m not joking.
