NBC celebrates the debut of its new action drama “Revolution” with free advance screenings across the country. Ten cities were selected to host the screenings based on results from “Power by the People”, a social media voting campaign on the series’ Facebook page earlier this summer.
The winning cities are: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City and Seattle
The New York City screening will take place Tuesday, September 4th with an added stunt layer. The screening will take place for a 1,000 guests on the notable Hudson River Park’s Pier 57 and the screening will truly be “powered by the people” — as 80 power peddlers will dramatically pedal bicycles manually generating power to support the screening. Leading up to the 4th, members of the public are being invited to be a part of the “power peddler” team on-site and help power up the screening. Guests are encouraged to bike or walk to the screening and bike valet will be provided.
Screenings in the other winning cities will take place on Thursday, September 6.
“Revolution” is the story of a family struggling to reunite in a world dealing with the aftermath of the mysterious operational failure of all technology, and uncovering the mystery of why the power failed… and if it will ever return.
“Revolution” is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with J.J. Abrams (Bad Robot Productions), Eric Kripke (Kripke Enterprises) and Warner Bros. Television. Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk (“Lost,” “Star Trek”) serve as executive producers, and Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2”) serves as co-executive producer, and also directed the pilot.
The series stars Tracy Spiridakos, Graham Rogers, and Billy Burke, with supporting cast members Anna Lise Phillips, Zak Orth, JD Pardo, Giancarlo Esposito, David Lyons, Maria Howell, Daniella Alonso, Tim Guinee, and Elizabeth Mitchell.
“Revolution” will debut on Monday, September 17 (10-11 pm ET) after “The Voice” on NBC
