More first-look clips from new NBC series pickups (see my Infamous post below this one).

Giancarlo Esposito co-stars in this new ensemble cast thriller series that was officially greenlit by NBC last week., titled Revolution.

The project is yet another J.J. Abrams creation (the dude is everywhere) along with Eric Kripke, and is described as a high-octane action drama following a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist.

Esposito, who earned acclaim for his performance in the most recent season of AMC's hit drama Breaking Bad, plays a character named Captain Neville described as "a southern lieutenant with an air of mystery." If any actor can pull off "an air of mystery" it's Mr Esposito. In fact, he can pull of just about anything! The man is that versatile! 

Maria Howell ( Detroit 1-8-7Single LadiesMississippi DamnedThe Blind Side) also co-stars as you'll see in the preview below.

Jon Favreau directed the pilot episode.

First, here's a preview/trailer for the series; and underneath that you'll find 2 additional clips - a scene from the pilot, and Giancarlo briefly talks about the character he plays and the series:

    Actually The Event and Jericho were good series. The Event was really becoming interesting after a slow buildup. Unfortunately, it was cancelled before there could be a resolution.

    This looks good. Hopefully it doesn't get jacked up by the network the way NBC did The Event and CBS did Jericho.
