J.J. Abrams' next big TV series sounds like Fievel Mousekewitz and the American Apocalypse! NBC has just picked up Abrams' new pilot Revolution, which happens to be about a separated family after the end of the world.

Entertainment Weekly has the official log line for the project:

In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology - computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights - has mysteriously blacked out … forever.


But the best news is that Supernatural head honcho Eric Kripke is writing the script. Yes, finally a pilot to be legitimately excited about!
