‘Revolution’ Launches Live-Action Prequel Webseries
Filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina, following a series of animated webisodes that premired online over the last six weeks, NBC’s Revolution is now launching a live-action prequel webseries that will again premeire each week online leading up to the March return of new episodes.
Premiering this Monday, Feb. 25 on NBC.com, Entertainment Weekly reports that the webseries will “flashback to 11 years after the blackout and the night Miles (Billy Burke) first tried to assassinate Gen. Monroe (David Lyons). The story will follow Capt. Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) on a mission to hunt down and kill and those who had a hand in the attempt to assassinate Monroe. While on his journey, however, Neville will apparently stumble upon an even greater conspiracy that could change the course of the Republic forever.”
Both Esposito and Lyons will star in the five-episode webseries, also filmed in Wilmington.
Revolution stars Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga), Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost, V), Tracy Spiridakos (Being Human), Tim Guinee (Iron Man, Vampires), JD Pardo (Breaking Dawn Part 2), Zak Orth (Romeo + Juliet), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Daniella Alonso (One Tree Hill), Davie Lyons (Safe Haven), and Gastonia, North Carolina native Maria Howell (The Color Purple, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire).
New episodes return to NBC on Monday, March 25 at 10pm.
