According to, actor Zak Orth (WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER, THE OTHER GUYS) has joined the J.J. Abrams-produced post-apocalyptic thriller "Revolution". He joins Tim Guinee, Tracy Spiridakos, Graham Rodgers, Giancarlo Esposito and Anna Lise Phillips in the series, which is being prepped for a 2013 premiere on NBC.

In the 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.

Sounds pretty ambitious, and if done right, it could be a kickass network companion to "The Walking Dead" (which has to have been a partial inspiration).

Jon Favreau is directing the pilot episode, which was penned by J.J. Abrahms and "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke. Big names behind-the-scenes on this one; let's hope it translates into small-screen magic.
