Zak Orth joins J.J. Abrams' post-apocalyptic series "Revolution"

According to Deadline.com, 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.
