Well, it’s been tried before on network TV, but it looks like despite the bad track record of such series there will be a new post-apocalyptic series on NBC. Funny, you’d think they would have learned their lesson after ‘Jericho’.
What we’re getting this time is something that looks like a cross between Stirling’s SCA-saves-the-world nerdfest “Dies The Fire” series and a touch of “One Second After”/”Lights Out”. Trailer? Sure, here ya go:
I’ll be the first to say that JJ Abrams comes out with some interesting stuff, but selling the post-apocalyptic genre on network television has never really gone over well. Oh, sure…I’ll watch it, I never turn down a chance to watch this sort of thing, but if I were an actor on the show I’d keep polishing my resume and keeping my options open. I’m guessing Lennie James was unavailable to sign on for yet another end-of-the-world role.
