Anna Lise Phillips (Maggie) and Tracy Spiridakos (Charlie) joke around on set
Our Ashlea Kosikowski poses with Billy Burke (Miles Matheson) for a picture between takes
WILMIGNTON, NC (WECT) – NBC's Revolution will premiere right here on WECT in less than a month.
However, we're already getting an idea of what you can expect to see from the actors staring on the show.
"It is about hope and that sprinkled with lots of action," said Billy Burke, who will play Miles Matheson, a reluctant freedom fighter. "He's this ex-military guy who has all these skills but he doesn't want to use them anymore. He's tired of that. But his niece comes and finds him and brings him back for the cause."
The show picks up 15 years after a mysterious blackout, which makes everything stop working - from electricity to cars to cell phones.
In the show, Miles's niece, Charlie, travels to Chicago to reunite with him after tragedy strikes the family. Aaron, who is played by Zak Orth, makes the trip with her.
"He formed a pretty close bond with this guy, Ben, who dies suddenly and violently and leaves him with this mysterious pendant," Orth said. "He starts to get this idea that he can use it to turn the lights back on – so that makes him try to go on this adventure to try to change the world."
Anna Lise Phillips is also along for the adventure. She plays Maggie.
"She is a doctor, so she has an innate strength that she is not afraid of mortality," she said. "But it doesn't mean she knows how to deal with murders and bears and people with guns."
From watching the trailer, you can tell the show will be action packed.
