Sky1 is planning a Revolution – the sci-fi series, to be precise. The ratings-pleasing US hit comes to our shores in the New Year. Over 13million American viewers were drawn to the post-apocalyptic story of Charlie Matheson – whose brother Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders, forcing Charlie to put together a gang of survivors who attempt to rescue Danny in a chaotic world with no electricity where militia leaders rule. With Hunger Games fever on the rise, Katniss Everdeen lookalike Tracy Spiridakos plays Charlie Matheson. Twilight’s Billy Burke also makes an appearance as Charlie’s Uncle Miles – a former marine who will be key to helping the survivors rescue Danny. The relatively unknown Graham Rogers is Danny, whilst the series also sees Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito back on the small screen.
