NBC has a new show coming out this fall from producer J.J. Abrams and director John Favreau about what happens 15 years after the entire world loses electricity. The premise for the show is cool, but doesn’t it just feel like this show is going to get cancelled after about five episodes? Maybe it’s that the trailer reveals the electricity hasn’t really gone out, or maybe it’s the solidly bland cast or maybe it’s NBC’s poor track record when it comes to science fiction.
Like CBS’s long-cancelled Jericho, this feels like a show that needs to be on a premium cable channel or at the very least FX. (Also, combing through the upfront trailers seems harder and harder to find shows that look promising)
