Today NBC released it’s fall TV line-up and one of the new shows is called “REVOLUTION” and it sounds very familiar to a lot of Glenn Beck fans and a few books Glenn has talked about especially his new series of e-books written by Chris Stewart, Wrath and Righteousness. Watch the video below from NBC and you will see what seems to be a halting to the way of life because electricity disappears in one swift moment and then America (and the world?) is thrown into chaos! Was that moment that cause all electricity to stop, the electro magnetic pulse or “EMP” scenario Glenn talks about all the time? Glenn has also talked about another book multiple times with this same scenario called One Second After by New York Times best selling author William R. Forstchen. Well NBC’s Revolution seems like something we might all experience of Glenn is right, again. As a fan of J.J. Abrams it would sure be nice to see him get out of the Hollywood community!
Watch Glenn introduce Wrath and Righteousness and talk about what an EMP could do to America with Chris Stewart:

Read the description of One Second After:
New York Times best selling author William R. Forstchen now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real…a story in which one man struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America loses a war, in one second, a war that will send America back to the Dark Ages…A war based upon a weapon, an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). A weapon that may already be in the hands of our enemies.
Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future…and our end.(amazon.com)
Here is more about Wrath and Righteousness:
THE WORLD IS ON THE BRINK.You must decide. Join us and we can show you a way to be king. Join us and we save you. But understand this: You will be joining a battle that goes far beyond what you see. You will be joining a battle that goes far beyond the simple struggle for power inside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We have a much larger battle, a much greater war, a much longer vision and a much longer plan.
The forces of Darkness, actively seeking to destroy all that is good, have focused their efforts on Saudi Prince Abdullah al-Rahman, second in line to the Royal House of Saud. By tempting the Prince with the Saudi throne, and power beyond his wildest imagination, Lucifer and his servants hope to unleash Armageddon and bring down the United States.
Meanwhile, a select group of individuals—blessed by Providence and given a special mission—have set out to challenge Lucifer’s plan. As players on both sides of the battle are inexorably drawn together in a fight for eternity, a child is born who may have the power to change everything.
More than a simple techno-thriller, Wrath & Righteousness examines the eternal battle between Light and Darkness while also asking one of the fundamental questions of our existence: what is mankind’s relationship to the spiritual world? Packed with thrilling action and underscored by a story of war, love and spirituality, Wrath & Righteousness has been described by #1 bestselling author and talk show host Glenn Beck as “the Left Behind series for a new generation.”
Wrath & Righteousness is a ten episode e-book series by New York Times bestselling author Chris Stewart. This series was previously published from 2003-2008 by Deseret Books under the title The Great and Terrible.(amazon.com)
Here is the the description of Revolution from NBC:
Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future. From director Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2”) and the fertile imaginations of J.J. Abrams (“Lost,” “Person of Interest”) and Eric Kripke (“Supernatural”), comes a surprising “what if” action-adventure series, where an unlikely hero will lead the world out of the dark. Literally. The series stars Billy Burke (“The Twilight Saga”), Tracy Spiridakos (“Being Human”), Anna Lise Phillips (“Terra Nova”), Zak Orth (“Romeo + Juliet“), Graham Rogers (“Memphis Beat”), J.D. Pardo (“A Cinderella Story”), Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad”), David Lyons (“The Cape”), Maria Howell (“The Blind Side”), Tim Guinee (“Iron Man”) and Andrea Roth (“Rescue Me”). Kripke, Abrams, Favreau and Bryan Burk (“Lost,” “Star Trek”) serve as executive producers. “Revolution” is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Favreau.
