TORONTO (August 9, 2012) The lights will go out –literallywhen Citytv presents the exclusive pre-screening of the most highly anticipated new drama this fall RevolutionCitytv invites attendees to brave the blackout for the screening event of the season, only at Fan Expo Canada, on Friday, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. ET at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Headlining Citytv’s fall 2012 lineup on Monday, Sept. 17 at 10 p.m. ET, Revolution is an epic adventure 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). Set in a post-apocalyptic society, the thrilling one-hour drama follows a family’s struggle to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology – computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights – has mysteriously blacked out forever. 

For additional program information and images:

Revolution is seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Canadian Tracy Spiridakos, Being Human), and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers, Memphis Beat). When Danny is kidnapped by the militia, namely Captain Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito, Breaking Bad) for a darker purpose, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke, The Twilight Saga), a former U.S. Marine living a reclusive life. Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America. All the while, they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed, and if – or how – it will ever return.
Fans eager to unravel the mystery behind the blackout can be the first to join the Revolution at this exclusive pre-screening event on a first come, first served basis. Admission to the screening begins at 6:30 p.m. ET at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, located at 255 Front Street West, Toronto, Ontario. Known as the “Comic Con of Canada,” Fan Expo Canada is one of the largest pop culture events in North America.
