JJ Abrams TV series Revolution picks North Carolina as base camp
A new TV series from Lost co-creator JJ Abrams is setting up its base camp in Wilmington, North Carolina. Revolution is a dystopian drama series set 15 years after the world has lost all its electrical power. The project has been confirmed as Iron Man 3 starts filming in the state.
The show’s pilot was filmed in Georgia, but North Carolina has been chosen for the full season shoot. Around 125 local crew members will be hired and authorities are hoping Revolution will become the latest long-running TV project to benefit the state.
This region has always been identified with having the crew, talent, equipment and facilities to economically produce film and television product.
Johnny Griffin, Wilmington Regional Film Commission
Johnny Griffin is Director of the Wilmington Regional Film Commission: “This region has always been identified with having the crew, talent, equipment and facilities to economically produce film and television product as demonstrated by Dawson’s Creek and One Tree Hill. Revolution now joins the list of productions which have chosen Wilmington as their place to live and work.”
Aaron Syrett is Director of the North Carolina Film Office: “The North Carolina film credit continues to create high-quality, well-paying jobs for North Carolinian professionals who have the skills and capabilities to handle the sophisticated level of production that an epic series like Revolution demands.”
