Revolution revolves around a postapocalyptic Earth where, 15 years prior, “the lights went out,” forcing people to make do without electricity and other power sources. Billy Burke (Twilight) plays a former military type who leads a band of survivors, Mitchell his sister-in-law, and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) the enforcer for a dictatorship which has taken over parts of America.

Fahey will guest-star in an early episode as a character named Hutch, a show rep tells TVLine.
