NBC’s Revolution drama, now viewable online but officially premiering Sept. 17, has recruited Grey’s Anatomy alum Kim Raver for a juicy recurring role.
Set 15 years in the future, Revolution — exec-produced by J.J. Abrams and penned by Eric Kripke (Supernatural) — depicts the aftermath of a global blackout, in which all power goes out. Billy Burke and Tracy Spiradakos lead one band of survivors, while Breaking Bad Emmy nominee Giancarlo Esposito plays Capt. Neville, the officious leader of a militia serving the makeshift Monroe Republic.
Details on Raver’s character are being kept under lock and key, but sources confirm that the part is a pivotal one. (BTW, the Revolution pilot can currently be viewed at NBC.com.)
In addition to her turns as Grey’s doc Teddy Altman, who was written off the ABC series in May, and of course 24′s Audrey Raines, Raver’s TV credits include The Nine, Lipstick Jungle and Third Watch.
