Like most of Abrams' projects, details of his collaboration with Kripke are being kept under wraps, but here's what we can tell you:

Revolution, a drama written by Kripke, has gotten a pilot production commitment from NBC, Deadline.com reports. Not much is known about Revolution, other than that it's being described as an epic adventure thriller. And what do you know, we love all things epic, we love adventure and we love thrillers! The project comes from Abrams' production company Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV. Abrams, Kripke and Bryan Burk are serving as executive producers.

Both Abrams and Kripke currently have a lot on their plate. In addition to his two new shows (Alcatraz and Person of Interest), Abrams' Fox show Fringe is still going strong and he's set to direct the highly anticipated Star Trek sequel. Kripke is writing and executive producing Deadman, an adaption of the DC Comic of the same name, for the CW.
