The cast and crew of NBC’s hit series “Revolution” — which filmed its first season in Wilmington — can be seen in the Blu-ray/DVD release reflecting on their time in the Port City. The 20-epsiode set features special features that offer insight into the production process and the role Wilmington played in the series.
Actor Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Major Tom Neville, found Wilmington to be a “great place to shoot the show.”
“It has a wonderful southern charm, and people in the South are really accommodating and lovely,” said Esposito. “It also has a very, very deep history, which is really marvelous to be working in. I love it there.”
Billy Burke, who plays Miles Matheson, added: “In Wilmington, we sort of live in this precious little bubble. It is one of those towns where everybody is so generous. We love being there and they seem to love having us there.”
In April 2013, NBC confirmed that “Revolution’s” production would move from Wilmington to Austin, partly because of the creative direction of the series. Much of the second season will take place in Texas.
