Eric Kripke & J.J Abrams -- Up-Coming Projects Including 'Revolution'

Eric Kripke's Revolution (the pilot) has been greenlit by NBC. Kripke is joined by J.J Abrams and Bryan Burk as Executive Producers. A short description has surfaced on a few websites:
“In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever.”
Craveonline also mentioned that Deadman the TV series which Kripke is currently tied to as well, may also get a pilot. The CW has picked up a few pilot recently, but Deadman is not on the list, yet. The interesting thing is, J.J Abrams is also producing other pilots for other TV networks including Shelter, its pilot has already been picked up by the CW. Speculation is that should Revolution and/ or Shelter get picked up as a series, we will see them in Fall 2012. Read the full article on Craveonline.

Just how many projects is J.J Abrams currently involved? Let's see...

Star Trek Sequel (movie, director/ exec producer)
Cloverfield (movie, exec producer)
Alcatraz (TV, exec producer)
Person of Interest (TV, exec producer)
Fringe (TV, exec producer)
Revolution (TV, exec producer)
Shelter (TV, exec producer)

That's seven known projects including movies and TV series (am I missing any others?). I am beginning to think that he is a machine... I mean.. does the guy sleep? I mean, even if he is the creator of the above TV shows and exec produces them and let others to be the showrunners, he still needs to be involved. He will direct and write a few episodes at least, right? I gotta say, I am a huge fan of Lost, I love what JJ does, I love his ideas! But the only project I truly care about is Revolution and Kripke's other baby Deadman, I hope it gets pick up for a season!  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE?!!!!??!!

Kripke is SUPER busy too. Apart from Revolution and Deadman, he is still involved as the consultant producer for Supernatural. And he is also the writer and director for the movie, Haunted. If 'Kripke' is a religion, I will go to church for him every Sunday.
