Revelations Is Adventure

Jeff Zucker, president of NBC Universal Television Group, told SCI FI Wire that the upcoming midseason supernatural series Revelations will be an action-adventure series in the style of Indiana Jones. "It's really … more about … the search for whether or not the prophecies in the Book of Revelation are coming true," Zucker said in an interview at NBC's fall press preview in Los Angeles. "That's really what it's about. It's more Raiders of the Lost Ark in that respect and a thriller than it is about trying to stop the end of the world."

Revelations, which is tentatively set to premiere in January 2005, stars Bill Pullman and Natascha McElhone in a one-hour drama about a group of people who are struggling to forestall the prophecies in the Book of Revelation.

Zucker also downplayed comparisons with ABC's ill-fated supernatural-themed drama Miracles from last season. "It's really an adventure," he said. "It's not similarly themed at all. … There's maybe a religious underpinning to it, but it's not that at all. It's an action-adventure. Miracles was not an action adventure. That was trying to do miracles. That's not what this is at all. It's completely different."

NBC is owned by NBC Universal, which also owns SCIFI.COM.
