NBC Rolling Out Animated 'Revolution' Webisodes EW

NBC will try to keep viewer interest in its freshman drama "Revolution" by rolling out animated webisodes during the show’s winter hiatus, reports EW.com's Inside TV.

A new webisode will debut online every week through Feb. 18 on NBC.com, YouTube and Hulu and via VOD. NBC is also airing a version of the pilot online that includes commentary from director Jon Favreau and showrunner Eric Kripke.

The six webisodes are based on letters written by a character who led Miles into a trap set by General Monroe, the piece adds.

“Revolution” returns March 25.
