As we reported earlier in the week, filming for the NBC series Revolution is officially underway in Wilmington, N.C. Though the pilot was shot in Atlanta, Wilmington was chosen for the series thanks to its impressive film incentives.

The show, about a world in which all forms of energy have disappeared leaving everyone in darkness and isolated from one another, was created by J.J. Abrams.

Thanks to one of our Twitter tipters, @colettuce22, we’ve learned Revolution is filming at the Roanoke Cement Factory, located at 6411 Ideal Cement Road in Castle Hayne, through Friday.
