To celebrate the release of their upcoming live concert film and album Celebration Day, available Monday, November 19, Led Zeppelin has granted NBC and Warner Bros. Television rights to feature two of their songs in an episode of the hit series "Revolution," airing later that night (10:01-11:00 p.m. ET) on NBC.
The classic Led Zeppelin tracks "Kashmir" and "Since I've Been Loving You" will be showcased in "Revolution" on Monday, November 19. Following last night's all-new episode, NBC debuted a special trailer, featuring "Kashmir," for the November 19 episode. A promo for "Revolution" featuring "Kashmir" will run throughout the week on NBC, and an extended version of the trailer will be available on NBC.com/Revolution.
"Anyone who really knows me knows how obsessed I am with Led Zeppelin. So the fact that the band agreed to put two songs in my show is, very seriously, a career high-point," said Eric Kripke, creator and executive producer of "Revolution."
Live versions of both songs are available on Celebration Day, which chronicles Led Zeppelin's legendary 2007 concert at London's O2 Arena. The epic performance was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band's signature blues-infused rock 'n' roll including such landmark tracks as "Whole Lotta Love," "Rock And Roll," and "Stairway To Heaven." Celebration Day will be available in multiple audio and video formats on November 19 and can be pre-ordered now at ledzeppelin.com.
"Revolution" is the epic adventure from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and "Supernatural's" Eric Kripke, about a family struggling to reunite in an American landscape void of electricity: 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. Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk ("Lost," "Star Trek") serve as executive producers, and Jon Favreau ("Iron Man" movies) serves as co-executive producer. "Revolution" is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television.
