NBC’s 2nd big premiere for a midseason show, is the riveting drama Awake, makes its television broadcast premiere on Thursday, March 1st at 10/9c although for those who have been itching to check out the well-reviewed freshman show, you can check out the entire 1st episode online.
Awake was created by Kyle Killen (Lone Star), Awake stars Jason Isaacs (Brotherhood) as Michael Britten, a homicide investigator who in the wake of a tragic automobile crash toggles between two realities — one in which his wife (Terriers‘ Laura Allen) passed away, and a different one where it was his son (Lost’s Dylan Minnette) who died. Likewise, his investigator partners (The Practice‘s Steve Harris vs.That ’70s Show’s Wilmer Valderrama) differ from reality to reality, yet the cases they work share some eerily similar aspects.
Framing Michael’s dreamlike journey are therapy sessions with distinct psychiatrists, played by Cherry Jones (24) and B.D. Wong (Law & Order: SVU). They each labor to explain that there's no way both realities can in fact be real, yet Michael begs to differ.
Watch it now and Enjoy!
