NBC sets Awake date

0 Comments 04 February 2012

Grab your big red pen and open up your diary to March 1, for that’s the date that Kyle Killen’s double life drama Awake will premiere on NBC in the US. Our faith in Killen, whose credits include the excellent but shoddily-treated Lone Star, is so strong that if the show turns out to be a turkey we’ll run down the nearest high street naked shouting “It is your duty to mock us; we’ve misled literally tens of people”.

Awake sees Jason Isaacs play a police detective who, following a car accident involving his family, switches between two tragic realities every time he wakes up. In one his son survives and his wife dies, in the other vice versa. As well as having a different loved one to grieve in each, to try and work through the pain he also has different crimes to tackle with different partners — as well as different therapists to talk things over with. But despite being largely opposed both existences share some striking parallels which may be the key to cracking the mystery of what really happened.

Trust us, it’s going to be great. Although we reserve the right to renege on that naked high street thing if it turns out that his wife and kid are both alive and it’s him that’s been dead all along. Because that would be rubbish.
