First Look: Awake, NBC

May 18, 2011

Remember last year’s first show to fizzle out and be canceled, the critically-lauded Lone Star? Well, the creator (writer Kyle Killen) is back with a new show that has a wildly different, yet somewhat similar story. The lead is a detective who has a horrible car crash with his wife and son. He awakes to find out that his wife is dead. Then, a few days later, he awakes to find out that his wife is alive, but his son is dead. Confusing? Yes. Interesting? Without a doubt. He’s living two separate lives. Both seem real. He even has two shrinks (one, B.D. Wong, from Oz; the other, Cherry Jones from 24). I don’t know what will happen, but my ass will certainly be tuning in to watch it unfold… Awake on NBC (full schedule here).
