First 7 Minutes of NBC's New Series 'Awake' Address the Strange Twist
To hype up the anticipated premiere of "Awake", NBC has previewed the first seven minutes of the first episode. It opens with a car accident involving main character Detective Michael Britten, his wife Hannah, and son Rex.
The accident fractures his life into two competing realities: one in which Rex survived while Hannah is dead, and the other in which Hannah survived but Rex did not. Trying to keep both his loved ones alive, Michael starts living a "double life", dealing with different personal conflicts.
Trying to regain some normalcy, Michael returns to police work and solves crimes in both worlds with the help of two different partners. He additionally meets two different therapists to consult about his conditions, admitting that he is not sure which one is a dream and which one is a reality.
"Awake" has Jason Issacs starring as Detective Michael. Laura Allen and Dylan Minnette portray his wife and son respectively, while Steve Harris and Wilmer Valderrama join the cast as his partners. The fantasy drama series will start airing Thursday, March 1 at 10/9c on NBC.
