Since ABC's LOST finished it's historic run, many shows have been trying to capture the vacant mantle of "Weird, Must Watch. TV." Fast Forward, Defying Gravity, The Event and many more have tried but none have come close. Finally, the folks at NBC may have produced a very strong contender. Awake is an alternate reality drama that follows Detective Michael Britten(The gifted Jason Issacs) after he survives a tragic car accident. When he awakes he is crushed to find that his wife has died, yet feels fortunate to have had his son survive. The next morning he awakes to find that somehow his situation has reversed and his wife survived and his son actually died. Once he realizes the specifics of the situation, Britten struggles to live this bizarre double life. He employs the services of two different psychiatrists to help him figure it all out. The trailer starts out with a definite dramatic tone, yet as complications arise, his two realities begin to overlap and the possibilities of were the story could go become very compelling. Was the accident a catalyst for Britten's break down, or a bridge to another reality? The cinematic feel of the trailer and Jason Issacs amazing talent totally sell AWAKE. It looks like it could be a monster success.
