TV is very popular during Comic-Con in San Diego. So much so that most of the major TV networks represent and bring their shows down to the event to give fans a chance to see and get excited for new and returing programs.
One new show trying to take advantage of the captive audience during the Con is NBC’s Awake. The show, which stars Jason Isaacs, centers on police detective Michael Britten (Isaacs) who regains consciousness following a car accident involving his wife Hannah (Laura Allen) and his son Rex (Dylan Minnette).
Michael moves back and forth between two realities: in one, Rex survived while Hannah is dead; in the other, Hannah survived but Rex did not. Trying to keep both his loved ones alive, Michael starts living a “double life,” moving back and forth between the two realities, dealing with different personal conflicts and police partners.
To help you get ready for the show, we’ve got two videos. One features star Jason Isaacs, who explains what attracted him to the show and concept. The second features Executive Producers Kyle Killen and Howard Gordon who discuss the show and it’s upcoming season.
Click through to check out both the videos. Awake premieres on NBC in the Fall.
