We’ve been waiting a long time to see “Awake,” but now we don’t need to even hold out until the show’s scheduled debut on March 1 to see the pilot episode. NBC has made the full pilot available online a full two weeks ahead of its premiere date.
“Awake” stars Jason Isaacs as a detective who survives a car accident, but awakes to two different realities. In one, his wife is alive and his son died in the accident. In the other his son survived, but not his wife. He isn’t sure which one is real and which is the dream.
The show has been on the back burner for a season, but will finally air in place of the John Grisham-inspired legal dram “The Firm,” which failed to find an audience.
