[video] Awake - Pilot

"Lots of people find themselves leading a double life… but none quite like this. After Detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) wakes up from a car accident with his wife and teenage son, he learns the devastating news that his wife died in the crash. Trying to put the pieces of his life back together, he wakes up a few days later to realize that his wife is very much alive and his son died in the accident! Did he lose his wife or his son? Or neither of them? Michael goes back to work solving crimes while trying to put things back on a "normal" track, but alternating between realities provides some challenges. Michael begins seeing two different therapists to help him sort things out, but then again why would he want either "reality" to go away when the totality of both means having his family complete? From groundbreaking writer Kyle Killen comes a drama about the power of the mind, where the inception of life is a mystery and reality might just be overrated." -- iTunes Store
